This week has me feeling existential, like Jim Carrey when he got interviewed on the red carpet at NYFW. Music is a great way to stay grounded, so check out new music from Michael Cera, Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile, Billy Raffoul, Stormzy, Bijan, PoppyBilly Kenny and Børns.

 1. Michael Cera ft. Sharon Van Etten  – “Best I Can”:

Was this song made by the real Michael Cera? You decide.

2. Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile – “Continental Breakfast”:

“I walk like a bruised ego along shorefront property un-owned to me / But I’m feelin’ inferior on the interior don’t ya see / Guarded and sentimental (and after all, its just a rental).”

3. Billy Raffoul – “Dark Four Door”:

The angst is real in this song. I foresee the grunge era reviving.

4. Stormzy  – “Gang Signs And Prayers”:

School yourself on U.K. Grime tings with “Gang Signs & Prayers.”

5. Bjian – “Stay Ready”:

Listen to Bijan’s fresh and fly debut single “Stay Ready.” The shop owner at 1:30 is savage.

6. Poppy ft Charlotte – “My Style”:

Poppy, love her or misunderstand her, she is one of a kind.

7. Billy Kenny – “Trip Report”:

I can’t wait to listen to Billy Kenny’s upcoming album, scheduled to drop September 29th on his label Relief. I’ve seen Billy Kenny a few times and his sets are unlike any other, they sweep you into another galaxy.

8. Børns – “Faded Heart (Acoustic)”:

I wish I was as cool as the kid with the blue hair in the beginning. I am loving this acoustic style of “Faded Heart.”
