20 New Songs Out Today

Portrayal of Guilt Soft Kill
Portrayal of Guilt and Soft Kill split artwork

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…

ROBYN – “BEACH 2K20″ (YAEJI REMIX)

Yaegi has remixed Robyn’s chilled-out ’90s house number, “Beach 2K20″ (from Honey). “‘Beach2k20’ was an instant summer jam for me,” says Yaeji. “The left field arrangement and dancefloor motifs mixed with Robyn’s relaxed vocals transported me to a beach somewhere I’ve never been. My remix tries to keep those elements that make this song so special, with updated percussion, synths and a call-and-response portion from Robyn and I so that you can bring the track to a dancefloor (and have a good time).”

HOLLIE COOK – “DANCE IN THE SUNSHINE”

Hollie Cook released her first album for Merge last year and is now back with a new single that brings new elements to her breezy, pop reggae style. “Believe it or not, this song was written on a beautiful, hot sunny day in London,” says Hollie. “It is my first writing collaboration with Ben Mckone and Luke Allwood, who play in my live band. The three of us previously collaborated on the production of the last two covers I released (‘Superstar‘ and ‘Sweet Like Chocolate‘), so it was especially fun to write something original together. ‘Dance in the Sunshine’ is about escapism and celebrates living the dream life and liberating yourself.”

CONWAY – “TITO’S BACK” (ft. BENNY THE BUTCHER & WESTSIDE GUNN)

The whole Griselda Records crew (including in-house producer Daringer) unites on this new song, which will appear on Conway’s new album Look What I Became…, due September 13 via Griselda. These guys have all made careers out of keeping the menacing sounds of ’90s New York rap alive and well, and this song is no exception.

HOMEBOY SANDMAN – “FAR OUT”

Underground rap lifer Homeboy Sandman remains very active and prolific, and he’ll release the new album Dusty on October 18 via Mello Music Group. It’s got 15 new songs, including one with Quelle Chris and Your Old Droog, and the first to be shared is the groovy “Far Out.”

ESOTERIC – “DESCENT”

Funeral doom vets Esoteric’s anticipated new album A Pyrrhic Existence comes out November 8th via Season of Mist, and the first taste of the album is now here, in all its nearly-28-minute glory.

SAMMI LANZETTA – “NUDE HUGS, LOVE KEITH”

Richmond, VA’s Sammi Lanzetta is releasing her debut LP, Ceiling Mirror, on November 1 via 6131 Records. Following first single “Titty Logic,” she’s shared a second, “Nude Hugs, Love Keith,” which strays into screamy almost grungy territory by song’s end, in a very good way.

PORTRAYAL OF GUILT – “SACRIFICIAL RITE” & SOFT KILL – “TIN FOIL DRIP”

Portrayal of Guilt and Soft Kill toured together earlier this year (opening for Skeletonwitch), and today they put out a split with one new song from each band. Portrayal of Guilt’s “Sacrificial Rite” starts out as the closest this band has ever come to black metal, and it transitions into the closest they’ve ever come to goth rock. It’s pretty wild. Soft Kill’s “Tin Foil Drip” is over three times as long as the Portrayal of Guilt song, and it finds their usual gothy post-punk in fine form.

GATECREEPER – “EVERLASTING”

Arizona death metallers Gatecreeper have shared a second single off their anticipated new album Deserted, and it’s another total ripper that’s keeping our hopes very high for this album.

KATE TEAGUE – “SWEETHEART”

Alabama singer-songwriter Kate Teague is releasing her self-titled debut EP on September 20 via Muscle Beach Records. About the latest single she’s sharing from that, “Sweetheart,” she says, “👏Just because👏 I’m a 26 year old female doesn’t mean I have the obligation to be chipper / charming to ensure you have a positive work experience with me AND when I am chipper/charming, it doesn’t mean that I’m attracted to you‼️”
