Tunesday Adds: The Avalanches, Low Cut Connie & More

Every week, RPM updates Tunesday, our new global music playlist. Check out this week’s adds below!

This week’s Tunesday adds are headlined by a couple of dazzlers hot off the presses. Philadelphia classic rock revivalist Low Cut Connie gave us a taste of their upcoming album, Private Lives, with new single “Help Me.” LCC tore it up at SXSW last year, and we can’t wait to see them live once gigs return again…whenever that is.

We’ve ALSO got a new album coming from The Avalanches in December, called We Will Always Love You. The Aussie turntablists made the announcement by dropping two new tracks, including “Take Care in Your Dreaming.” It features an all-star cadre of collaborators including South Florida rapper Denzel Curry, Zambian-Australian rapper and RPM favorite Sampa the Great, and legendary UK producer Tricky for a team more loaded than a plate of nachos.

We’re highlighting a couple of Ghana’s most exciting new artists as well. Rapper Wendy Shay gives us the playful banger “H.I.T. (Haters in Tears),” a defiant, tongue in cheek bop featuring countryman Shatta Wale. Plus, a recent track from Ghanaian RnB royalty, King Promise that’s a major addition to any Friday night playlist…or a Tuesday one for that matter!

“Motorcycle, No Motor” is a recent discovery from Nashville-based emo rockers Free Throw, and honestly, we think it’s a little more than okay. That’ll bleed into the new one from Edinburgh heatseekers Vistas, who fans of Japandroids, Gang of Youths, and similar bands should check out. Rounding out the U.S. contingent is “Drain Me,” a ’90s rock-inspired bop from LA-based punk outfit Model Child that we think would be right at home on the new NHL video game soundtrack.

Over to Central America, we’ve got a track from Guatemalan indie pop singer Tita, which gives us shades of The Cardigans or Garbage. If you prefer a darker tinge, try “Whatever Happens Next,” a brooding, synth-laden protest song from Belorussian artist Dlina Volny. Or if you’re feeling more triumphant, try this on for size: “Dancing in the Rain” from Townsville, QLD native Woodes, one of the top vocal talents in Australia whose upcoming debut LP also comes with its own custom Minecraft world. Pretty cool, hey?
