Tick, tick, tick, boom

Nothing in the world can touch Southern California's Joshua Tree. It's got desert terrain akin to some distant planet in a galaxy far, far away. It's the perfect escape. The great contrasts of life and death, light and darkness, togetherness and brokenness run free under its big sky, making it an idyllic (and oft-used) location for some of your favorite music videos.

In Post Precious' case, Joshua Tree is a place of separation, rebirth, and reacquainting. They bring their debut single, "Timebomb," to life in the desert through Sammi Farber's choreography, under the vision of director Julian Buchan, art director Liam Moore, and DP Patrick Jones. "'Timebomb' is essentially about breaking away from an irreparably fucked-up relationship," the duo, made up of Alex Winston and MS MR’s Max Hershenow, tells us. Such an idea informed Farber's push-and-pull choreography. Winston and Hershenow fold and unfold into one another, contrasting the "severe beauty of the desert" in all its relative stillness. They personify the thrill of the great escape, the fear of it all and the ultimate comfort in its subsequent resolve.

Watch "Timebomb," exclusively premiering here, below.

This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video)

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.


"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
