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.
Just when you think pop songwriting whiz Julia Michaels has tapped the bottom of her well, she emerges with the bold “Sorry To Me Too,” a breakbeat, break-up collage that unearths yet another side to her artistry. (YouTube)
Kim Petras sounds the best she has in a while on her maybe blasphemous but definitely deep new single, probing what the artistically inclined consider to be religion. (YouTube)
A dating tip from GloRilla: “First date, meet me at the mall since he say he boss enough (Okay)/ And I'ma put that n*gga back if he say it cost too much.” (YouTube)
The sun sets before 5 p.m. now so consider another glittering banger, this time from The Blessed Madonna featuring Uffie interpolating Suzanne Vega’s “Tom Diner.” (YouTube)
As part of Bright Eyes’ ongoing effort to reissue all their past albums with companion EPs, the band shared a spirited cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Fare Thee Well, Miss Carousel.” (YouTube)
