Each and every week we put together our favorite tracks that had premiered a few days prior into one magnificent mixtape to share with you and your friends. This time around we've decided to share new songs from Lana Del Rey, Netherfriends, The Decemberists, Purity Ring and more right here!
Purity Ring this week premiered a brand new track entitled "Push Pull," reminding us all of just how incredible this electronica duo is. The first original composition from Megan James and Corin Roddick, show off the aspects of this band that we've missed since they released Shrines in 2012. Listen to "Push Pull" right here!
RIYL: Chvrches, Sia
Netherfriends this week, after a few months of social media promotion, has released the brand new single "Short Bangs," featuring Monster Mike. Songwriter Shawn Rosenblatt composes one of the most original love songs in this track, incorporating R&B and Hip-Hop influences throughout. Check out a great music video for this new song right here!
RIYL: Kendrick Lamar, James Blake, Arms
We recently got a taste a new song from The Decembersits in the form of Colin Meloy basking on the streets of Brooklyn, but this week we got a great, full-band lyric video for "Lake Song." Check it out right here:
