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:
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!
This is an electronic music lover’s week!
Since releasing “Satisfy” almost a year ago, Nero has been relatively quiet. But the British dubstep trio is back with “The Thrill,” which is made up of their signature heavy, dark, electro sound. This is just one of 15 songs that make up this week’s New Music Monday.
Going off of that, Zeds Dead and Oliver Heldens teamed up for a melodic EDM track called “You Know,” while Crooked Colours brings you “Another Way,” an additional song I am totally into right now.
Also in the electro category (but much more upbeat) is Me & My Toothbrush‘s “On the Wall (Radio Mix).” I just discovered this act, and I was instantly smitten with their lively disco sound. I also totally love Hamilton and Hedvig‘s incredibly easy-on-the-ear “Courage (Deep Remix).”
On the completely opposite side of the sound spectrum, Christine and the Queens bring you “Saint Claude,” a mellow little tune sung in part English and part French.
Also on the playlist is Jess Glynne‘s “Hold My Hand,” Kero Kero Bonito‘s “Picture This,” Ghost Loft‘s “Overflow,” melodic bliss in Elizabeth Rose‘s “Another Earth” and a pretty dope hip-hop mashup “Old Thing Back” by Matoma, featuring classic tracks by Notorious B.I.G. and Ja Rule.
