Hot damn.

We know your favourite part of Friday is waking up and realising that Popbuzz just rounded up the best new music of the week. We love you and we just want you to be happy. Sit back, relax, and let us love you. 


Chromatics//I Can Never Be Myself When You're Around

You know when something is just really good? Like within the first 10 seconds of hearing it you've uttered the words "this is really good". This new Chromatics track is that thing. It's post-adolescent angst thrown against a pretty lush backdrop of instrumentals and synth sounds. The track is powerful and emotive without that element of trying too hard. It works.

You know it's going to be a #blessed week when M.I.A. gifts us with brand new music. She dropped the song over the weekend and served some fresh and familiar M.I.A-style tunes. No word on whether CanSeeCanDo is part of a full release but she did say more music was coming this summer.

The Night VI//Turn Your Light On Me

As far as I'm aware The Night VI have ever done anything short of perfect. Sounding a bit Fleetwood Mac-y (which is always a great place to land, sound wise) and getting in those tight harmonies, this track is best consumed in massive doses. 


Lupe Fiasco//Atomic Misphilosphy 

Lupe hasn't lost an ounce of his signature flow. In his latest track, written partly about the United States nuclear programme, Lupe manages to drop some consciousness onto a pretty accessible release.

NoMBe//California Girls

Very much in the vein of progressive post r&b music made by men with romantic sounding voices, NoMBe has kind of cornered the market on the independent scene. There is something cinematic about "California Girls" and something charming and carefree about it at the same time. 


Tame Impala//Let It Happen
