23 New Songs Out Today

Daphni

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…

DAPHNI (CARIBOU) – SIZZLING (EP STREAM)

Dan Snaith is back with a new EP of full-on, four-on-the-floor disco via his Daphni pseudonym. You may have heard SIZZLING‘s title track — a remix/edit of “Sizzlin’ Hot” by Paradise – but the other three tracks are bangers too.

CAROLINE POLACHEK (EX-CHAIRLIFT) – “DOOR”

Having released an ambient album as CEP and an record as Ramona Lisa,, former Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek is plotting a proper solo career. “I feel totally out of control of most things in the world, but can at least build landscapes for the mind,” she told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe today, announcing her effervescent new single “Door.” She co-wrote it with Dan Nigro, PC Music maestro Danny L Harle, and Jim-E Stack and directed its video:

VIOLENT FEMMES – “ANOTHER CHORUS”

Violent Femmes plea for brevity on the new single from their upcoming Hotel Last Resort. “Please don’t sing another chorus / that’s the thing that really bores us.” Lest you think they don’t take their own advice to heart, “Another Chorus” is is only two-and-a-half minutes long.

GAUCHE – “FLASH”

Gauche, the DC group which includes members of Priests and Downtown Boys, have released another track from their debut album — a hooky new wave / post-punk style number “Flash” that looks at shortcuts in life. “The flash of a camera flattens a scene. It makes the colors pop, but it also makes reality 2D,” says the band’s Daniele Yandel. “To see true depth, you have to wait for your eyes to adjust to the darkness. You can’t cheat time. That’s what a flash is: a way of cheating time and vision, and like all attempts to cheat, it cheapens the experience. It distorts the depth and detail of the scene captured. To truly take it in, you have to wade into the darkness and wait. Slowly, the scene lightens of its own accord, and the shadows appear. Shadows reveal truth. Shadows are how you see when you’re really in it.” A People’s History of Gauche is out July 12 via Merge.

BE ALL END ALL – “DIVIDEND”

Florida hardcore crew Be All End All is releasing the Object To Persona LP in July via Triple B Records, and they’ve now shared the absolutely ass-kicking “Dividend.”

MAJOR LAZER – “MAKE IT HOT” (ft. ANITTA)

Major Lazer have been prepping a new album, and while there’s still no concrete word on that, today they released a new single featuring past collaborator Anitta. She says, “It’s amazing when you work in synergy with someone who completes you artistically. Having the opportunity to write/compose another song with Major Lazer was really special. We have developed this energy that is similar to being around family and close friends when we work together. It’s good to be able to bounce ideas off each other and that’s something that happens naturally now. I think it’s difficult for anyone to listen to this song and remain still.”

METRONOMY – “SALTED CARAMEL ICE CREAM”

SPOON – “NO BULLETS SPENT”

It’s a rule that all best-of compilations must include a new song. Will “No Bullets Spent” hold its place on Spoon’s new greatest hits comp? Only time will tell, but it doesn’t tarnish their image.

SUN KIL MOON – “LOVIN’ YOU” (MINNIE RIPERTON COVER) (LIVE)

Mark Kozelek’s take on Minnie Riperton’s classic falsetto-laden single doesn’t quite hit her high notes, but he also doesn’t embarrass himself. This is a new double-live Sun Kil Moon album out in August.
