New Music Friday - May 15, 2020

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

ALMA - Have U Seen Her?

This is the debut album from this Finnish singer who started her career on the country's version of Idol, where she finished fifth. She spent the past couple of years working with fellow Nords MØ and Tove Lo, as well as Charli XCX and Miley Cyrus.

Watch: "Have U Seen Her?"
Watch: "LA Money"

The Magnetic Fields - Quickies

This new album from The Magnetic Fields follows 2017's 50 Song Memoir. Their albums usually have some interesting concept to them, and this is no different. As the title suggests, the album is made up of super-short songs, none longer than two minutes 35 seconds.

Watch: "Kraftwerk in a Blackout"
Watch: "I’ve Got a Date with Jesus"

Moses Sumney - græ

This seems to be the year of releasing albums in pieces. Hayley Williams released half of her debut album several months before the full release, and Moses Sumney has done something similar for his follow up to 2017's Aromanticism. The first half of græ was released February. Now, we get the full release of the beautiful new record.

Watch: "and so I come to isolation"
Watch: "Bystanders"

Perfume Genius - Set My Heart on Fire Immediately

Perfume Genius has steadily released one incredible album after another. His latest may be his best, receiving the highest average ratings for his career. Inspiration for the album came out of Mike Hadreas' 2019 dance collaboration with Kate Wallich.

Watch: "Describe"
Watch: "On the Floor"

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - Temple

To introduce their fifth album, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down set the standard for great quarantine music videos. I know that I've mentioned the "Phenom" video before, but it is just such a great show of creativity in our new reality.
