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 Yaeji’s hypnotic and immersive With a Hammer single ‘Passed Me By’; Avalon Emerson’s affecting, playfully intimate ‘Karaoke Song’; ‘Turkey Vultures’, a breathtaking highlight from Wednesday’s new album; ‘Guilty’, the first single from Veruca Salt vocalist-guitarist Louise Post’s first solo album, which is both hooky and indignant; Moreish Idols’ fiery, engrossing new single ‘Chum’; and ‘The Way It Was’, the devastatingly spare closing track from Jana Horn’s The Window Is the Dream.
