New Music Friday - May 20

This week’s New Music Friday features new album releases from Harry Styles, Everything Everything, Flume, Lykke Li, and Train. Enjoy!

“Music For a Sushi Restaurant” Harry Styles

Album: Harry’s House


“He’s pulled off the neat trick of making his music at once elegant and more refined but also warmer and more intimate — the polished-marble smoothness of Steely Dan with the generosity of an Al Green or Yo La Tengo record.”
Rolling Stone

“Jennifer” by Everything Everything

Album: Raw Data Feel


“To come up with the lyrics for the new record, (Jonathan) Hogg created an A.I. bot and fed it with random information – the terms and conditions of LinkedIn, posts on 4Chan, Chinese philosophy and more – and worked with what it spat out. In a statement accompanying the release, he loftily claims that this way of working will ‘revolutionize modern pop music’.”

“Hollow” by Flume feat. Emma Louise

Album: Palaces


“While some of the more Top 40-driven tracks risk getting lost in the mammoth-like production value of his imaginative, left-field hyper pop tracks, the sum of the album is beautiful, intended to be enjoyed by both faithful Flume stans and new listeners drawn to the beauty of a cacophonous, glitched-out style popularised by super-producers like SOPHIE, Danny Harle, and more.“
Clash Music

“Over” by Lykke Li

Album: Eyeye


“Well, good news for lovers of sad sounds: Lykke Li is back on downtempo vibes. Not only that, but she’s working again with Björn Yttling – the Peter Bjorn And John member who previously leant his Scandi-pop Midas touch to her first three albums. That’s not to say it’s a pastiche of former miseries, though. This time, it’s lo-fi and out there.“

“Singing Alone” by Train

Album: AM Gold


“It has to start with love—love that goes into work comes out of work,” says Train frontman Pat Monahan. “We love this song, this album, and our fans.” Picking up long after where Train left off with A Girl, a Bottle, a Boat in 2017, the band’s upcoming 11th album, AM Gold, out May 20, is a throwback to the AM 1960s and ‘70s radio rock and new influences and concentrated on self-love“
