This Week’s Best New Songs: J Mascis, Softcult, Liquid Mike, 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.

    On this week’s list, we have J Mascis’ enjoyable, melodic ‘Set Me Down’, the latest single from his upcoming album What Do We Do Now; ‘Heaven’, the blissfully ethereal new track from Softcult, the duo of Canadian twins Mercedes and Phoenix Arn-Horn; PACKS’ mellow, country-inflected new single ‘Paige Machine’; and Liquid Mike’s driving new song ‘K2’, which leads the Marquette, Michigan-based band’s forthcoming LP Paul Bunyan’s Slingshot.
