New Music Monday picks – September 21, 2015

Got your smattering of New Music Monday happiness right here:


Acquaint yourself with “Bros,” the latest single from North London’s newest kings and queens of heavy, Wolf Alice. And don’t miss ’em when they roll back through Dallas, playing Trees on Sunday, October 18.

Dallas-based James Corcoran moonlights as Gaston Light and delivers one of the most melodically and lyrically stunning stand-alone singles we’ve heard for quite some time – “Make Up Your Mind.” Available via Idol Records.

When we first got word that Ryan Adams was doing a track-by-track cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989, we had to pause for a moment while waiting for the punch line. But here’s his rendition of “Bad Blood,” in all its stripped-down glory. Duck and cover, because the album lands digitally today.

You can catch Chicago’s brother-sister duo Wild Belle opening for Django Django at the Granada on October 27th, and savor this synth-tastic gem called “Giving Up On You,” from their forthcoming January release, Dream Land.

Happy New Music Monday, y’all.
