22 New Songs Out Today

FACS
FACS

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…

KATIE GATELY – “WALTZ”

Experimental art pop artist Katie Gately, who’s playing the new Outline series at Knockdown Center in Queens this February, has shared the stunning second single off her upcoming album Loom (due February 14 via Houndstooth). “When I listen, I see images that correlate to a zebra on a bad LSD trip,” Katie says of the song, and if that description piques your interest, you probably want to hear this eccentric new song.

HILARY WOODS – “TONGUES OF WILD BOAR”

Hilary Woods will follow her 2018 debut album Colt with her sophomore LP, Birthmarks, on March 13 via Sacred Bones. She made this album with veteran noise musician Lasse Marhaug, and the two of them used field recordings, synths, cello, saxophone, and more to achieve the album’s nightmarish sounds, as you can hear on the eerie yet breathtaking lead single “Tongues of Wild Boar.” If you’re unfamiliar with Hilary Woods, fans of artists like Chelsea Wolfe, Emma Ruth Rundle, and Marissa Nadler should take note.

FACS – “TEENAGE HIVE”

Chicago trio FACS, who grew out of Disappears, will release their third album, Void Moments, on March 27 via Trouble in Mind. Like with Disappears, FAC’s sound morphs and becomes more refined with each record and first single “Teenage Hive” is taught, compact and hard hitting. (John Congleton’s mix certainly doesn’t hurt the impact.) Frontman Brian Chase tells Steregum it’s “about not defining yourself so that other people can understand you. The evolved consciousness I’ve seen with my son and his generation/peer group regarding gender, identity, and human rights is the only hope for the future and informs all of Void Moments, which is ultimately an album about facing who we are.”

NAP EYES – “MARK ZUCKERBERG”

Canadian group Nap Eyes will be back with new album Snapshot of a Beginner on March 27 via Jagjaguwar / Royal Mountain. The first single is the very catchy “Mark Zuckerberg” which is only kinda about the Facebook founder, though the somewhat creepy animated video is moreso.

HELEN MONEY – “MIDNIGHT”

Composer Alison Chesley will release Atomic, her new album as Helen Money, on March 20 via Thrill Jockey. She says they album came after a period of change for her and her family. “After my parents passed away, we had to find new ways to be – with ourselves and each other. The whole process brought us closer together, strengthening the bonds between the three of us; between us and our friends; between us and my extended family. My sister and brother and I would often get together at my brother’s house in the Redwoods of Northern California. Being there with them, looking up at these giant trees that were there long before we were, looking up at the Milky Way, looking out at the Pacific Ocean – it just gave me a sense of perspective and how connected we all are to everything.” You get a sense of that connection with this dark, dramatic, widescreen first shared track from the album.

POLICA – “SEA WITHOUT BLUE”

Polica’s new album When We Stay Alive comes out next Friday, and here’s another early taste of it, the slightly glitchy “Sea Without Blue.”

EZRA FURMAN – “EVERY FEELING”

As you might recall, Ezra Furman wrote original songs for Netflix series Sex Education and the soundtrack for the first two seasons is out this Friday digitally via Bella Union. Ahead of that here’s “Every Feeling” which Ezra says was inspired by a bad bout of depression: “I was so bored of having these feelings year after year, I just wanted to feel them all and get them over with.”

SMOKE FAIRIES – “CHEW YOUR BONES”

Dark, folky UK duo Smoke Fairies are back with new album Darkness Brings the Wonders Home which will be out January 31. Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies made the record in Seattle with producer Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Shins, Modest Mouse) and the album title comes from the song “Chew Your Bones” which has just been released as a single. “I needed to write about the growing feeling that the world is on the verge of real change, there is the sense that there is this scary, unknown future lurking just beyond us,” says Jessica. “We’d just adopted a cat and were told to keep him inside because the Croydon Cat Killer had just struck in the area. This sanctioned belief of a mythical killer lurking the streets was terrifying and intriguing. At the same time I was reading Sarah Perry’s gothic, Victorian novel ‘The Essex Serpent’ about a fabled beast that stalks the Essex backwaters. Both these tales came together to help me finish the song.”

WYE OAK – “FEAR OF HEIGHTS”

Next month Wye Oak embark on a tour, JOIN, featuring an expanded lineup of the band. Ahead that they’ve been sharing new singles, and here’s the second, “Fear of Heights.” “This song’s central metaphor likens the deepening of a relationship to the feeling of ascending to the top of a very tall place,” Jenn Wasner says. “There’s something to be seen (or learned, or experienced) once you arrive, but for some there is also a fear that increases with every step upwards. You say it’s worth it for the view, but it’s impossible to know if that’s true until you get there to see it with your own eyes.”

THE FROGS – “HELLSVILLE BABY”

Cult band The Frogs will release 1st, which collects their never-before-released first studio recording session from January 1986, on April 3 via End Of All Music. The 12 songs were recorded in a single night, all one takes, at Nexus Recording Studio in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Here’s one of those songs which Jimmy Flemion says is about “Seeing beyond the scope of your own existence, beyond the community of which you are birthed, your tiny town, solely existing, moving forward, searching, realizing, hell is where the heart iz.”

PORCHES – “DO U WANNA”

Porches’ new album, Ricky Music, will be out in March and frontman Aaron Maine says this single is“about looking at yourself and realizing the disparity between how you’d like to act and how you actually act. The fun you vs. the isolated you. I feel like with the refrain I’m almost taunting myself to get up and do something.”
