Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 15 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Vivian Girls, Anna Of The North, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Something To Do" - Vivian Girls

The trio are back with another nostalgia-inducing hit.

"Playing Games" - Anna Of The North

A dreamy, synth-pop gem from this gem.

"To Love a Boy / Stay Open" - Maya Hawke

Maya Hawke is now a double-threat! Two acoustic tracks that showcase the Stranger Things star's smooth voice.

"Be Honest" - Jorja Smith feat. Burna Boy

Of course Jorja Smith would bring us a dance-worthy ode to the men that waste our time.

"Stayaway" - MUNA

Queens of moving on and exuding positivity.

"Highwomen" - The Highwomen

I'm obsessed with this powerful, all-women rewrite of "Highwayman."

"Matsudo City Life" - Sui Zhen

Encapsulating the feeling of drifting in and out of a dream.

Over Night - Tabby Wakes

Hint: "Lady Gaga" is a bop.

"Indigo" - NIKI

I'm the napkin with "Leave Now!" written on it.

"No Muss No Fuss" - Ralph

Serving us a new breakup anthem!

Floor Seats - A$AP Ferg

"Ride" is a laidback look into Ferg's unrequited love.

"Bad Kid" - Baum

Hypnotically, heartbreakingly beautiful.

"Miss You" - Claud

The hurt of wanting someone back turned into a dreamy jam.

"90s Green Screen" - Jean Dawson

I have chills from the chorus to bridge transition.

Ballerina - Raffaella

Sway around your bedroom to "Ballerina."
