20 New Songs Out Today

Pitchfork Festival 2018 - Friday
Adrianne Lenker with Big Thief at Pitchfork Fest 2018 (more by James Richards IV)

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…

ADRIANNE LENKER – “FROM”

Big Thief singer Adrianne Lenker will release solo album abyskiss this week, and she’s just shared another spare, spidery, gorgeous folk song from it, “from.”

GLASS CANDY – “NAKED CITY”

Much like George RR Martin working on everything but the long overdue Winds of Winter, Johnny Jewel is still futzing with the long-overdue new Chromatics album while releasing songs by his many other projects. In this case, it’s pretty exciting: the first new Glass Candy song in four years. “Naked City” rides sleekly down a bouncing synth bassline, while Ida No’s vocal’s warmly engage. According to Gorilla Vs Bear, the track was written for Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week show for their 2019 collection.

LIELA MOSS (THE DUKE SPIRIT) – “MEMORIES AND FACES”

Duke Spirit singer Liela Moss will release new solo album, My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth on November 9 via Bella Union. Her smokey voice sounds great in the sweeping new torch song single “Memories and Faces.” “Musically the song is inspired by some of those crawling tempos of Mezzanine-era Massive Attack,” says Liela, “whilst I was also chasing a particular kind of a sparse majesty like you hear in Emmylou Harris’s ‘Wrecking Ball’.”

RACETRAITOR – “CATACLYSM”

Reunited Chicago political hardcore band Racetraitor have shared another song off their first album in 20 years, 2042 (due 10/12 via Good Fight), the grindy “Cataclysm.” Vocalist Mani Mostofi told No Echo, “I started thinking about the ways patriarchy and rape culture intersect with the colonial conquest of the Americas and xenophobia. Macho bravado always seems to drive ultranationalism. The way bigots claim ownership over women’s bodies mirrors their sense of ownership over stolen land. Those ideas became ‘Cataclysm.'”

BASEMENT – “BE HERE NOW”

Basement released another song from their upcoming Beside Myself (due 10/12 via Fueled By Ramen), “Be Here Now.” It’s a jangly, melodic punk song with some pretty strong Jimmy Eat World vibes.

CULT LEADER – “TO: ACHLYS”

After releasing the growly hardcore brutality of “I Am Healed,” Cult Leader are showing a different side of them on “To: Achlys,” which has clean, gothy vocals and atmospheric, post-rocky instrumentation.

JOJI – “CAN’T GET OVER YOU (FEAT. CLAMS CASINO)

Joji recently shared the details of his upcoming debut full-length BALLADS 1, and this third single features Joji’s light falsetto over a minimal, funky instrumental, courtesy of Clams Casino (and non-featured co-producers Thundercat and Roget). The track continues Joji’s shift towards a clearer, up-front sound, compared to the lo-fi influences heard on his debut EP In Tongues last year.

Post-metal staples The Ocean are gearing up to release Phanerozoic I: Palaezoic (due 11/2 via Metal Blade), their first of two new albums, and they’ve put out another song from it. This one’s got guest vocals by Jonas of prog metal vets Katatonia, and Jonas’ voice works perfectly with The Ocean’s atmospheric sound.

SOAK – “EVERYBODY LOVES YOU”

We last heard from (now) 22 year old Irish singer Bridie Monds-Watson, aka SOAK, when she released her debut album, Before We Forgot How to Dream, in 2015. Now she’s back with a new single, “Everybody Loves You,” which she says “is a song about extreme denial. More specifically about my stubborn ability to convince myself I don’t want something that I do and blind my rational thought process. I suppose in this case, as a way of self-protection (and avoiding vulnerability).”

VAN MORRISON – “THE PROPHET SPEAKS”

Van Morrison, who played Forest Hills Stadium back in September, will release new LP The Prophet Speaks, on December 7. “It was important for me to get back to recording new music as well as doing some of the blues material that has inspired me from the beginning,” says Van of the album which features originals and covers. “Writing songs and making music is what I do, and working with great musicians makes it all the more enjoyable.” We’re not sure about the artwork, which features Van and a ventriloquist dummy, but his voice is in fine form on the title track.

IAN SWEET – “HOLOGRAPHIC JESUS”

Jilian Medford releases her second album as Ian Sweet, Crush Crusher, at the end of the month, and has shared a third single, “Holographic Jesus.” The song  “‘is a song based around collecting holographic Jesus posters from various bodegas and dollar stores while living in Brooklyn,” she writes. “I am in no way religious but I hung them up all over my room and was constantly finding the nuances and idiosyncrasies of each one. You could turn your head the slightest and see an entirely different image reflected. I felt connected to that idea. Some people collect ceramic frogs or action figures but I collect holographic Jesus posters. This song is about the things I went through in that room while these posters were so to speak ‘watching over me.'”
