It’s been another great week in music as we round up the very best new songs on the New Music Experience.
Northampton, UK rapper Slowthai brings the uplifting punk energy with “Feel Good,” Asheville’s Indigo De Souza returns with “Younger & Dumber,” we preview Andy Shauf‘s upcoming Nashville show by playing a favorite track from his brand new album, Norm, Bartees Strange pens another fantastically written song with “Tisched Off,” and our new finds Coach Party, an English four-piece, who, like Wet Leg, hail from the Isle of Wight, channels their angst with the infectious new track, “Micro Aggression.”
Justin Barney gets Yo La Tengo to break down the meaning behind their new song, “Sinatra Drive Breakdown,” and Hayley Williams tells the story of how Nashville and Taylor Swift influenced the writing of “Running Out of Time” from Paramore‘s brand new album, This Is Why.
Our Song of the Week is a wavy, classic soul groove from Nashville artist Devon Gilfillian, introduced by the man himself, and our Record of the Week is Asking For a Ride from the Louisville, Kentucky garage-punk band, White Reaper.
