Zayn’s Bare Hymn, Kota The Friend’s Brooklyn Bop, And More Songs We Love

24-year-old indie-rocker Samia dropped her debut studio album The Baby last August, so the title is hardly a misnomer. But it’s a new year now. The Baby has to make room for its younger sibling The Baby Reimagined, a new collection of remixes from 11 different artists. Palehound’s spacey, slowed-down take on “Big Wheel” is a standout. Added guitars and warped vocals create the perfect backdrop for her simmering frustration. “God, I’m really gonna blow with all this empathetic shit,” she sings. “I understand the thing you did and every reason you did it.” Also of note: The “lover in my bedroom” here is a “she,” not a “he.” I got good news, and I didn’t fight! —Sam Manzella
