    by · February 17, 2018

    Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your new destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week’s round features 13 of our favorite emerging and established artists including SOPHIE, Tinashe, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

    "Faceshopping" - SOPHIE

    It's here! The aural assault that is "Faceshopping," SOPHIE's latest masterpiece. Life in plastic is truly, terrifically fantastic.

    "Faded Love (feat. Future)" - Tinashe

    Ladies, we have another certified BOP on our hands!

    "Man Down (feat. AlunaGeorge)" - Shakka

    This new tropical tune from Shakka and AlunaGeorge will help get you in the mood for the spring in no time. 

    "Honey Dew" - LION BABE

    For your sensual listening pleasure, here's a smooth AF LION BABE song. Everybody does want a piece of honey dew, honey.

    "I Don't Want U Back" - BØRNS

    BØRNS says he doesn't want us back in his '80s-tinged visual, but his actions say otherwise. Prepare to swoon. 

    "Vincent" - Ellie Goulding

    Apparently, covering Don McLean's "Vincent" is the thing to do these days. James Blake did it last month and now Ellie Goulding's on that tip. It's honestly refreshing to hear her singing again.

    "King's Dead" - Kendrick Lamar, Future, James Blake, and Jay Rock

    The Black Panther doesn't make an appearance in this cool new visual, but we do get to see Lamar high up in a tree, munching on some elote, which was good enough for us. 

    "Death Is In The Air" - Sakima 

    The ironic thing about Sakima's latest is that, despite the title, this song gives you life.

    "Your Tempo" - Kasbo 

    Kasbo's debut album, Places We Don’t Know, is coming and "Your Tempo" is the latest taste. Here's your summery vibe for wintry nights.

    "i need u here (cortado)" - anton. feat Folly Rae

    You know what the world needs more of? No, not cowbell—steelpan. And anton. is giving it to ya with "i need you here (cortado)."

    "French Girls" - Swimming With Bears

    The allure of the French Girl is forever. Swimming With Bears knows this and turned it into a glistening alt. rock anthem. Oh la la, indeed.

    "I Did It!" - KITTEN

    What did KITTEN do? It! The first single off their forthcoming sophomore album straight-up rocks.

    Brave - Allertz

    A lil' sonic inspiration for you to grab this long weekend by the horns and be, well, brave, care of newcomer Allertz.
