This week’s New Music Weekly playlist is a super lively one, and we’ve been practicing our dance moves with the help of the Step Up: All In Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and some hip-shaking retro tunes from Elvis Presley. We have also been getting loud with the latest long player from Florida rockers New Found Glory, basking in the cool weirdness from UK singer FKA twigs and taking in the soothing tones of a new single from “Same Love” singer Mary Lambert. For more on the best tunes of the week, press play and check out the Playlist Notes below.
Spoon - They Want My Soul
The indie rockers’ eighth album is the first for their new record label Loma Vista Recordings, a bright recharge after taking a few years off that can be heard through the joy of clever lyrics, raw melodies and wonderfully loud walls of sound.
Godsmack - 1000hp
The Seattle metal gods sought an even rawer sound for their first album in four years, created in their brand new recording studio.
Nicki Minaj - “Anaconda”
A sassy single freaked over samples from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” provides a taste of Nicki’s next album The Pink Print.
Twin Peaks - Wild Onion
The Chicago act’s second album bears audible influence from big name legends like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Beach Boys.
Arkells - High Noon
The multiple Juno Award-winning rockers deliver power pop choruses and big room sounds on their third album.
