New Music Friday is back again, and this time, it’s packed with female debut albums and electronic LPs you’ll have on repeat.

Here are the albums you should listen to this week.

Sigrid – Sucker Punch

Sigrid‘s aptly named debut album Sucker Punch packs, well, a punch of pop. The album is filled with pop anthems that are brazenly fun and triumphant. Belting along will be inevitable.

Dido – Still on My Mind

Dido has returned after 3 years with her classic downtempo synthpop. Still on My Mind is “an elegant but fresh collection of her familiar electro-folk with a hip-hop heartbeat.”

Gesaffelstein – Hyperion

French DJ Gesaffelstein has released a ten track electronic album with giant features, including Pharrell, Electric Youth, Haim, and The Weeknd, and is a mix of “pop, goth, and cinematic scores”.


Say hello to another bold, well rounded debut album on this New Music Friday. Somewhere between dream pop and indie rock lies this complex yet delicate album.

Helado Negro – This Is How You Smile

Hello, cosmically powerful synthfolk. This emotionally empowering album is one for the record books, with experimental electronic landscapes and poetic lyrics.
