June has proved to be yet another huge month for music, from a wondrously melancholic new Phoebe Bridgers album to a hard-hitting of-its-time surprise release from Queen Bey herself. It’s also been a month of covers, from Soccer Mommy’s rendition of ‘Drive‘ by The Cars, to Poppy’s revival of hit 2002 track ‘All The Things She Said‘ by Russian duo Tatu. Challenges in narrowing it all down aside, here are my top 10 picks of new music this month:
