Every week, there are countless new albums hitting the airwaves — and it’s just too much for your two ears to handle. With all those options, you can’t be wasting your time on music that deserves a thumbs-down click — you want to know what the best new releases are this week, so you’re not missing out on something great.

There’s no need to worry. We listen to the most-hyped and interesting releases each week and tell you which are worthy of your precious listening time. To find our fresh picks, we scour the internet, listening to everything from popular music blogs and user-uploaded platforms like Soundcloud and Bandcamp to exclusive premieres from major labels. We then pick our favorites based on both their style and substance, rather than simply how many views or plays they may have.

This week: Brand-new albums from Kurt Vile, Valley Maker, Broncho, The Dodos, Colter Wall, and Ambrose Akinmusire.

Above, you’ll find our constantly updated playlist with the best new albums and singles to stream in 2018. Speaking of which, if you’re a fan of great new playlists, don’t forget to subscribe to our Spotify page for the playlist of our weekly picks, as well as numerous other exciting musical compilations.

And don’t stop with just the best new music. We’ve also got lists of the best Netflix movies and best Netflix shows to stream, as well as what’s new on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO, providing you with plenty of brand-new media to binge watch, should you get the urge.
