#10 "Show Me How" - Foo Fighters
Kicking off our comeback right with the one and only Foo Fighters. Coming off their latest album, this track showcases the band's relentless energy and undeniable talent. We are absolutely obsessed with the Foo Fighters' ability to captivate us with their raw sound.

#2 "Prophecy of the Dragon" - The Voidz
"The track started with a very simple question… what would it feel like if God whispered into your ear “you are my most magnificent creature”. What would that feeling sound like?" -- The Voidz
Enough said. Welcome to #2!

You may know Blonde Redhead from their very popular song "For the Damaged Coda", but have you checked in to see what they're up to recently? They've been patiently waiting to drop their new album, Sit Down for Dinner, the band's first album in nine years. "Snowman" is the lead single, and the full album will drop on September 29, 2023.
