Soundcheck: The 10 Best Music Releases The Week Of November 1, 2021


Every week, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK — your destination for the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's roundup features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists.

“Eat It” - Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion demands her own pleasure to an admirable and kinda hilarious degree — “Eat it, eat it, eat it ‘till I faint,” she raps — on this fun, upbeat cut from her new package of B-sides.

300 Records/1501 Certified Entertainment

“She Knows It” - Maggie Lindemann

Maggie Lindemann, pop-punk czarina, sings about pining after a girl with a boyfriend, which feels refreshing given the guy-dominated genre.


“Tarantula” - Azealia Banks

Rumor has it that this pulsing dark club track by Azealia Banks is sung from the viewpoint of a tarantula sent to terrorize, and potentially poison, Grimes and Elon Musk.

“Ice Baby” - Flo Milli

We now aspire to be Flo Milli on her chilly new track “Ice Baby”: “That little budget won’t make me move/ I’m too rich to lose my cool.”


“Cleo” - Shygirl

It’s a delicious bit of euphoria when the beat kicks in on British DJ and musician Shygirl’s most ornate track yet, “Cleo.”

Because Music Ltd.

“Doesn’t Matter” - BENEE

This weightless, mellow offering from BENEE is also one of her most intimate, as she wonders with a sigh on the gentle track, “If I medicate would it help me/ Cause I’m hurting, I feel unwell.”

Republic Records

“The Greatest” - Sasami

Los Angeles’ Sasami unveiled her first single from her next album, and it’s an electrifying rock opera about how the greatest loves stem directly from our fantasies.


“☆ (feat. Oklou)” - Namasenda

This ephemeral-feeling track by PC Music’s Namasenda sounds like an algorithmic, AI approximation of a pop hit, with a glorious Britney Spears “Lucky” interpolation inclusion to boot.

“Oxygen” - Beach Bunny

Beach Bunny has proven themselves to be a band that can keep the steam blowing beyond a hit on TikTok; their latest spritely single, “Oxygen,” is sticky in all the right ways.

Mom + Pop

“Exploding House” - Geese

The latest band to capture the music industry’s attention is Geese, the buzzy Brooklyn quintet that’s weaving compelling arcs of hazy punk/prog rock.
