There’s so much good music out in the ether that sometimes it’s difficult to parse through all of it. Every week The Daily Music Report will do the hard work for you and highlight the best releases available on streaming services.

This week we’re highlighting new music from Arctic Lake, Black Pumas, and The Kills.

Arctic Lake – How Do You Make It Look So Easy? EP

Comprising seven tracks that delve into the depths of human emotion, Arctic Lake’s highly anticipated new EP, How Do You Make It Look So Easy?, showcases their unique blend of emotive and earwormy alternative pop. The release is a compilation of songs written over the span of many years, offering a snapshot of their journey through adulthood. As the duo explains the EP is a patchwork of personal stories and universal experiences, weaving together moments that make life both beautiful and challenging. “We wanted How Do You Make It Look So Easy? to be full of highs and lows so although sonically it lives in the same world, it has moments you can dance to and moments you hopefully cry to because that’s what life is like. Some days are hard and some days are magical and then there is everything in-between.”

Standout Songs: Fireflies, Silver Pendant, My Weakness, Are You Okay?

Black Pumas – Chronicles of a Diamond

Chronicles of a Diamond, Black Pumas’ second studio album, made its debut on October 27, 2023, under the ATO Records label. Produced by Adrian Quesada and mixed by Shawn Everett, the album was heralded by the lead single, ‘More Than a Love Song.’ Despite the pressure of delivering their sophomore effort, frontman Eric Burton found the creative process to be both enjoyable and cathartic, likening it to a second debut where he had a more substantial role in shaping the music beyond lyrics and melody.

Standout Songs: More Than A Love Song, Mr. Postman, Sauvignon, Rock and Roll

The Kills – God Games

The Kills have made a triumphant return with their sixth studio album, God Games, released on October 27, 2023, under the Domino label. Produced by Paul Epworth, the release breaks a seven-year hiatus since their last album, Ash & Ice from 2016. Originally, guitarist Jamie Hince set out to create a side project that departed from The Kills’ signature sound but soon realized that this project was, in fact, a quintessential Kills album, characterized by a focus on programming over guitar-based music.

Standout Songs: New York, LA Hex, 103, Blank, Bullet Sound, Better Days
