3. Thought-provoking Seattle rapper Sol released his latest single “In My Pocket.” The song hearkens to the golden age of hip-hop when the genre provided a window into emcee’s minds, their day-to-day, and their perspective on what’s around them. Oh, and the song is hella catchy, too.

4. Southern California rockers Death Valley Girls released their latest song, “When I’m Free,” earlier this week. The track features delightful wobbly lyrics, moon-piercing organs, and just a general sense of fun. We love Death Valley Girls.

5. Actress and musician Victoria Blade released her latest music video this week for the song, “I Don’t Wanna Worry.” Blade, who is a talented singer and songwriter, was also a star of the television show WandaVision in 2021, playing the role of Commercial Woman. Check out the new vid below.

10. Is there a better guitarist on planet earth other than Billy Strings? The answer is no.

So, let’s do so and check out his latest single and music video for the song “Love And Regret” below.
