#NewMusicFriday is a weekly roundup of my favorite, noteworthy recent releases.

We’re back, baby!

Truth be told, keeping up with all the new music while traveling the world (especially in countries where Spotify or good wifi were non-existent), was tough. And, while I was updating the playlist from time to time, it’s been 6 months since I shared a post about new releases. So here we are. Welcome or welcome back. It’s a good week to get this rolling again. Lots of fun releases this week.

Been waiting two years for some new Vance Joy, so today is a very happy day. Not only did he drop a track, but it’s the first single off his upcoming album and it’s good. Lana Del Rey dropped the first single from her new album as well and it’s a cool genre cross over, featuring A$AP Rocky. All week I’ve been working on and jamming to an unreleased track, which is now featured on NMF Canada; the first track from Bo Talks ft. Sarah Hyland of Modern Family is hella catchy. New albums from Oh Wonder and Mura Masa out today hitting all the right spots. Foster The People continues to release singles from their upcoming album. I’m not sure yet if I like them as much as 2014’s Supermodel, but they’ve definitely still got that noticeable upbeat, indie-pop FTP vibe. Another banger from ODESZA out today featuring the beautiful vocal of Naomi Wild got me even more excited for their fall Montreal show. Lastly, an artist I’ve been working with for some time, but has only recently really been catching my ear outside of the office is RAC. Today, “Heartbreak Summer” featuring K.Flay – who you’ve heard on Louis The Child’s “It’s Strange” – is out and it’s definitely another reason to keep RAC on the radar.

Give ’em a listen, save ’em, follow the playlist (there’s more there!) & let me know your thoughts and new discoveries in the comments down below. Happy listening!
