This Week’s Best New Songs: Caroline Polachek, Girl Ray, Westerman, and More

    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.

    This week’s list includes the latest single from Caroline Polachek’s new album, ‘Blood and Butter’, which is both exhilarating and wonderfully detailed in its construction; ‘Echolalia’, the thrilling lead single off Yves Tumor’s upcoming LP; ’Spaces’, another striking preview of Black Belt Eagle Scout’s forthcoming album; Girl Ray’s ‘Everybody’s Saying That’, an infectious slice of nu disco; ’I Am the River’, the warm, propulsive lead cut from the singer-songwriter’s second LP for Sub Pop; Westerman’s gorgeous, reflective new single ‘CSI: Petralona’, which accompanied the announcement of his sophomore album; and Debby Friday’s ‘I GOT IT’, a hard-hitting collaboration with Chris Vargas of Pelada and Uñas.
