Antenna Sampler
Google Play is back with another fresh lineup of new artists and tracks you need to hear! Whether it's new hip-hop, electronic, indie rock, country or international music, Antenna will get you tuned in.

Bay Area rapper/producer IamSu! easily absorbs Wiz Khalifa into the spacey, snare-drilling beat and hyphy chorus of "Goin' Up," while 21-year old Las Vegas MC Dizzy Wright lays uplifting yet down-to-earth lyrics over a hazy soul guitar sample on "Fly High."

EDM pop turns up everywhere from ex-Danity Kane and Diddy/Dirty Money singer Dawn Richard's "Riot" to mannered indie darlings Ra Ra Riot's less expected—though no less ecstatic—"Beta Love." (Credit lead singer Wes Miles' R&B side project Discovery for that one, perhaps.)

On the indie pop side, Seattle band The Pharmacy offer a jangly, bright-but-plaintive track with "Baby Be," while Boston duo You Won't deliver an acoustic piano-and-handclap sing-along on "Television." Singer-songwriter (and sometimes world-travelling farmhand) Wake Owl does pastoral folk shaded with an appealing darkness on "Gold." Then our playlist blissfully wanders to South America with Brazilian-born cellist and singer Dom La Nena, whose "No Meu Pais" is a beautifully delicate acoustic number, sung in her native Portuguese, about feeling rootless.

Producers Nosaj Thing and FaltyDL both deal in bass-driven electronic sounds, each with their own distinct and creative touches. FaltyDL ditches dubstep's endless quest for impossible new bass depths to better explore mid-range melodics and crystalline sound design on "Korben Dallas," while Nosaj teams up with Blonde Redhead singer Kazu Makino for an ethereal, lovelorn track that always feels right on the edge of exploding.

And if that weren't enough, we bring it all back down to earth with "Dream," from Kenny Loggins' new country trio Blue Sky Riders. Dig right in and enjoy these flavorful new tunes.
