I’m still on a musical high from Friday night’s Chris Brown concert at Hollywood Palladium. But even if you didn’t have a chance to see adorable baby Royalty hit the stage with her dad at the end of the show, you can still get in the Breezy spirit by checking out his new album (named after his little one), which dropped on Friday.
I personally think the already-released radio tracks from this album are his best of the latest options, but I’ve included his song “Anyway,” featuring Tayla Parx as part of this week’s New Music Monday.
Also in the mix this week are Bag Raiders, J.Cole, Death Team, The Toxic Avenger, Great Good Fine OK, Coyote Kisses, Diiv and Nora en Pure, among many others.
I must point out that up until this week, I was unfamiliar with Retro Culture and P’ARIS, but I’m totally in love with their songs “Cold” and “Focus” (respectively).
Click below for the full list of 25 fresh tracks, and check back tomorrow to get my list of songs perfectly fitting for the chill of winter!
Carly Rae Jepsen is on a roll!
Her new releases continue to be totally on point, as she proves with last month’s “Run Away with Me,” and now her latest, “Warm Blood,” which is a little dark and mysterious while still providing one of her catchy signature hooks. It’s the perfect kickoff to this week’s New Music Monday selection. Her latest are set to appear on her third studio album “Emotion.”
And while on the subject of pop, check out the DJ Mustard-produced “Sorry to Interrupt,” by Jessie J, Jhene Aiko and Rixton. RAC and Madi Diaz‘s happy-go-lucky “Falling Hard” will make you smile, and Kate Boy‘s “Midnight Sun” will make you dance. And YG‘s “Twist My Fingaz” reminds me of that classic west coast rap sound from the ’90s.
Otherwise, this week’s playlist is mostly mellow. Chet Faker and Banks make an excellent team on their “1998” collaboration, while Teen Daze‘s “Along” is perfect little jam for winding down your day, and Cannons‘ “Body Talk” is slow and sexy.
Check out the entire playlist of 12 songs (which also includes Gardens & Villa, Peking Duk, SAFIA, Coyote Kisses and Karman Line) below:
Seeing my favorite pop star Kesha perform live at L.A. Pride over the weekend was amazing, but for today, it’s time to dig up some new material.
I’m totally loving Gardens & Villa‘s synthpop “Fixation,” Keys N Krates‘ trappy “Save Me,” Coyote Kisses‘ indie-electro “Ferrari” and indie rock by Family of the Year with “Make You Mine.” And of course I always get excited by new RAC tracks, so be sure to give a listen to “Back of the Car.”

Did it take far too much effort to rummage through the seemingly endless list of Coachella performers to weed out who you want to see live, aside from the obvious (I’m looking at you, Drake, RAC, St. Lucia, Tycho, MØ, Odesza)?
Well, rest assured, I have a good grasp on the acts this year and I’ve got your must-sees covered. From my newer discoveries Alison Wonderland and Coyote Kisses, to some longtime favorites Kaskade and Nero, there is a slew of solid music options between Friday and Sunday for your listening pleasure.
So, whether you’re packing your bags for the big weekend that lies ahead, or you’re getting in your car to head to the festival, sit back, relax, and listen to this playlist of 64 artists worth seeing at Coachella!
