22 New Songs Out Today

Mura Masa & Clairo

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…

AMEN DUNES – “L.A.” (REMIX FT WESTERMAN)

Amen Dunes has remixed “L.A.,” the closing track to last year’s Freedom, with help from Craig Silvey, which now has him trading verses with UK artist Westerman. It’s mellower take on the song, too, but equally compelling.

ELBOW – “EMPIRES”

While Elbow released “Dexter & Sinister” a few weeks back, “Empires” is the first official single from the UK band’s forthcoming Giants of All Sizes. Like all good Elbow songs, “Empires” is big, soaring and just a little melancholy. The new album’s out October 11 via Verve.

AVEY TARE & GEOLOGIST (ANIMAL COLLECTIVE) – “SUMMER BLAZE”

Back in 2015, Animal Collective’s Avey Tare and Geologist digitally released a split single called New Psycho Actives Vol.1. Four years later they’re following it up with Vol. 2. Unlike the first, where they worked separately on individual songs, Avey and Geologist are collaborating and have shared the sprawling, ambient-leaning 24-minute A-side. An “Autumn”-themed b-side will follow later this year.

JENN CHAMPION – “TURN UP THE RADIO” (FEAT. VICTOR LE MASNE)

Onetime Carissa’s Wierd member Jenn Champion has a new single that continues with the synthy direction she’s been heading for a while. Written with French producer Victor le Masne (Housse de Racket), it’s got a sleek, ’80s dance feel.

GUAXE (BOOGARINS, SUPERCORDAS) – “ONDA”

Brazil’s Guaxe is a new project from Dino Almeida of Boogarins and Pedro Bonifrate of Supercordas. Named after an Atlantic forest bird native to where they recorded the album, Guaxe make light-on-its-feet, trippy psych pop that owes as much to The Flaming Lips and Broadcast as it does Os Mutantes. The Guaxe album is out September 6.

HUNDREDTH – “LEAVE YOURSELF”

Hundredth have released a third single in their 2019 single series, and this one sees them going in more of a straight-up alternative rock direction than ever before, but still with the atmospheric vibes of their other recent material.

MURA MASA & CLAIRO – “I DON’T THINK I CAN DO THIS AGAIN”

Producer Alex Crossan, aka Mura Masa, shared the first track of his forthcoming, to be announced second album. “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again” glitches out vocals from rising alt-pop artist Clairo, who recently released her debut LP Immunity. “I’m thrilled to debut this new sound with one of indie music’s most exciting and talented songwriting newcomers in Clairo,” Alex says.

THE GREAT OLD ONES – “NYARLATHOTEP”

The Great Old Ones have shared a second single off their anticipated new album Cosmicism, and while the previous single was pummeling black metal, this one is slower, sludgier, and all around more evil.

THEY. – “STOP PLAYIN'”

R&B duo THEY. are back with a very nice sounding single that a press release says is “a new chapter for the group leading up to a larger, visionary body of work that will unfold throughout the year.”

EARTHEATER – “HIGH TIDE”

Eartheater, aka Alexandra Drewchin, is releasing a new mixtape of “gushy wet love anthem(s),” Trinity, on her new label, Chemical X. The first track off that, “High Tide,” was co-produced by AceMo.

LINA TULLGREN – “SOFT GLOVE 1″

Lina Tullgren’s new album Free Cell comes out Friday, and they’ve shared one final single ahead of its release, “Soft Glove 1.” “This song fell out of me amidst post tour, post move burnout,” Lina says. “Each show you put all of your energy into channeling the feelings and experiences you had that led you to write the song, sometimes re traumatizing yourself in the process. This song emerged on a day where I had to go play a solo show but I really didn’t want to go. I felt tired- tired in the deepest and truest sense of the word-and when you are that tired, the idea of having to show a room of strangers your personal life feels no longer cathartic, it just feels like labor. It hurts to have to give it all away when you hardly even have enough for yourself.”

COFFINS – “TERMINATE BY OWN PROPHECY”

Japanese death metallers Coffins have shared another song off their upcoming album Beyond The Circular Demise (due 9/20 via Relapse), and while Coffins often get pegged with the “death-doom” subgenre, this song rolls.

SNUFF – “HEY BOFF”

Long-running UK punks Snuff have shared another song off their upcoming album There’s A Lot Of It About (due 9/20 via Fat Wreck Chords), and following the ska-tinged “Dippy Egg,” this one sees them going in more of a power pop direction (it sounds a little like “What I Like About You”).

FITTED – “TRAINING PIT BULLS FOR THE NAVY”

FITTED began as a one-off, improvisational live performance as part of Wire’s 1999 DRILL festival in Los Angeles, featuring Wire’s Graham Lewis & Matthew Sims as well as Mike Watt and Bob Lee (The Freeks). They practiced all of once before their set at DRILL, but something clicked with the four musicians as, two years later, FITTED have announced their debut album. This is the tightly coiled, razor-sharp first single.

GREAT GRANDPA – “MONO NO AWARE”

Great Grandpa are going in a more lush-sounding direction from their raw, DIY indie rock debut on their upcoming sophomore album Four of Arrows, and the first taste is “Mono no Aware.” “It’s less of an evolution than it was a real representation of our interests,” said guitarist Dylan Hanwright.
