— Lucas Creighton

We bring you every week SOUNDCHECK: Your destination for al best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you always have to be ready when someone passes you the AUX cable. This week's roundup features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists.

“Sexy for someone” – Clairo

As much as we all try to be cool, Clairo knows we just want to feel wanted sometimes. Now, he's turned that emotion into an anthem that feels as easy as strolling through a park.

“Caught” – FLO

FLO perfects the brilliant genre of the “cheeky '90s R&B song about the unfaithful boyfriend.”

“Wayo” – Tekno

Now we call it: This will be the Afrobeats bop at block parties and summer parties this summer.

“How sweet” – NewJeans

Electroclash and K-pop? Somehow, NewJeans makes it work and spins it with their signature sweetness into a cotton candy song of a song about getting out of a toxic relationship.

“gum stick” – Nemahsis

Nemahsis' “pallet of bubblegum” feels like a descendant of the lovely artisanal indie pop (from the Lenkas and Lily Allens) that was huge in the 2010s.

“Rain on your pillow” – DIIV

With a guitar riff that sounds like an omen, DIIV's “Raining On Your Pillow” offers a futile yet urgent commentary on the global industrial war machine.

“Stuck Up” – Romy Mars

Romy Mars, famously Sofia Coppola's daughter, makes her musical debut as a witty bedroom pop songstress who describes bad luck as “the tire waiting for me to drive drunk.”

“You shouldn't do that” – Amyl and the Sniffers

Amyl, of Amyl and the Sniffers, was “in Tokyo showing off my crack” when haters around the world decided to chime in. This is his message to them.

“The Groke” – Okay, Kaya

The slightly out-of-tune recorder whistles in the otherwise funky beat of “The Groke” perfectly encapsulate the charming weirdness of Okay Kaya's pop music.

“My Moon” – Habibi

This is dreamy rock music that will make you feel like a sad but glamorous 60s movie star.
