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!
