Listen to my weekly top picks from this week in new music, featuring music from Kanye West, Mac Miller, R3HAB, Charli XCX and more. One theme that stuck out to me this week was “comebacks”, as Kanye, Mac Miller, and Pretty Sister came off of release hiatuses to drop major new music. Kanye released his album, “Ye”, Miller released three singles, and Pretty Sister finally got back in the streaming limelight with his new single “Tension”.

In addition to those releases, GoldFish had a track with Ashe’s uncredited vocals, though I was able to deduce and spot-check on Twitter by tagging them, which was cool:

#TGINMF: Best of New Music Friday – 5/25

Listen to my weekly top picks from this week in new music, featuring music from Jonas Blue, HONNE, Rudimental, Griffin Stoller and others.

This week saw a few major album releases, including CHVRCHES’ “Love Is Dead” and Shawn Mendes’ eponymous third album, as well as Pusha T’s “Daytona”. I was once again disappointed in Spotify’s actual “New Music Friday” playlist, as it seems to get more commercialized and less thoughtful by the week. I understand that commercial influences will certainly play a role, since they want to highlight music that’s going to get the most plays, regardless of merit. But I would hope that their content officers would police the decisioning a bit more to make NMF what it used to be – the playlist of well-listened tastemakers who were out to share groundbreaking music and new artists. Alas, that’s what I’m here for – to find the stuff they can’t, or don’t.

Enjoy and let me know which ones you really enjoy and have added to your personal collections!
