Best New Artists is back, and this month we've got a mixed bag of rising artists who have little in common other than great music. We love months like this—months when we could put all of our new favorites on a playlist and it would make no sense. And you know what? We will put them on a playlist anyway, and if you end up being a fan of Xanman, Grace Ives, Kota The Friend, Baby Rose, and Christian Alexander, then here's that playlist.

Pigeons & Planes is all about music discovery, supporting new artists, and delivering the best music curation online and IRL. Follow us on and .
