Take It Easy in the Most Beautiful Way Possible With Wet's 'Deadwater'

Last year, the New York indie trio Wet released one of the most gorgeous, tight, intuitively correct debut EPs in a minute, and now they’ve started releasing new music in advance of their upcoming album. “Deadwater” has them sounding fresh and clean and familiar: as in most of the tracks on their EP, vocalist Kelly… » 4/22/15 11:30am Wednesday 11:30am

Sinead Harnett's New Track 'She Ain't Me' Is Thunderously Good

UK singer Sinead Harnett’s been a reliably good feature vocalist in the last several years—she’s skilled and flexible on Wiley’s “Walk Away,” Disclosure’s “Boiling,” Ryan Hemsworth’s “Small + Lost”—but this new single has her nailing down her particular charisma and jumping back over the “ft.” hurdle with ease.… » 4/17/15 1:50pm 4/17/15 1:50pm

Listen to 'The Fool,' a New Track From Imminent Pop Star Ryn Weaver

Following up her blissy and excellent Promises EP, pop singer-songwriter Ryn Weaver (neé Aryn Wuthrich) drops her debut full-length The Fool on June 16, and its slightly folk-tilted title track displays the sound Weaver's already solidified: lucent, prismatic, flushed instrumentation under a confident, unhurried… » 4/10/15 5:20pm 4/10/15 5:20pm

Watch Jessie Ware Perform Heartbreak Classic 'Say You Love Me' Live

Jessie Ware, already tremendous, is always better live: she's so smooth and poised a vocalist that the slightest bit of studio refinement can blur out all that breath, sinew, tenacity that clenches and smokes around her voice while she manipulates it. Here she is on the Late Late Show with James Corden performing her… » 4/10/15 11:30am 4/10/15 11:30am

Listen to Carly Rae Jepsen's New, Magical, Crystalline Song 'All That'

Press play! What do you know, you're in an empty roller rink on disco night, and the whole thing's filling with dry-ice smoke that flashes pastel under the lights, and you're slow-dancing with yourself and it's incredibly important. Am I wrong? Do I care? Carly Rae, take me away. » 4/06/15 6:30pm 4/06/15 6:30pm

I Demand That You Listen to This Perfect Carly Rae Jepsen Remix

I really, really, really, really, really wish this was the radio edit! Recycle Culture is Erik Moline's DIY project, whose aesthetic is summed up nicely in the title of a 2013 single: "Blank Babe Blissed Out in the House of Surreality." As it were, that phrase also sums up Carly Rae Jepsen's musical sweet spot (as… » 3/09/15 11:55pm 3/09/15 11:55pm

Zendaya Slays This Song With Bobby Brackins and Jeremih

We could have stopped at "Zendaya slays," but here we are: on this new club track by Bobby Brackins and featuring Jeremih, appropriately titled "My Jam," the young singer and burgeoning style icon gives us a pop hook for 3 PM in the whip and 3 AM in the club. It's a jam about a jam, meta but not overthought for an… » 2/10/15 10:52am 2/10/15 10:52am

Here's Charli XCX's New Single 'Doing It,' Now With Extra Rita Ora

"Doing It" might be my favorite track off Charli XCX's excellent bubble-punk pop album SUCKER, and Charli just released a new version featuring everyone's favorite Who's That Girl, Oh Yeah, It's Rita Ora. Everything's exactly the same as the star-spangled original—I love the tense, sky-high whip of the chorus—except… » 1/08/15 7:45pm 1/08/15 7:45pm
