Recommended If You Like: Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai

Formally known as Yesterday vs. Tomorrow, the rebranded four-piece released the first single from its yet-to-be-titled new album early last week. “Bennington” is a contemplative, building cut of triumphant post-rock.

Chill Ali – “Misguided” (Song)

The smooth-flowing MC dropped the video for the socially conscious track “Misguided,” which tackles the subject of youth without parental guidance.

The Rochester singer/songwriter shared the Winnie the Pooh-starring music video for his latest song. The mid-tempo “Let It Slide” will appear on Lewis’s upcoming album, Panic Rock, set to drop in mid-July.
