!! OMG Playlist: November 2021 !!

Every month, our music editor ED curates a special selection of newly released music for the OMG Playlist on Spotify (follow us @omgblog).

OMG, Happy November! With daylight getting shorter, it can be easy to fall into a slump, but we’re back with a curated playlist of our favorite monthly new releases to lift your spirits.

This month, Grimes teamed up with dance music producer Chris Lake to launch her new digital AI girl group “NPC”. If you’re a Grimes fan, you know very well about her fascination with AI! Grimes announced the group members’ names are Oxycontin, Cortisol, Adrenaline, Dopamine, and Tomorrow (LOL).

According to the artist,

“NPC can do all the things humans cannot. NPC will eventually be playable, customizable, and able to cater to each individual listener’s unique desires. Decentralized Popstardom. Made, not Born.”

We’re not really sure what this means, but the first song “Drug from God” is a banger!! Enjoy!

We’re also really excited to hear Alice Glass announce her new album PREY/IV. This is her first album since her departure from Crystal Castles and we’re already into the leading track “Baby Teeth.”

You wouldn’t even recognize the heart-rending lyrics are from how upbeat it sounds! We’re excited for all of the electro-gothic sounds Alice Glass will deliver to us on January 28!

Enjoy over two hours of new tunes on our November playlist, including releases from: Shamir, Sevdaliza, Beyonce, Adele, and many more.

Listen to the full OMG, it’s November 2021 Playlist above or on Spotify!

!! OMG, Kim Petras performs the very-LGBTQ+ ‘Coconuts’ at EMAs in Hungary after passing of hateful anti-LGBTQ+ laws !!

Kimmy was in Hungary where the EMAs were held this year, and performed a super LGBTQ+ rendition of her new single Coconuts after Hungary’s recent passing of laws limiting the “promotion” of sexual, pro-gay, or pro-trans content. As one commenter puts it:

Kim went and sang about her breasts and pegging on stage as a trans woman fully expecting to get arrested.

We love to see it! Check out Kim Petras with Coconuts LIVE after the jump!

!! OMG, new music: TK3K ‘Daytime Lullaby’ !!

“Queer, sincere, and unique” pop singer/songwriter TK3K has released “Daytime Lullaby,” the second single from his EP Gay Nights (coming Spring 2022), which is the product of music he has been writing and producing in his bedroom for twenty years. Yes, that’s right. It’s like the shyest boy at the party is finally ready for his moment in the spotlight, and we’re here for it.“Daytime Lullaby” is an anthem for the day after, capturing that hazy, wistful feeling of walking home from somewhere else after a wild night, or waking up in your own bed a little rough around the edges. It’s a song that celebrates the consequences of a life fully lived. Listen above!

We included TK3K’s first single “Montreal” in our August 2021 playlist, and you can listen to it after the jump.

!! OMG, new music: Scott Hardware ‘Summer’ !!

The new single “Summer” from avant-pop songsmith Scott Hardware is the first from his upcoming album Ballad of a Tryhard, out March 4, 2022.

The song is an expansive, breathless look at memory in all its wonderful unreliability. The new album, co-produced by fellow songwriter Prince Nifty, is sure to feature complex, masterful arrangements and a sound that pushes us at the edges.

Actual summer just ended a minute ago, but Hardware is already waxing nostalgic. In his words:

“I was born in September, and autumn has always been my favourite season. Fall people love to look back and to dwell in the bittersweetness of memory. This song marks a deep dive into my changing thoughts about nostalgia, seeing it change from cozy romanticism to toxic waste.”

Stream or purchase “Summer” on your favorite platform here.

!! OMG, don't miss these !!
