The descriptions below are taken from this week’s release notes:

AWOLNATION is known for their intense, punchy songs that leave you feeling powerful. Channel that energy this week and pick up their single “The Best”, which hails from their upcoming studio album Angel Miners & The Lightning Riders. According to singer songwriter Aaron Bruno, this track is all about digging into what it really means to be the best. AWOLNATION’s “The Best” features lyrics we can all relate to, try your hand at singing along. Whether you’re going it alone or getting the whole band together, show off and strive for that FC.

Black Pumas is a soulful duo from Austin, Texas. Throw on their self-titled debut album, crank the volume, and you’ll immediately find yourself swaying along to their unique sound. This Grammy nominated band had their single “Colors” skyrocket to #1 on the US AAA charts and landed spots earlier this year on multiple TV talk shows. The vocals on Black Pumas’ “Colors” are what immediately stand out – they tell an incredibly powerful story about different facets of life, good and bad. The bass line is undeniably groovy, the guitar is electrifying, and the drums keep the beat bouncing.
