Finding new artists is easier than ever, but this creates a problem: it's harder than ever to filter through it all and keep tabs on what's really good.
With so many artists popping up every day, it's impossible not to miss out on some fresh faces and new sounds. With that in mind, we'll be highlighting our favorite new acts each month. Here are the best new artists of August.
The Moon Baby
The Moon Baby's "Witch" may be the most unique song you hear all week. If you're not feeling the first or second movements, hang tight—the Wise Blood collaboration takes a number of twists and turns in under three minutes, turning to elephantine trombones and syrupy vocals to keep things exciting.
It's a song about "feminine majical [sic] energies," according to its creator. "Wise Blood is a genius and we do for each other musically what we can't do for ourselves. It's a true collaboration every time.”
