20 New Songs Out Today

Madonna Swae Lee

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…

MADONNA – “CRAVE” (ft. SWAE LEE)

Madonna has shared another song off her upcoming Madame X, and this one’s a hip hop-tinged ballad that features Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.

TŌTH – PRACTICE MAGIC AND SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP WHEN NECESSARY (ALBUM STREAM)

Brooklyn artist and Rubblebucket co-founder Alex Toth, just released his solo debut as Tōth, which blends percussion-heavy folk with ambient/new age vibes for an expansive album of widescreen pop.

MAXO KREAM – “SHE LIVE” (ft. MEGAN THEE STALLION)

Houston rappers Maxo Kream and Megan Thee Stallion are two of our favorite rappers in the world right now, so needless to say, we were excited to learn they released a song together. They sound like they’re having fun with this one, and it’s fun to listen to, too.

MIKAL CRONIN – “BREATHE”

Mikal Cronin is back with his first record in four years, a new 7″ he made with Jason Quever of Papercuts that’s out today via Famous Class. He already shared the excellent a-side, “Undertow,” and now here’s the flip, a dreamier, melancholy song titled “Breathe.” Stream both sides:

NOTS – ‘3’ (ALBUM STREAM)

Memphis synth-punks released their third album today, featuring 10 post-apocalyptic post-punk rippers that may be deep-fried but might also unclog your arteries.

ZEELOPERZ – “EASTER SUNDAY” (ft. EARL SWEATSHIRT)

ZeeloperZ is a member of Bruiser Brigade with Danny Brown, and today he released a new solo album, Dyn-o-mite, executive produced by Black Noi$e. It features Earl Sweatshirt on the song “Easter Sunday,” and if you liked the warped sounds of Earl’s 2018 album Some Rap Songs, you’re gonna like this too.

DEHD – WATER

Chicago band NE-HI just announced they’ve broken up but a silver lining is that singer-guitarist Jason Balla’s other band, Dehd — which features Emily Kempf who used to play in Lala Lala — just released their very good second album, Water, full of hooky mid-fi indie rock.

CHARGER – CHARGER (EP STREAM)

The members of Rancid have been busy with non-Rancid projects lately, and here’s the new EP from bass wiz/vocalist Matt Freeman’s band Charger. They’re more on the Motorhead side than Rancid, and it should be no surprise that Freeman’s bark is perfect for this kind of thing.

TEE GRIZZLEY – “LOCKED UP”

Tee Grizzley announced a Timbaland-produced project called Scriptures, due June 7 via 300 Entertainment, and today he released the new song “Locked Up.” It’s a sad, serious song about the prison system — and specifically about his mother being locked up for life — that sees Grizzley in melancholic, sing-rap mode.

GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW – “EMO BLUES” & “WHEN THE FONK RADIATES”

Psychedelic soul great Georgia Anne Muldrow is releasing a new instrumental album, VWETO II, on June 21 via Mello Music Group, and two hypnotic tracks are streaming now.

BOOGARINS – SOMBROU DÚVIDA (ALBUM STREAM)

The title of Brazilian band Boogarins’ new album translates to “Shadow or Doubt,” which the band chose as an incentive to push beyond their comfort zones and doubts. The album is certainly different from what we’ve heard from Boogarins, before, with modern glitchy production mixing with their tropicalia psych — a combo that sounds pretty sweet.

ANIKA PYLE – “GOOD WOMAN”

Katie Ellen singer Anika Pyle (formerly of Chumped) shared this stark, stripped down new track, with minimal keys and ghostly vocal harmonies. It comes with a video from Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry.

DOOMSQUAD – “LET YOURSELF BE SEEN”

Toronto’s DOOMSQUAD just release their awesome third album, Let Yourself Be Seen, which they call a “project of protest, catharsis and emotional and spiritual reconnection through music and, especially, through dance-music culture.” The title track could pass for peak-period Underworld

UROCHROMES – “MILIEUX”

“Milieux,” from punks Urochromes’ forthcoming debut LP is a kiss-off ripper with lines like “that’s your milieux thinking you’re all stars in the making / I see you posing for a picture no one is taking” and even working in a John Cougar Mellencamp reference.

MISSIONS – “TRUTHER”

Josh Mills has been part of the Austin synth scene for a long time, and has worked as an engineer for Stranger Things composers (and S U R V I V E members) Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s score for Nat Geo series Valley of the Boom. (According to the band, he’s jokingly referred to as the fifth member of S U R V I V E.) Now based out of Los Angeles, Josh also makes music on his own as Missions and will release new album, Subcreature, on August 2 via Holodeck, the label run by members of S U R V I V E. Here’s the fist single.
