New Music Monday picks for December 21, 2015

Your countdown-to-Christmas New Music Monday picks include everyone’s favorite rock ‘n’ roll chameleon, a Vine sensation and Seattle singer-songwriter Damien Jurado.

Roll on, January 8. It’s all about return of David Bowie and ★, his upcoming 25th studio album. “Lazarus” also happens to be the title of his new stage production starring Michael C. Hall, whose recent performance on Stephen Colbert was nothing short of heart-stopping and spectacular.

20-year-old Edmonton, Alberta native Ruth B is poised and ready for world domination with “Lost Boy,” the track that began as a Vine video — and the very track that got her signed to Columbia.

Seattle singer-songwriter Damien Jurado is no stranger to gorgeous melodies and lyrics that take you places in both your head and heart. Check out the first official single from Visions Of Us On The Land, arriving March 18 via Secretly Canadian.
