There’s so much exciting new music, hunties: from Jack Antonoff’s side-project-turned-full-fledged-band-project Bleachers new song “Don’t Take The Money,” to Tei Shi’s highly anticipated debut album “Crawl Space” (if you haven’t heard ‘Keep Running,’ you’re really missing out), to Sampha’s visual treat for ‘Process,’ it’s hard to keep up, but I’ve put together some of the best new songs/albums that are out right now so you can put more spring in your step.
Check it out:
‘Don’t Take The Money’ by Bleachers
Jack Antonoff’s second album for Bleachers is almost here and from the sound of his new single (released today on his birthday), “Don’t Take The Money” is refreshingly fun. Think Morrissey meets Billy Ocean and as real life girlfriend Lena Dunham described on her Instagram: “a song that makes your hair blow in the wind.”
Happy 33rd birthday to my gorgeous and brilliant partner @jackantonoff! Today is a special day because it's the anniversary of his birth but also because he's releasing his first single Don't Take The Money off his second Bleachers album. Bleachers has evolved from a side project made covertly in motel rooms across America to a full-fledged rock band with vision and style. This song is the truest expression of Jack's essence yet and it will make your hair blow in the wind, it really will. Congratulations peanut #pianoplayerwanted #pianoplayerfound
And if the background vocals sound familiar – well it’s Lorde! This isn’t their first collaboration:
I’ve been obsessed with Tei Shi’s sound and visuals since “Keep Running:”
Ever since, I’ve seen her live in concert (she’s INCREDIBLE), instagrammed with her, and have never stopped listening to ‘Keep Running.’ Take a full listen here:
If you don’t know about Sampha, you’re WAY behind! Take a listen and escape into his cinematic beauty:
Also: you should listen to her collaboration with Mura Musa.
It’s just fun and REALLY catchy:
Who knew it would be so damn good?! It’s at the intersection of pop meets melancholia and I love it.
Okay, SO this is six months old (but it’s just hitting the radio) and we are obsessed with his curls in the office.
Take a listen to some of these great artists this weekend while you’re out in about!
