#10 “It's Just A Bit of Blood” – bdrmm

Shoegaze is back on the rise and bdrmm is a big reason why! With Thom Yorke-esque vocals over a blend of gentle dream pop and a driving wall of sound, we're pretty excited about "It's Just A Bit Of Blood." I Don’t Know is out 6/30 via Rock Action. And just so you don't have to ask, it's pronounced "bedroom."

#9 “Welcome To My Island” – Caroline Polachek

It's been almost 2 weeks since Caroline Polachek's new record Desire, I Want To Turn Into You released, and we are still completely in awe of her work! "Welcome To My Island" really knows how to introduce the album, setting the stage for what's to come. It's Caroline's island, we do like it and we ain't leavin!

#8 “Younger And Dumber” – Indigo De Souza

Talk about songs that give you chills! Indigo De Souza's Younger & Dumber is a look back at the moments that shaped them into who they are today, the highs and the lows. Make sure to watch the music video, consisting of home video, as well as more recent shots of De Souza dancing in the very specific way that they only do when they're on magic mushrooms (which were admittedly taken just before the shoot).

#7 “Tisched Off” – Bartees Strange

Sometimes a song knows exactly where it wants to be and this week that's Bartees Strange's Tisched Off, which is staying at #7 for the second week in a row. One of two new singles for Sub Pop's Singles Series, Strange continues to prove that they're an artist on the rise!

#6 “Mourning Dove” – Screaming Females

You love to see some synchronicity! This is the first time Screaming Females have made it to our charts and their first proper record in 4 years is out today! Make sure to rock out to Mourning Dove and Marissa Paternoster’s distinctive vocals.

#5 “Find It” – Bass Drum of Death

Jumping up to #5, we've got Bass Drum of Death with an incredibly lively and energetic track from their new record Say I Won't. "Find It" is a cynical look at where lead singer John Barrett was at in their life while living in NYC and constantly partying.

#4 “CSI: Petralona” – Westerman

The much-anticipated (especially for Nils) follow up to Westerman's 2020 debut Your Hero Is Not Dead is finally on its way! This London-born musician now based in Athens, Greece, collaborated with a ton of talented musicians in Los Angeles for this record, including none other than Big Thief's James Krivchenia, who helped produce it. CSI: Petralona is about a strange day Westerman had in Greece when they were scoping it out to see if they wanted to move there. An Inbuilt Fault is out 5/5 via Partisan Records.

#3 “Layla” – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The resident New Zealandars of Portland, OR, known as Unknown Mortal Orchestra are back to bring the world more chilled-out psychedelic grooves. They've been teasing this one for a while now and the album announcement comes alongside one of the newest singles, Layla. This album was created during Nielson's recent travels back and forth from New Zealand, Portland and Hawaii. V will be out 3/17 via Jagjaguwar.

#2 “Party” – Daughter

The 7-year wait is nearly over because British folk-trio Daughter is putting out their first proper LP since 2016's Not To Disappear. Lead singer Elena Tonra got sober in the time between their last record and now, which she references here in "Party." Stereo Mind Game is out 4/7 on 4AD/Glassnote.

#1 “Every Little Heart” – The Tallest Man On Earth

The Tallest Man On Earth stands even taller today, knowing he claimed the coveted #1 spot of the most played songs on Inhailer this week! This is the first track from his upcoming album, which was produced by Sylvan Esso's Nick Sanborn. Henry St. is out 4/14 via ANTI-.

That's it for this week's top 10. There may only be ten, but if you want more, we'll see you again this Friday for the next A List!

The sound is fine, so dip a toe or dive right in and have fun surfing the airwaves.
