There is undeniable youthful energy in this week’s new releases. We’re feeling it in the soul-stirring electronic pop movements of St. Lucia and the anthemic quality of Papa, the new band from Girls drummer Darren Weiss. You can hear it in the Southern rock of Tallahassee’s Mayday Parade and in modern acoustics of 17-year-old singer Ryan Beatty. And then there’s Miley. . . and so much more.
Our New Music Weekly playlist will fast forward you into the heart of the best songs that these artists and more have just put out. After you listen, head over to the Rdio New Releases to browse the complete collection of what’s new.
