Throughout the week, we update our Best New Songs playlist with the new releases that caught our attention the most, be it a single leading up to the release of an album or a newly unveiled deep cut. And each Monday, we round up the best new songs released over the past week (the eligibility period begins on Monday and ends Sunday night) in this best new music segment.
On this week’s list, we have the latest single from Dan Bejar’s upcoming Destroyer album, LABYRINTHITIS, ‘June’, which is as funky as it is feverishly existential; Father John Misty’s gorgeous, melancholy new song ‘Goodbye Mr. Blue’; Horsegirl’s new single ‘Anti-glory’, which combines captivating guitars, dense lyrics, and a strikingly direct chorus; ‘Vocoder’, the heady, intensely hypnotic seven-minute club track from Floating Points; Spiritualized’s sprawling, beautifully euphoric new single ‘The Mainline Song’; Tomberlin’s mesmerizing new track ’tap’, which is filled with wonderfully arranged flickers of life; ’Happiness’, a gentle highlight from Maia Friedman’s debut album; and ‘Good Before’, the stunning, reflective new single from Maria BC’s upcoming debut LP.
