Houston sensation Monaleo is all confidence and big talk on “Wig Splitter,” the video for which also features her, endearingly, heavily pregnant.

“666” - Anna Shoemaker

The lyrics of Anna Shoemaker’s gothy “666” might require some deciphering, but her haunting appeal is immediate.

Julian Casablancas’ The Voidz are back with their first single since 2018: a wavy, gritty psychedelic rock escapade about snakes and aging wizards.

Think chamber music and medieval happenings when you click play on Anjimile’s tremendous and ominous epic, “The King.”

“7*” - dba James

“I’m 7 different people before I leave the house,” croons NYC’s magnetic dba James, delivering the most relatable lyric of the year.

“Set The Roof” - Hudson Mohawke, Nikki Nair, Tayla Parx

I better hear this fire flames dance collage from Hudson Mowake and Nikki Nair at every NYC rooftop function this summer.

“Mentiras” - Mariposa

Fluttery, breezy trap pop that’s as delicate and enrapturing as Colombian rapper Mariposa’s namesake.

Allegra Krieger’s meandering, folky music sounds like the ink from her pen is still drying as she sings.

“idontlisten” - 3l3d3p

“No I don’t listen to what they say,” monotonously raps L.A.’s 3l3d3p, a life motto that extends to her hyperkinetic, break-the-rules sound.
