Every week, we’re sent dozens if not hundreds of promotional emails from agents, PR firms, and hopeful artists containing the latest releases from around the world. From the biggest superstars to the ambitious self-starters we comb through it all to highlight to you what we’ve been digging, the tunes that caught our eye, and the recommended selections that make the notifications worth it. This is New Music From The Inbox!
Artist: Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
Song: “Go Get A Tattoo” ft. Lynks
Dirty snarling bass and vocals in this spitting alt-punk grease pit sound right at home on new FC&TR album Sticky. Frantic and driving rhythm on the backline generate a thumping pace for the flowing vocals and blown-out guitars to keep up with.
Artist: T. Evann
Song: “Falling by the Wayside”
Calm and expansionary indie flow reigns supreme in T. Evann’s “Falling by the Wayside”. Dreamy vocals, sinuous nearly to the point of strung out melodic guitar, and a hazy, subtly reverberating production style bring out a relaxing and enveloping tone throughout the track.
Artist: Tony Glausi
Song: “I Could Fall in Love” feat. Charlemagne the Goddess
Album/EP: EVERYTHING AT ONCE
Jazzy and bouncing R&B with a sincere back-and-forth between Glausi and featured Charlemagne the Goddess, “I Could Fall in Love” plays out like a silver screen meet-cute. Ever-so-subtle muted trumpet runs, soft background harmonies, and a constant key feature elicit some extra organic expression.
Artist: DJ Tweak
Song: “Partner In Crime”
Exhilarating and shifting EDM with a particularly catchy melodic through-line across drops and sonic flashpoints, “Partner In Crime” is a perpetually head-bopping tune.
Artist: Japanese Breakfast
Album/EP: Sable Original Video Game Soundtrack
Dreamy and crystalline bedroom pop characteristic of Japanese Breakfast’s previous body of work, “Glider” is an equally accessible and ethereal entry. Looping and layering vocals and gently shifting melodies keep things interesting and swaddled in an envelope of warmth and wonder.
