If you listen to the OMG Playlist every month, you already know that we like to bring you the tunes that make you wanna strut, drop it low, shake your ass, etc. With summer around the corner, how could you not get so excited? So, the party continues on but it’s important to also change your pace sometimes.
This month Ethel Cain released her album Preachers Daughter,and we love the dreamy-mysterious picture it paints. As a trans women living in rural Alabama, Ethel tackles themes of Christianity and Americana from a grittier, gloomier, gothic and more queer POV. “American Teenager” is featured in the playlist, but we recommend listening to the album in its entirety when you’re looking for a down-tempo moment.
If you’re the kind of person that likes to drown themselves in sorrow, we’re happy to announce that Lykke Li also dropped her album EYEYE this month. No fun to be had here!!!! Just the beautiful Melody of Lykke’s soft Swedish voice and your emotions. Her song “CAROUSEL” definitely got us in our feelings. Doesn’t it feel so good to feel????
If you’re looking for some angst, then you’ll be pleased to hear Santigold’s new track “High Priestess.” This song combines the spirit of both punk rock and electroclash, with production from Boys Noize—it’s a rager we’ll wanna blast all summer!
Last but not least, we’re very excited for Sky Ferreira new song “Don’t Forget”! Unlike so much of the mediocre ’80s pastiche that’s been trending in pop music these days, Sky puts her own cool spin on it. The melody isn’t linear, the production is deep and distorted, but it comes together so nicely—this song is like crushed velvet! We can’t wait for your new album, Sky!!!!
It never stops there though—this month we have over three hours of variety for you, including new releases from Kim Ann Foxman, BANKS, Florence + the Machine, Carly Rae Jepsen, Hercules & Love Affair, Ravyn Lenae, Sylvan Esso, Tove Lo, Rina Sawayama, and more!
