The Raconteurs
The Raconteurs

So many artists, so little time. Each week we review five new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we’d call “indie,” and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

GAZ COOMBES (SUPERGRASS) – “SALAMANDER”

Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes returns with this banger of a new track — all glammed up with pouding piano and nice sax work. No word on if this is attached to an album (probably) buty this has us wanting to hear more.

MADONNA – “FUTURE” (FT. QUAVO)

Diplo produced this reggae-infected new single from Madonna’s upcoming album, Madame X. The song features Quavo and Madonna says, “It’s a song about the world that we live in today and the future of our civilization.” Don’t worry she manages to boil all that down into three minutes and 53 seconds.

THE INTELLIGENCE – “AUTEUR DETOUR”

Lars Finberg’s weirdo garage surf combo The Intelligence will return with new album Un-Psychedelic Peavy City next week and here’s a second drop of acid from it. Lars described it to Raven Sings the Blues as a “No Wave Santana Exercise” but smooth is never a word we’d use to describe The Intelligence.

LANA DEL REY – “DOIN’ TIME” (SUBLIME COVER)

Is Sublime cool again? We’re not sure, but Lana’s version of this 1996 songs puts a starry-eyed spin on the original.

Mike Patton, of Faith No More, Mr Bungle, and more, has teamed with French composer and onetime Serge Gainsbourg collaborator Jean-Claude Vannier (who worked on Histoire de Melody Nelson) for a new project called Corpse Flower. The first single seems like a Reeses Cup combo of Patton and Vannier’s sonic worlds: suave and slinky, but with Patton bellowing at the top of his lungs, “When I get to the top of the world, I’ll take a shit right down on this earth!”
