So many artists, so little time. Each week we review a handful of 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…

CAGE THE ELEPHANT – “BROKEN BOY” (ft. IGGY POP)

Cage the Elephant have released a new version of “Broken Boy” from last year’s Social Cues, and this new version features the legendary Iggy Pop singing one of the verses. “Cage is a super high energy outfit, living the Rock dream, so for a couple of fun minutes I was one of the boys. Sounds pretty wicked to me,” Iggy says.

BC CAMPLIGHT – “BACK TO WORK”

BC Camplight will be release new album Shortly After Takeoff on April 24 via Bella Union. The first single is “Back to Work” which vacillates between a weird, heavy electronic chorus and a more folk-rock-y verses, while lyrically dealing with getting on with it: “I’ve gotta block out most of the pain just / like John McClane does / I wanna look myself in the eye / be a normal guy / and say some clever shit whenever I’m about to die.”

The first single is “We’ve Landed” which showcases both performers’ distinctive styles, but also sone spoken lyrics from Allen. “The song is dedicated to today’s youth,” explains Tony, “the lyric addresses people at seventeen, eighteen, nineteen years old, who are slowly becoming more mature, finding out who they are and realizing that it’s their generation’s turn to wake up!”

JANE HERSHIPS (SPIDER) – “BEST FRIENDS”

Jane Herships has played in many Brooklyn bands (TEEN, Amazing Baby, Drawing Boards) and also made records as Spider, but will release an album under her own name, The Home Record, on February 28. The first single, “Best Friends,” is a gorgeous, sweeping piece of dreampop with an especially lovely vocal from Jane.

EYE FLYS – “TUBBA LARD”

Eye Flys — the band of Full of Hell guitarist Spencer Hazard, Backslider bassist Jake Smith (on guitar and vocals), former Backslider drummer Patrick Forrest, and Triac’s Kevin Bernsten on bass — debuted last year with the ripping Context EP, and now they have announced their debut album. It’s called Tub of Lard, and it’s due March 20 via Thrill Jockey. The first single is the sorta-title track “Tubba Lard,” and it’s a killer mix of sludge and hardcore that picks up where the EP left off and continues to push Eye Flys’ sound forward.

KAREN O & DANGER MOUSE – “PERFECT DAY” (LOU REED COVER)

Unlike Lour Reed’s sweeping original, Karen O & Dangermouse take an understated approach, with gently strummed guitar, light synthy strings and Karen’s fragile vocal delivery.

FOUR TET – “BABY” (ft. ELLIE GOULDING)

MARK KOZELEK WITH BEN BOYE AND JIM WHITE – “MY BROTHER LOVES SEAGULLS

While there is a certain stream-of-consciousness, diary-entry quality most of Mark’s recent work, “My Brother Loves Seagulls” is a much more songlike and lyrical, even if it doesn’t follow pop structures. Mark tells a tale of a health scare his brother faced against gorgeous, cascading acoustic guitars.

SPARTA – “BELIEVE”

Former At the Drive In member Jim Ward’s band Sparta announced their first new album in 14 years, and you can read more about the album and new single “Believe” here.
