Happy’s Best New Music

Updated weekly by the fine folk at Happy Mag, this is the absolute best new music that this week has to offer from Australia and around the world!

CARM – Song of Trouble (feat. Sufjan Stevens)

Known for his collaborations with Paul Simon and Taylor Swift, Song of Trouble is the latest slice off CJ Camerieri’s debut release: an eponymous, 10-track EP titled CARMS, featuring Justin Verne of Bon Iver and Shara Nova of My Brightest Diamond.
CJ Camerieri and Sufjan Stevens have teamed up on Song of Trouble, a soft, orchestral ballad that drapes Stevens’ vocals over a melancholic brass and piano riff. A blend of folk and indie rock, the song’s dreamy refrains of “struggle” and “trouble” transforms the process of heartache – a feeling that seems particularly resonant with the events of 2020 – into a journey to healing.

Jaguar Jonze – ASTRONAUT

Aussie singer, songwriter, producer, and multimedia artist Jaguar Jonze earns your undivided attention on her latest single ASTRONAUT.
A syncopated, two-note electric guitar drills into your subconscious, while Jonze uses pining imagery to reach your soul. By the track’s climax, you’ll be lost in space with her.

Indigo Sparke – Everything Everything

Nestled somewhere between folk-lullaby and ethereal rain dance, Indigo Sparke’s latest single Everything Everything is a call to the wild.
With spoken whispers and fingerpicking like running water, the second single from her forthcoming album echo is a heavenly slice of healing. The accompanying video is a shadowland of femininity and nuance.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – Pukebox

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have released a chaotic and existential tune named Pukebox, their first new music for the year. Pukebox is wildly introspective, lead singer Jack McEwen pitting two versions of himself against the other while mystical riffs trill along in the backdrop.
Pukebox comes from Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ forthcoming album SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, released February 5th.

Lana Del Rey – Chemtrails Over the Country Club

Lana Del Ray has just dropped the gorgeous music video for her single Chemtrails Over the Country Club, from her upcoming album of the same name. The new music video shows the heroin-pop icon clad in ’60s fashion, driving a vintage Mercedes-Benz before the video falls into chaos. She and her glamorous group of friends become werewolves in a cinematic fever dream.
Del Ray unveiled Chemtrails Over the Country Club’s album art and 11-song tracklist just last week, noting on Instagram that: “There’s always turmoil and upheaval and in the midst of it — there’s always beautiful music, too.”

San Mei – In The Machine

San Mei’s first new tune of 2021 might not be what you’re expecting, but it’s sick nonetheless. In The Machine is bursting with industrial, grunge, and acid flavours, gnarly and catchy in equal parts.

David Bowie – Tryin’ To Get To Heaven / Mother

On what would have been his 74th birthday, two covers of John Lennon’s Mother and Bob Dylan’s Tryin’ To Get To Heaven have been unearthed from the David Bowie archives. Both are now available to stream and purchase on vinyl.
Both tracks feature Bowie’s unique and recognisable vocals, and they hit just that bit harder in the feels knowing that the musical legend is no longer with us. Mother was originally released by Lennon for his 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, while Bob Dylan’Tryin’ To Get To Heaven featured on his 1997 Grammy-winning record Time Out Of Mind.
