Pop

Camila Cabello – Shameless

“Shameless” and “Liar” were released on the same day, and are a part of “Romance,” the name of Camila Cabello’s upcoming album. Cabello has had a busy year, contributing with Shawn Mendes and Mark Ronson on hit songs, but these are her first solo work since her 2018 critically acclaimed LP.

Post Malone – Circles

There’s a lot going on here. For starters, it’s always nice to see the side of Post Malone that isn’t singing about money and “beautiful boobies”. “Circles” is a surprisingly affecting earworm about the mess involved in the end of a relationship. Then there’s also the fact that the video is set in medieval times and Post Malone plays the part of a knight. So you get a good song with a big side of ridiculousness, but I guess that’s always been Malone’s M.O.

Indie

Death Cab For Cutie – Blue Bloods

Released along with a live studio video recording, “Blue Bloods” is the headliner for Death Cab’s new EP. The record features the songs that didn’t make it on to last year’s “Thank Your For Today,” the band’s last album. “Blue Bloods” shows off some of what Death Cab does best, indulging a bit with instruments and resulting in a surprisingly affecting experience.
