23 New Songs Out Today

Smino Trina

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…

SMINO – “TRINA”

Smino follows the debut single from Ghetto Sage (his trio with Noname and Saba) with his second solo single of 2019, “Trina.” Produced by Kenny Beats and Lido, it’s got more of a bounce than Smino’s music usually has, and it comes with a video that’s nearly in sketch comedy territory.

TINASHE – “DIE A LITTLE BIT” (ft. MS BANKS)

Having parted ways with RCA earlier this year, R&B singer Tinashe put out her first independent single, and it sees her crooning over a bass-heavy club beat. It’s cool stuff.

ST. VINCENT – “SLOW DISCO” (EOD REMIX)

The EOD remix of “Slow Disco” from St. Vincent’s upcoming MASSEDUCTION remix album has been released, and we wrote more about it here.

KAMAAL WILLIAMS – THREE NEW SONGS

Jazz/electronic blender Kamaal Williams has shared three new exclusive tracks from his upcoming DJ-Kicks mix, following the previously released “Wivout U” (which came out under his Henry Wu moniker). The best of them is the sax-fueled, live-in-Atlanta version of “Snitches Brew,” where Kamaal perfectly blends both his jazz and electronic sides. Then there’s the gorgeous, piano-led “Shinjuku” and the rubbery, bass-fueled “Strings” (ATL).

DOJA CAT – “RULES”

Doja Cat’s new album Hot Pink drops November 8 via RCA, and following recent single “Bottom Bitch” comes new single “Rules.” Both the song and video (which is a mock Western where Doja Cat gets very intimate with a snake) are overflowing with swagger, and the whole thing looks and sounds like a million bucks.

EX-VÖID (ex-JOANNA GRUESOME) – “ONLY ONE” & “EX-VÖID”

Ex-Vöid, the new band from onetime Joanna Gruesome members Alanna McArdle and Owen Williams, have a new single out via Prefect Records, a label which was started by the band and Mark Dobson of Sarah Records cult heroes The Field Mice. “Only One” is jangly, supercatchy indiepop, while “Ex-Vöid” is a shouty punk ripper. Both are terrific.

WARMDUSCHER – “BURNER” FT KOOL KEITH

Warmduscher, the gleefully sleazy UK band led by Clams Baker (Paranoid London) that also includes Saul Adamczewski and Jack Everett (both of Insecure Men/Fat White Family), Ben Romans-Hopcraft (Childhood), and Quinn Whalley (also of Paranoid London), have shared their Kool Keith collaboration from their upcoming album Tainted Lunch. Kool Keith delivers a typically out-there feature and fits right into Warduscher’s weird world. The album, which also features Iggy Pop, is out November 1.

MUSEUM MOUTH – “END OF DAYS REPRISE”

Museum Mouth, who are on tour now with Max Bemis and Perma, are planning to release their first new album since 2016’s Popcorn Fish Guinea Pig in 2020 on Tiny Engines, and while you wait for that, they’ve just released their first new single in three years, “End of Days Reprise.” It’s exactly the kind of catchy indie-punk this band has always done so well, and there’s still no one in the world with a voice like the highly unique Karl Kuehn. It’s great to have MM back.

KESHA – “RAISING HELL” (ft. BIG FREEDIA)

Kesha’s new album High Road comes out January 10 via Kemosabe/RCA, and it includes a song called “Resentment” that features both Brian Wilson and Sturgill Simpson, as well as this new single “Raising Hell” which features bounce queen Big Freedia. Following the more organic sounding Rainbow, “Raising Hell” is sort of a return to synthy danceable Kesha, but with new musical and lyrical perspective, and it’s got a pounding rhythm section that’s perfect for Freedia.

GRAND FASCINATIONS CHORUS – “BACK AGAIN”

Jersey City duo Grand Fascinations Chorus make bright, cheery orch-pop as steeped in the early ’70s as the earth-toned outfits they wear on the cover of their upcoming album Presentations of Electrical Confections that’s out next week. “Back Again” is perfect for your next fondue party.

XYLOURIS WHITE – “ASCENSION”

“Ascension / It’s not obsession, it’s persistence” George Xylouris sings (in Greek) on Xylouris White’s new song “Ascension” which goes right to the heart of the themes of their new album, The Sisypheans. As does the music video, which does not feature any boulder rolling, but is filled with the repetitive mundanity we face in life.”

LEONARD COHEN – “HAPPENS TO THE HEART”

There’s a new, posthumous Leonard Cohen albumThanks for the Dance, that will be out November 22 via Columbia. Cohen’s son Adam took song sketches his father had written or recorded, and fleshed them out, inviting a whole host of other artists to contribute, including Beck, Feist, the National’s Bryce Dessner, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, Damien Rice, Daniel Lanois, s t a r g a z e, and others. “Happens to the Heart” is the kind of gorgeous, folk noir song that is Cohen’s signature.

COLDPLAY – “ORPHANS” / “ARABESQUE”

The first two songs from Coldplay’s upcoming “more experimental” double album have been released, and one (“Arabesque”) features Femi Kuti and Stromae. You can read more here.

THE 1975 – “FRAIL STATE OF MIND”

The second single from The 1975’s Notes On A Conditional Form is here, and it sees The 1975 going in an electronic direction following the shouty post-punk of “People.” Read more here.

BEDTIMEMAGIC – “SNORE SNORE SNORER”

“Snore Snore Snorer” is the latest single from sludgy post-hardcore two-piece BEDTIMEMAGIC, and you can read more about it here.

TAN COLOGNE – “CAVE VAULTS ON THE MOON IN NEW MEXICO”

Tan Cologne, the duo of Lauren Green (ex Mirror Travel) and interdisciplinary artist Marissa Macias, are undeniably a New Mexico group and their hometown of Taos informs their dusty, sun-baked brand of dreampop with elements of ancient mysticism, alien visitors and desert topography. This is the title track from their debut album that’ll be out February 14 via Swedish label Labrador.

LAKE RUTH – “STRANGE INTERIORS”

Lake Ruth are releasing a new 7″ for Slumberland Records’ SLR30 Singles Series, a subscription club in celebration of the great indie label’s 30th anniversary. You may have already heard “Extended Leave” and now here’s the flip, “Strange Interiors,” which is groovy, baroque psychedelia at its best. Fans of Broadcast and The Soundcarriers, this is right up your alley.

SQUIRREL FLOWER – “RED SHOULDER”

Squirrel Flower signed to Polyvinyl for her debut LP I Was Born Swimming and shared its first single, “Red Shoulder,” which we wrote more about here.
