Kick start the week with three new songs hand-picked for your playlist.

Steve Lacy — “Mercury”

THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

Grammy-nominated guitarist and vocalist Steve Lacy (The Internet) recently dropped his sophomore album “Gemini Rights.” Lacy’s considerable talent as a producer is on full display with the record’s atmospheric lead single “Mercury.” Here, Lacy delicately weaves his vocals through a complex musical arrangement tied to a winsome Brazilian bossa backbeat.


Stella Talpo — “Where Did I Go”

Italian-born and London-based singer Stella Talpo’s new single “Where Did I Go” is a painfully beautiful song. The lyrics in Talpo’s song depict a gut-wrenching story of self-destruction and desperation, amplified by impressive, soulful production. This banger is one of six tracks on her new EP “FINE” which was released in June.


Madison Cunningham — “Hospital”

LA-based folk rock musician Madison Cunningham’s single “Hospital” is an infectious jam with truly unique, off-kilter energy. “Hospital is written from this sort of half awake, slightly drunken, on the cusp of a nervous breakdown perspective,” Cunningham said. “I think ultimately it speaks to the impossible condition of being sedated with information and trying to hold onto your sanity.” Cunningham’s new album “Revealer” is due out on Sept. 9.
