However, it can be difficult to discover new music when the radio just plays the same 4 songs on repeat all day. Or even worse, when you’re stuck in a music rut and can’t seem to get out. We know how that feels, and we’ve got your back. If you feel like you’ve missed out on the best new releases this week, look no further. Here are 5 new songs that you can’t afford to miss. So, put your headphones on, press play and lose yourself in the music.
Don’t Think Twice – Albert Hammond, Jr.
With his third studio album, Albert Hammond, Jr. has cemented his status as a solo artist to watch out for. The Strokes‘ guitarist’s newest LP makes the most of his pop sensibilities and his background as an indie rock idol. The result? Beautiful tracks like Don’t Think Twice!
Spit It Out – The Maccabees
Though The Maccabees‘ new record leaves a lot to be desired, Spit It Out perfectly embodies everything we love about the band’s music. Though the track lacks the signature Maccabees humor, it shows a grittier side of the band, which we love!
Staring at the Sun – MIKA
If happiness was a song, it’d be this one. Staring at the Sun is the kind of upbeat pop song that only MIKA could treat us to! We don’t know about you, but we sure are glad that he’s back!
Pretty Pimpin – Kurt Vile
A good song by any name would sound just as good, and Pretty Pimpin by Kurt Vile is the perfect example of that. In fact, it might just be one of the strongest lead singles we’ve heard in a while. The track has us counting down the days to b’lieve i’m goin down… Is it September 25 yet?
Born to Play Guitar – Buddy Guy
Much like fine wine, Buddy Guy only grows better with age. In case anyone had their doubts, this album shows everyone that he was indeed born to play the guitar. Whether or not you love the Blues, Born to Play Guitar is a track that everyone should have on their playlist!
