New Music Alert: November
November 1, 2021

Happy first of the month, but more importantly, happy New Music Alert day. We’ve rounded up another crew of outstanding artists from our global Sofar community– slow jams, sweet folk, buoyant rap numbers, all right here. Hear new music and support independent artists, all in one listen. Check out playlists below, along with a little more detail on each of these stellar songs (and the artists making them).

LISTEN ON SPOTIFY

WATCH ON YOUTUBE

Pedro Pastor | “El Estallido” 

Fresh, sparse, simple, catchy– the Spanish singer/songwriter embodies it all in “El Estallido.” The song takes a particularly sweet turn in the last minute when we get those extra voices in there for a celebratory outro. 

LISTEN NOW

Jessica Domingo | “Gravitate”

The horns, snaps, and a dusting of reverb– you’re hooked within the first three seconds, then when the LA-based-via-PNW artist’s vocals seep in, you’re in it for the full thing. Gift yourself these soulful three minutes. 

LISTEN NOW

Transviolet | “Everything Everything”

A slow jam with a pop backbone. The LA four-piece crafted a song that feels like last-call at your favorite rooftop in the city. In slow motion. Did you get notes of that too? 

LISTEN NOW

Daysormay | “Running”

Strap your shoes on for the trek– you can just feel the subtle anthemic build throughout this pop number. By the last minute, it hits a strong stride. 

LISTEN NOW

Oompa | “LEBRON”

This one just gets in the pocket, ASAP. The Boston-based hip-hop artist and educator was named one of NPR’s 2020 Slingshot Artists to Watch, and “LEBRON” shows she’s got many more accolades ahead. 

LISTEN NOW

SoloSam | “Traffic Jam”

If only traffic jams felt this serene– the song just sonically swirls around and uplifts you. Next time you’re stuck between still cars, put on this Chicago artist’s track to transcend the gridlock. 

LISTEN NOW

Annie Sumi | “Oliver”

A reminder that a simple ballad can have mega force. The Canadian folk artist shares just that with”Oliver”– and when that flute comes in like fluttering birds? That’s just downright dreamy. 

LISTEN NOW

Myrddin | “Djura” 

The perfect finale, courtesy of an outrageously talented Belgian artist known as Myrddin. These lightning-speed guitar lines feel like ripples through a wheat field. You’ll wanna feel that soft breeze again and again.
