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.
Chloe and Halle beautifully update Ray Charles’ wistful classic “Georgia On My Mind.”
This is Lana Del Rey’s version of a hymn: a little psychedelic, romantic and freaky.
The “MLK Interlude” aside, the Bieb’s new album Justice has some bops — including this summery and breezy tune with Burna Boy.
The exhilarating, “enough to make you dance outside while walking” ‘80s synth-pop you’ve been waiting for.
The soaring hook on this invigorating tune by pop-punk band of our dreams MM@TA is only overshadowed by the great punk breakdown at the end.
What used to be seen as sign of weakness is now a sign of sexual prowess on this goofy but fun club tune by Tay Money and Flo Milli.
A jazzy rap reverie from Bay Area collective AG Club with saxophones, scatting, and verses about the foibles of love.
Here’s a silky bop featuring Starrah’s distinctive husky vocals for your “cruising downtown at midnight” vibes.
The U.K. band cobbles together a discordant but melodic rock song that channels the same kind of eeriness as (Sandy) Alex G’s “Gretel”.
Lightning Bug’s gorgeous new song starts off as wide-open country, that slowly fizzes into hypnotic and folky shoegaze.
