Playlist of the Week – Atwood Magazine

Caraclysm – Crywolf

Alessia Cara

Know-It-All tells a story: It is relentless in its examination of life through the lens. From past to present, we grow up alongside Alessia Cara, and it is this transparent attempt at authenticity that makes Know-It-All perhaps the most relatable record of the year. It resonates with every teenager searching for an identity – and all teenagers are searching for an identity. Cara toasts to the loners – the teens who haven’t yet found their place in the world. Any 19-year-old can empathize and sing along to Cara’s music with confidence, finding comfort in a girl who refuses to conform to anything.

Watch: “Here” – Alessia Cara

Jamie N Commons

Passion drives people to do great things. It is what drove 27-year-old Jamie N Commons toward a life of music, and it is what kept him working, every day, on his forthcoming debut album for the past two+ years. That same passion bursts through like a relentless ray of rock ‘n’ roll sunshine on “Marathon,” Commons’ new, groovy single. Constantly pushing forward while exercising considerable restraint, “Marathon” showcases Jamie N Commons in all the right ways, exhibiting his smooth-yet-gritty baritone vocals, his up-to-date, authentic blues-rock fusion, and his tight control over everything from timing to dynamics and energy.

Watch: “Marathon” – Jamie N Commons

XXIX – Wafia

Ten for Ten – Frank Turner


With FIDLAR, there’s never a dull moment. Their second album is proof, finding FIDLAR expanding their sound beyond the traditional boundaries of punk and garage rock while also tackling highly personal subject matter.

Watch: “Leave Me Alone” – FIDLAR

The Incredible True Story – Logic

Side by Side – Natalie Prass

Watch: “Blackstar” – David Bowie
