22 New Songs Out Today

Brockhampton
Brockhampton

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…

BROCKHAMPTON – “I BEEN BORN AGAIN”

Brockhampton are staying prolific, and planning to release a new album called GINGER this year. The first single is “I Been Born Again,” which has the group’s forward-thinking art rap in excellent form.

RICO NASTY – “WELCOME TO THE PARTY” (remix of POP SMOKE)

Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke has been going viral thanks to his recent breakout song “Welcome To The Party,” and now Rico Nasty is joining the, uh, party, with her own remix of the song. Rico showed off a more melodic side on her recent single “Time Flies,” but she goes hard on this one.

JULIANA HATFIELD – “DE DO DO DO, DE DA DA DA” (THE POLICE COVER)

Juliana Hatfield is releasing an entire album of Police covers that will be out November 15 and is part of her “Juliana Hatfield Sings” series (she did Olivia Newton John in 2018). “The songs I’ve chosen seem to resonate in the present moment,” says Juliana. “‘Rehumanize Yourself,’ ‘Landlord,’ and ‘Murder By Numbers’ explore ugly kinds of nationalism, abuses of power, and the mendacity of large swaths of the ruling class. And then there are the timeless, relatable psychodramas: ‘Every Breath You Take,’ ‘Can’t Stand Losing You,’ and ‘Canary In A Coalmine’.” Then there’s “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da,” which was a Top 10 hit in 1980 and Juliana doesn’t mess with too much in her version.

FOALS – “BLACK BULL”

Foals have announced details of the second part of the Everything Will Not Be Saved record — it’ll be out October 18 via Warner Brothers and features 10 new songs. (Part 1, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize, came out back in March.) “Part two is a heavier listen, the guitars are more emphasized and there’s some big riffs on it,” frontman Yannis Philippakis told NME. The first single is “Black Bull” which does indeed include some heavy riffing.

MICROWAVE – “DIAWB” & “CARRY”

Atlanta’s Microwave signed to Pure Noise and they’ll release their third album, Death Is A Warm Blanket, on September 13 via their new label home. Along with the album announcement comes two singles that are noticeably darker, heavier, and noisier than Microwave’s usual alt-rock revival. If you ask us, it’s some of the most appealing stuff they’ve done yet.

BLACK DRESSES – “HERTZ”

Devi McCallion and Ada Rook have been releasing music as Black Dresses at a frenetic rate; they shared THANK YOU back in February, and now they have another new album, LOVE AND AFFECTION FOR STUPID LITTLE BITCHES. It’s perhaps their least abrasive and most listenable effort yet.

QUEEN OF JEANS – “ALL THE SAME”

In July, Queen of Jeans announced their new Will Yip-produced album If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid (due 8/23 via Topshelf) and released its lead single “Get Lost” which we named one of our favorite songs of the month. Now they’re back with another single, and it’s another great dose of folk-tinged indie rock that wraps around you like a warm blanket.

COUSIN STIZZ – “STP”

Boston rapper Cousin Stizz recently released the City Girls collab “Perfect,” and today he shared the new single “STP” and revealed that both will appear on his new album, Trying to Find My Next Thrill, due August 14 via RCA. (Other guests include Freddie Gibbs, Smino, and more.) Like “Perfect,” “STP” should have no trouble getting your head nodding.

PORTRAYAL OF GUILT – “MORAL DECAY”

Texas screamo band Portrayal of Guilt have shared a second single off their upcoming Suffering Is A Gift EP (due 8/30 via Closed Casket Activities), and this one is much more of an atmospheric slow-burner than we’re used to from this band. In it’s own way, it’s just as great as their more spastic stuff.

PARSNIP – “RIP IT OFF”

Australian band Parsnip will release their debut album, When The Tree Bears Fruit, on August 30 via Trouble in Mind and the band’s appealing new single “Rip it Off,” falls somewhere between ’60s paisley pop and early-’80s post punk. ”To me ‘Rip It Off’ came from a feeling of being hung up on what the future holds, living in a haze of concern, and so missing out on your life as it’s happening,” says the band’s Stella Rennex. “I suppose it is a song about worrying…the fruitlessness of incessant worry.” It’s paired with a gorgeously shot, very whimsical video of the band out in the elements in a variety of costumes.

BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT – “MOTORCYCLE”

Portland psych band Blackwater Holylight are gearing up to open for Swedish doomers Monolord on their North American tour, and ahead of that tour they’ve announced a new album, Veils of Winter, due October 11 via RidingEasy Records. The first single is the hypnotic “Motorcycle,” which is a little heavier and doomier than the songs on Blackwater Holylight’s last album, and should pair very well with Monolord on the road this fall. It sorta sounds like Queens of the Stone Age meets ’60s girl groups, and that sounds as cool in execution as it does on paper.

RICHARD DAWSON – “JOGGING”

Richard Dawson, the UK singer-songwriter (and not the late former host of Family Feud), is back with his sixth album, titled 2020 and out October 11 via Domino. The first single is “Jogging,” a charming if wordy look at the many psychological benefits of running. He throws in a little hard rock riffage too. The video plays out the lyrics in a humorous, literal way.

MIGOS, LIL YACHTY & GUCCI MANE – “INTRO”

Two more songs are out from the upcoming Quality Control compilation, Quality Control: Control The Streets Volume 2, due August 16 via QC. This one’s got the label’s flagship group, Migos, joined by Lil Yachty and Gucci Mane, and it offers just what you’d expect from a collaboration like that.

24HEAVY & YOUNG THUG – “LONGTIME”

The other new song out from the new Quality Control comp is 24Heavy and Young Thug’s “Longtime.” Both find the middle ground between singing and rapping (in their own ways), and it makes for a more R&B-tinged foil to “Intro.”

CHYNNA – “ASMR”

ASMR continues to be a huge trend and it’s the inspiration for Philly rapper Chynna’s hazy new song. “The asmr shit is just so funny to me. I’ve heard that I had an asmr voice and I’m trying to entertain my fans that are into asmr,” she says.

FASTBALL – “THE HELP MACHINE”

It’s been about 20 years since Austin alt-rockers Fastball had a hit, but they remain active and their new stuff is not bad at all. Their new album, The Help Machine — which was produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and features contributions from Wye Oak’s Andy Stack, Bruce Hughes (ex-Cracker), Charlie Sexton, and John Chipman (ex-Band of Heathens) — comes out October 18 via Zuni Tunes and the just-released title track is an atmospheric song with some pretty gorgeous harmonies.

Indie rock vets +/- {Plus/Minus}, the trio of Versus’ James Baluyut and Patrick Ramos plus drummer Chris Deaner, are back with their first record in five yearsSummer 2019: Extended Play. The first single is the instantly appealing, soaring “Driving Aimlessly” which is sung by Ramos.
