Weekly Tune-Up: Fresh music, plus a 15-song playlist to help launch you into your week

New jams, plus a Spotify playlist to jump start your Monday.

Ya'll staying dry out there? Looks like the rain might stick around for a few days, so that should give you ample time to catch-up on some new music and squeeze in a spin or two of this week's new Tune-Up. Let's get right to it.

Father John Misty is a interesting guy and an excellent musician. His new single "Real Love Baby" is a one off, and there is nothing wrong with that. It's a sunny-vibe tune that's full of reverb, acoustic guitars and playful lyrics of his could be love; something he's pretty good at. Stay tuned for further details on FJM's new album.

How To Dress Well a.k.a. Tom Krell is a master at creating ambient R+B best suited for intimate bedroom settings. With a newly announced album titled Care, he also has introduced us to "Lost Youth/Lost You," a new sexy track, the first from Care. Head over to YouTube to view the new video that goes along with it, it's worth your time.

The Linedots are a London-based duo that just released their impressive debut single. "Small Talk" is a hypnotic song with plentiful synths and a very cool violin sample. "Small Talk" is the kind of track that gets stuck your head once you hear it for a few spins. This being their debut single makes this even more of a impressive debut. Well done, Linedots.

Clams Casino is a hot producer fresh off of his buzz worthy album, 32 Levels. "Be Somebody" is a moody song featuring A$AP Rocky and Lil B handling the lyrical content. A haunting beat with background moans and whispers add to the darkness of the Claims industrial sounding production. I'm a fan.
