Check Out This Week’s Best Sounding New Music Releases!

It’s time to check out some of the best new music releases! We have a great mix of artists from across genres, including pop, hip-hop, R&B, rock, country, and more!

Welcome back to New Music Friday; we pick some of the best new music releases so you can get your audiophile music fix!… As usual, it’s a very eclectic mix (Albums are arranged with more traditional audiophile genres like Jazz and Blues at the top and the non-traditional audiophile stuff towards the bottom). Check out the TIDAL & Qobuz streams below!

The Album Of The Week is “And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow.” from Weyes Blood. The celestial-inspired folk album is her follow-up to the critically acclaimed Titanic Rising. It’s a search for an escape from what she calls “algorithmic control and ideological chaos.” We don’t know what that means, but the album sounds great! Check it out!
