The beginning of the new year has turned out to be pretty great in terms of new music, and this past week was no exception. Courtney Barnett released a new single and announced her upcoming solo album for May. Meanwhile, Car Seat Headrest and Born Ruffians had entire full-length records that came out on Friday.
I’ve highlighted multiple tracks from Car Seat Headrest recently, so I’ve gone ahead and skipped adding a track by them this week. However, Born Ruffians and Courtney Barnett are highlighted in this week’s playlist, alongside Sufjan Stevens, Young the Giant, Khalid, and 15 other artists.
