Soundcheck: The 15 Best Music Releases Of The Week

Sky Ferreira, Mac Miller, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that's just hit the web, because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week’s roundup features 15 of our favorite emerging and established artists, including Sky Ferreira, Mac Miller, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Voices Carry" - Sky Ferreira (Infant Demo)

Ferreira celebrated getting her SoundCloud account back by releasing this cover of 'Til Tuesday's track.

Swimming - Mac Miller

Miller's latest is full of heartbreak and captures his struggle with mental health, but his lyrics aren't asking for pity—just understanding.

“Too Much” - Zayn feat. Timbaland

Zayn is BACK! He's releasing a new album this year and just shared this sultry new single from the project. Prepare to be dazzled while he croons about his insatiable desire. 

"Out Of My Head" - Chvrches feat. Wednesday Campanella

Chvrches go… anime (no, really) in this new music video for their single “Out Of My Head,” which prominently features Japanese pop group Wednesday Campanella.

"Hunter" - Anna Calvi

Is it just us, or does this song belong on the Twin Peaks soundtrack?

“Girls Like You” - Maroon 5 feat Cardi B (St. Vincent Remix)

Anything St. Vincent touches turns to gold, and her remix of this Maroon 5 single is no different. In her take, Cardi B's verses are brought to the forefront.

“She Was A Dancer” - Millie Turner

Who’s learning this dance with us this weekend?

"Stay Away" - Saint Slumber

This song perfectly captures the feeling of knowing someone is bad for you, but not being able to stay away from them.

"Tie Me Down" - Gryffin feat. Elley Duhé

Being single is alright, but being tied down can be so much better. Duhé sings about wanting to be taken in this catchy dance track.

“Touchscreen” - House Of Feelings feat. Meredith Graves

"Touchscreen" praises phones and the ability to be constantly connected—when everything you could ever want is at your fingertips, you can never be lonely.

“Angels” - Evalyn

This music video transports you to the '70s, but in a good way. 

“Loud” - Silk City feat. Goldlink and Desiigner

Diplo and Mark Ronson's joint group, Silk City, have released their third track together, and it's a ghostly single featuring Goldlink and Desiigner.

Del Mar - Adult Karate

K.C. Maloney is Adult Karate, and his debut album is an honest reflection of his most raw emotions, from his struggle to sobriety to his feelings of paranoia, guilt, and self-doubt.

“All That Love Is” - HALFNOISE

Shot on 16mm film in California, each still from this music video feels like it contains a multitude of creative energy. 

“Oxygen” - JPL

This track is smooth and dreamy, exuding King Krule-esque vibes.
