We listen to New Music Friday releases and pick out the best songs from emerging and established artists so you don’t have to. Dive into our selects below to jump start your weekend.

binki – Heybb!
There’s nothing that hits the spot quite like a song based around a popular millennial greeting from one cutie to another and sounds like Gorillaz.

Blueface, Gunna – First Class
Playing this one on repeat while flying high and leaning back on a first class flight. The second single from LA native Blueface’s upcoming album “Find The Beat.”

Caroline Polachek – Look At Me Now
The last single from Polachek’s very good album “Pang.”

Foals – Like Lightning
For doing donuts on an ATV in the desert or in the cul-de-sac of your suburban neighborhood.

Half Moon Run – Favourite Boy
Half Moon Run channels ’70s indie rock meets electronica vibes on”Favourite Boy,” the second single from their upcoming album “A Blemish in the Great Light.”

Jim-E Stack – Good Enough (feat. Ant Clemons)
A perfect dark pop gem with heartfelt lyrics and it doesn’t hurt to have Danielle Haim getting after it on guitar here.

Josie Dunne, Dahl – Stay The Way I Left You
You don’t want to get back together with your ex but you also want them to still want you. This is a song about that and it CUTS DEEP.

Kate Bollinger – No Other Like You
A fuzzed out lo-fi guitar pop gem.

L Devine – Peachy Keen
Is trap-pop a thing? Perhaps it should be because Le Devine absolutely smashes it.

Lost Kings – Somebody Out There (feat. Marc E. Bassy)
Lost Kings proves they’re much more than EDM with their latest collaboration “Somebody Out There” featuring vocals CeeLo Green songwriter Marc E. Bassy. This one slaps.

Perfume Genius – Pop Song
Atmospheric and gorgeously textured, “Pop Song” isn’t exactly pop and that’s part of what makes it so perfect. Skittering synths dance around Perfume Genius’ falsetto like rain drops.
