The Christmas lights have come down, the new year’s resolutions have likely already been broken. We’re now in the thick of winter, folks—with nothing groundbreaking on the immediate horizon (unless, of course, you’re nominated for a Grammy).
Grammy or not, we luckily all have music to turn to—and while this exact time isn’t exactly known for bringing us the bangers, I’ve managed to dig up some songs worth listening to while we wait for things to pick up again.
Scroll through the playlist below for 24 new tracks by Cheat Codes, Kim Petras, Le Youth, Years & Years, Touch Sensitive, NERO, Tycho and more:
Kick that case of the Monday blues with some new tunes!
I have 40 fresh tracks for you today from a slew of fun favorites, including The Knocks, Flume, Adventure Club, The 1975, Tep No and Lincoln Jesser.
But what I am loving most right now is Cardinox‘s “Into the Night,” Chairlift‘s “Moth to a Flame” and AlunaGeorge‘s “I’m In Control.”
And if you’re a disco house lover like myself, you will be obsessed with Louis La Roche‘s “Don’t Break My Heart.” So good!

I don’t know about you, but everyone around me seems to be getting sick. Even I’m coming down with a case of the sniffles, which only happens to me once a year. That’s why I’m depending on some new music to keep me smiling even during times when I’d prefer spending the entire day in bed.
This week, I have 16 New Music Monday songs, including pop by Justin Bieber (yes, his Purpose LP is pretty awesome – and “Been You” is the one of the most energetic tracks off of the overall mellow album), Hailee Steinfeld (her four-song Haiz EP shares raw emotion with impressive vocals and catchy hooks. I included “Rock Bottom” on the list) and One Direction (their easy-on-the-ear “What a Feeling” is reminiscent of the guitar-heavy, slow pop from the ’80s).
There’s also a bit of of disco-influenced dance tracks and tropical house to share as well. I really love Mutemath‘s “Joy Rides,” along with Cheat Codes‘ “Follow You” and Matoma‘s “Find Love,” featuring Donkeyboy.

And scroll to the very bottom to hear a brand new hip-hop joint “Midnight Love,” from my pal Foster, a Nashville-based artist I interviewed earlier this year. His latest features melodic vocals by Kae Kae.
