10 Best Songs of the Week: Madeline Kenney, Campdogzz, John Grant, Suede, and More

Plus The Lemon Twigs, Christine and the Queens, Phantastic Ferniture, and a Wrap-up of the Week's Other Notable New Tracks

Jul 13, 2018

Hello again. We haven't done a Songs of the Week for almost five weeks, since June 9. We were on vacation from mid to late June and then when we returned there really weren't enough compelling songs last week to justify doing Songs of the Week lists, mainly because of the July 4th holiday being smack dab in the middle of the week and so labels mainly avoided sharing new songs.

Damon Albarn's Gorillaz released a new album, The Now Now, last month via Warner Bros. Now they have shared a pair of remixes for the album's first single, "Humility," via videos for each remix. DJ Koze's version is a more standard remix and the video just features a warped version of the album's artwork. The remix by Superorganism, however, is more radical, with that band's singer Orono Noguchi contributing new vocals and appearing in a remixed version of the song's video. More

Feb 23, 2018

It was a crazy good week for new songs. So much so that we could only narrow down this week's Songs of the Week to 12 tracks, as opposed to our normal 10. Speedy Ortiz almost made the list with "Lucky 88," the first single off their newly announced new album Twerp Verse, but then it would've been 13 songs and we gave into superstition.  More

Interviews

Jun 20, 2018

On record, Orono Noguchi sounds so nonchalant that she almost seems bored of being in a band. In person, she's nothing like that. We're speaking in the middle of Superorganism's first European tour and a packed day for Orono, the band's lead singer, which has included a morning recording session, but she's still animated and engaging.  More

Mar 20, 2018

With their membership spread across multiple continents, it makes sense that Superorganism would draw from a wide range of influences. Their sound is every bit a brightly-colored collage as their video aesthetic: a blend of modern meme imagery and Windows 95-era nostalgia.  More
