This Week’s Best New Songs: Kim Gordon, Adrianne Lenker, Tomato Flower, 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 the lead single from Kim Gordon’s new album, ‘BYE BYE’, in which a blown-out hip-hop beat clashes against deadpan vocals and eerie guitar; Adrianne Lenker’s raw, comforting new single ‘sadness as a gift’, which leads her next album Bright Future; Chelsea Wolfe’s ‘Everything Turns Blue’, another haunting slow-burn from her forthcoming album; Tomato Flower’s ‘Saint’, which feels frantic, detached, and pensive at the same; Jlin’s ‘The Precision of Infinity’, a collaboration with Philip Glass that juxtaposes frenetic drums with elegantly moving piano; ‘coelacanth’, the gracefully orchestrated yet explosive opener of glass beach’s second album; and ‘GUILTY’, the astounding first single from Moor Mother’s upcoming album, featuring harp from Mary Lattimore and singing from Lonnie Holley and Raia Was.
