New Music Friday featuring Brigitte Calls Me Baby, The Offspring, & more!

Every Friday, Case the Producer rounds up the most exciting new tunes in music and serves them up in one easy-to-find blog for you, the Q101 Crew Members.

beabadoobee: Coming Home

Excellent singer-songwriter beabadoobee is rolling out tracks in anticipation for her new record, This Is How Tomorrow Moves, which is slated to drop in mid-August. “Coming Home” is more of what we’ve come to expect from beabadoobee; soft, ear-worm-pop that promises to stay in your head all day. “Coming Home” is as cute as it is good, and it’s very cute.

beabadoobe makes her way to the Aragon Ballroom on September 17.

Brigitte Calls Me Baby: We Were Never Alive

Buckle up, folks: the summer of Brigitte Calls Me Baby is upon us. My personal pick for the best Chicago band running (with apologies to Friko, Sincere Engineer, and countless others), the crooners are back with the lead single for their debut album, The Future Is Our Way Out, which comes out on August 2. “We Were Never Alive” is one of the many tunes that this band has been playing during their live sets as of late. Steeped in alternative tradition (80’s keyboards, a bass breakdown that would make the late bassist of The Smiths Andy Rourke smile), “We Were Never Alive” continues the trend of BCMB putting their best foot forward. If this is any indication of what’s to come with their first full length record, we’ll have a new Album Of The Year Contender come August.

Catch Brigitte Calls Me Baby at Lollapalooza at the IHG Hotels & Resort Stage on Saturday August 3 at 12:30.

Falling In Reverse & Jelly Roll: All My Life

Grab your Monster Energy and pack a pouch of Zyn: Falling In Reverse has a collaboration with Jelly Roll and that is bound to make a certain type of person extremely happy.

The Offspring: Make It All Right (single) 

The Offspring are back and ready to roll out their eleventh record, Supercharged. The lead single, “Make It All Right”, is a new entry into Offspring’s catalogue that sounds like classic Offspring. Supercharged will be out on October 11.

Pedro the Lion: Santa Cruz 

Indie-rock legend Pedro the Lion is back with his seventh studio album. Santa Cruz is a return to form for Pedro, who weaves brilliant storytelling across heartbreaking indie rock for 11 tracks.
