Best New Music Recommendations Based on Artists You Already Love: Cash+David, French Horn Rebellion, and More


(Getty Images) There's something for everyone in this week's best new music recommendations, which range from the ultra sexy (well done, Kwesi K) to the super sweet (why hello, Arielle). As always, we've offered some illustrative comparisons to aid in the finding of your new jam.

1. Sleigh Bells + Lorde = Cash+David 
This week's most exciting discovery is a London-based duo who, according to press materials, might describe themselves as "'Singing 'Like A Virgin' in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars." And they'd be half right — the definition falls short of fully capturing the moments of austere beauty of their first track, "Funn."


2. Miike Snow + Tiesto = Galantis
The video for this euphoric lead single from Swedish production duo Galantis is a little too naughty for posting (one coworker described it as a moving American Apparel ad), but the song is fun enough on its own. Catch them this April at Coachella.


3. Taylor Swift + Paramore = Arielle
Arielle's new single "California" sounds like it might have been carefully crafted by Taylor Swift and belted out beautifully by Paramore's Hayley Williams. Did we mention that this 22-year-old newcomer can shred, too? Just ask Queen's Brian May, who discovered her.


4. Cut Copy + Stars = French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore
If you've ever been involved in the gloriousness that is a French Horn Rebellion live show, then you know these people are funky. If not, it's time to change your life — but first listen to Autograf's poignant remix of "The Fire," FHR's warm and toasty collaboration with Brooklyn pop fantasists Savoir Adore. Then get thee to a show.


5. Ben Harper + John Legend = Kwesi K
Today's sexiest new offering is the video for Kwesi K's gorgeously relaxed single "Pronouns," which sounds like something you might want to roll around in bed to. Do feel free.
