Hey you. Yeah, you. You look like you could use some new tunes. Luckily, we’ve got eight stellar tracks to improve your weekend. Read the mini reviews, and then dive right into the songs!
Sparks – “So May We Start” (feat. Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, Simon Helberg)
This song is from the soundtrack to Annette, a film based on the story of Sparks and featuring their music. “So May We Start” includes vocal performances by film leads Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg. Check it out!
Andrea Ramolo – “Dust”
Gunning for the next James Bond theme song (not actually, but it sure has that sultry, badass feel to it), Andrea Ramolo’s new track is an absolute gem. Give it a listen, you’re sure to be hooked.
Clay J Gladstone – “People Like You”
Once the energy hits in this one, it’s insanely infectious. Loving this new track from Sydney, Australia’s Clay J. Gladstone. The video is a fun one as well, put it on and and get ready to dance.
José Junior – “Forever”
Produced by Bombay Bicycle Club’s Ed Nash, “Forever” is a nod to the Britpop and neo-psych scene that the artist grew up with. A great alt-rock song, & it’ll have you singing along right away.
YOUNGTONES – “Don’t Let Me Down”
A lovely soulful Americana song from retro-pop singer songwriter Luke Wade, known as YOUNGTONES. This gorgeous song features a chorus of “hopeful voices and lush string arrangements reminiscent of the cinematic soul of the late 70s.”
Eric Zayne – “Reckless”
We’ve got a serious pop-rock anthem for the summer here. It’s a bit different than what we tend to feature, but it was just so infectious and easy to like, it had to be shared. Turn it up!
Dave Monks – “Wild Like Me”
Were you in the mood for something new from Dave Monks? Of course you were! Well, here it is – the latest single, “Wild Like Me”. This one is a teaser for his upcoming solo album, to be released on his new label Ghost Pepper Records. Have a listen, then go read our interview from this past spring.
Cigar Club – “COLD”
This is an absolutely killer rock tune – if you like QOTSA mixed with some Black Keys and 90s grunge for good measure, this one’s for you. The latest track from the Toronto four-piece features “blistering guitar bends, bombastic drum fills, smooth bass, and vocals that echo The Stooges’ early work.”
