Half Waif - Frost Burn 2:51
Nandi Rose Plunkett penned “Frost Burn” on a writer’s retreat in picturesque Western Massachusetts, an idyllic backdrop she sought out after feeling stifled by life in Brooklyn. In seeking escape from her familiar settings in the pursuit of peace, she mirrored the logic that inspires one of the most dependably abject human patterns: to fool yourself into fits of faux self-realization, arising from the declaration of an arbitrary turning point — the moment from which things will get better, starting now. You’ll quit that job, leave that relationship, reach the end of the hour, and you expect to suddenly start again renewed, detached from the shackles of your past, specifically from whatever it was that was so unnecessarily holding you back just beyond that self-imposed discontinuity point. Then you take a deep breath, cross your fingers, and anxiously wait to be proven wrong — for the kindling of doubt you couldn’t completely smother to inevitably ignite into an unsettled submission...

Thundercat - Show You the Way [ft. Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins] 3:34
After the release of his 2015 breakthrough, The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam, Thundercat kept himself very busy the following year, with appearances on Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered., features on previously unreleased Flying Lotus tracks, and the release of sprightly single “Bus in These Streets” at the end of summer. The effervescence of that song has spilled over into the new year, manifesting itself on his latest effort, “Show You the Way,” from forthcoming album Drunk. The track is an expression of love and light that finds him trading verses with a pair of unexpected, yet completely logical co-conspirators: yacht rock maestros Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald...

Singas Project - Time Square Jam 4:59
You can hear effects and elements of break'n bossa, acid jazz, swing, trip-hop and folk from us, packed into an unfizzy conception. We are impressed by jazz, electronic, contemporary and world music, literature, and movie-art. Our aim is to mix the traditions and the new experiment of music, and make connections with the contemporary arts. We usually use projections, films in our concerts. Its a frequent occurrence, that the music and the vision are equal, so they can create a new meaning.

Jens Lekman - Evening Prayer 4:15
Later this month, Swedish indie-pop mastermind Jens Lekman is releasing Life Will See You Now, his first official album since 2012’s I Know What Love Isn’t. We’ve already heard lead single “What’s That Perfume You Wear?,” and now he’s premiered another new one on NPR. “Evening Prayer” is an upbeat disco-tinged number about a guy who prints a 3D model of a tumor removed from his body. “The idea of printing out something that’s as scary as a tumor into its concrete form was something that spoke to me,” Lekman explains. “There is something very liberating about that idea. I think a lot of my anxieties and fears are things that are very abstract. Of the times that I’ve been able to overcome a fear, it’s been by making it something that I can understand, that I can hold on to — just something that’s more tangible.”

Sam Patch - Listening 4:07
Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury will release a solo album under the moniker Sam Patch later this month. Yeah You, And I is out 2/17 by way of Dep Records, and we’ve already heard its first single “St. Sebastian.” Sam Patch’s latest, “Listening,” is available...

Snail Mail - Thinning 3:19
“Haven’t felt right in a week,” sings Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan, “and I’m thinning out.” Although “Thinning” was written during a listless time in suburban Maryland, it feels relatable right now: Jordan could easily be singing about the palpable anxiety of last week’s alarming political headlines. Her voice sounds like it’s coming from a distance, perfect for a song with lines about wanting to lie face down on the floor for a whole year and the triumph of “wasting time.” “Thinning” recalls the suburban malaise of 2010 Best Coast with the darkness of Siamese Twins: lo-fi dream-pop/garage, flat affect carried by fuzzy guitars, indie-pop melodies. For a song written from a place of being sick and bored, “Thinning” feels lush, like the momentary satisfaction of crawling back into bed when the outside world is too much.

Singas Project - Colour from Mars 4:41

The Magnetic Fields - ’83 Foxx And I 2:43
“’83 Foxx And I” comes in around the late teens mark in the narrative of the 50 Song Memoir, Stephin Merritt’s autobiographical year-by-year account of his own life. It’s an intense period of self-discovery and transformation, and on this track Merritt pays tribute to John Foxx, the original leader of British new wave band Ultravox. He makes it sound like they’re just two buds hanging out, taking on life side by side, and in his warped dribble, he speaks with the adulation and congenial familiarity that comes with being young and impressionable. “I can’t wait to be sixteen,” Merritt sings yearningly before the song jumps ahead in time to a scene “years later at my DJ night,” and the meaning snaps into focus. It’s about how a musician can lead us through different periods of our life, always reminding us of who we were when we first discovered them. And when we put them on years later, it’s like conversing with an old friend.

Amber Arcades - It Changes 3:33
In the interim since Fading Lines, her excellent debut album as Amber Arcades, all we’ve heard from Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf is a sunny and spectacular Nick Drake reinvention. Today she’s back to her own material with “It Changes,” the lead single from a forthcoming EP to be named. It blooms from a Stones-inspired bedrock into a swirling, immensely satisfying ’90s alt-rock throwback in the Speedy Ortiz mode.

Father John Misty - Ballad of the Dying Man 4:50
Joshua Tillman’s “Ballad of the Dying Man” is tragic. On the new Pure Comedy song, Tillman’s Father John Misty persona takes on a pathetic character: the Dying Man, a sneering critic and cultural connoisseur. And much like his Father John Misty guise, the Dying Man actively courts your revulsion...
