New Music Monday: Sage the Gemini, Cazzette, Late Night Alumni & 25 More Artists!

June 8, 2015

Sage-the-gemini-NMMRapper Sage the Gemini enlisted the help of Nick Jonas‘s vocals to take things down a notch on the R&B-influenced “Good Thing.” The collaboration works impressively, making this track one of my favorite to kick off this week’s New Music Monday.

And speaking of mellow tracks, Late Night Alumni‘s “Another Word for Love” follows in their signature dreamy, downtempo sound.

Cazzette gets the party started with “Together,” TJH87 takes you on a fun little nu-disco adventure with “Lost Into the Night,” Wynter Gordon brings some stellar pop vocals with “World on Fire” and Bonnie McKee released one heck of an ’80s fitness throwback video with “Bombastic.”

Click on the playlist below for 27 new songs, also including tracks by Lincoln Jesser, Flume, Major Lazer, Tear Council, Karmin and Lolawolf:

Alison Wonderland, Gorgon City, Avan Lava & More: New Music Monday, 4.6.15

April 6, 2015

alison-wonderlandWoooo, it’s the kickoff to the week of Coachella weekend one, and today’s featured New Music Monday artist is none other than festival performer Alison Wonderland, whose stage name is as legit as her fashion sense. The Aussie DJ/producer’s latest track “Run” is fab and sums up the exact sound I want to hear as I frolic through the field in the next few days.

Following in the Coachella theme, I am also a big fan of fellow festival duo Gorgon City‘s new song “Imagination,” featuring Katy Menditta on vocals.

Additionally on my radar this week is one of last month’s SXSW acts Avan Lava, a regular favorite on this site. The Brooklyn-based indie-pop trio just released their long-awaited Make It Real EP, and “Take This City” is my favorite from the six-song selection.

Also on this week’s list are additional site repeaters Death Cab for Cutie, Late Night Alumni, Ookay and The Erised. But I had to be sure not to leave out Robin Schulz, Evan Voytas, Golden Coast, the Acorn and Boxed in, who also had some stellar new material this week.

Happy listening, and be sure to check back on Wednesday, when I’ll be posting my playlist of Coachella 2015 artists worth seeing at the festival!

passionpitExhausted from Oscar weekend? Luckily, I have plenty of new tunes to help you relax on this post-party Monday!

For the hip-hop lover, Gucci Mane just put out his Brick Factory 3 album and Chris Brown and Tyga released “Bitches N Marijuana” off their brand new collaborative effort, Fan of a Fan the Album

And move over, Taylor Swift! Passion Pit is also giving a little shoutout to one heck of a decade with new song “Lifted Up (1985).”

Continuing in the theme of chill music, one of my longtime favorites, Late Night Alumni, released “This This This,” keeping true to their signature dreamy sound. Kygo also came out with “ID,” Monogem finally released their self-titled EP (I’m digging “The Glow”), Allies for Everyone released “Bunker,” Lord Huron released folky “Fool for Love” and much more!
