I don’t know about you, but musically speaking, to me, August signifies the arrival of Kesha‘s hotly anticipated Aug. 11 comeback album Rainbow.
But while we eagerly await the 14-song selection, let’s get into some recently released tunes, shall we?
Some of my regularly rotating favorites (Foster the People, RAC, DWNTWN) each released new albums within the last couple of weeks and they are so good! I commend FTP for sticking true to their original sound with each new release. Their new album brings so much happiness to my heart—especially the song “Sit Next to Me,” which I’ve included in this month’s new music playlist. In addition, you must check out RAC’s “Unusual” and DWNTWN’s “Love Someone.”
But the song I’m featuring in the forefront this month is indie new wave act Pompeya‘s “Somebody Else,” off their new four-track EP Domino. Anyone who’s been following skyelyfe knows the Moscow natives have been been on my radar for years. I always get excited when they release new material because they’re one of the few acts to never let me down.
I also advise checking out SomeKindaWonderful‘s “Wheels Up,” a bit of a different sounding venture for the alt-rock band, who collabed with Casey Veggies on this mellow hip-hop electro track.
Scroll below to check out the playlist of 27 new tracks worth listening to this month, which also includes Don Diablo, Rhye, Decco, Bryce Vine, Snakehips, Body Language and Grabbitz!
