1. Judah & the Lion – “over my head”

Judah & the Lion have returned with the ‘mando! As you may have gathered from the title, the song is about managing life when you’ve just got too much on your plate. The song’s artwork pays homage to the Beastie Boys’ Check Your Head.

2. Vampire Weekend – “Harmony Hall”

The band announce a album, their first since 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City, and shared two brand new songs. Both will appear on the record, Father of the Bride, when it arrives in spring 2019.

Listen to their other song “2021” here.

3. Florence + the Machine – “Moderation”

Just six months after releasing their album High As Hope, Florence and her Machine have shared not one, but TWO new songs! No word yet on if either will appear on a new album, but we can hope.

Listen to the band’s other track “Haunting House” here.

Every week, it’s Your First Listen to the the newest alternative music. Hosted by SONiC Music Director, Brandy Taylor, Your First Listen airs twice a week, Sundays and Tuesday at 10pm.
