Bill Fay
Bill Fay

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…

BILL FAY – “FILLED WITH WONDER ONCE AGAIN”

Famed and enigmatic British singer-songwriter Bill Fay will release new album Countless Branches on January 17 via Dead Oceans. The first single is the lovely, rather magical “Filled With Wonder Once Again” and comes with a video directed and animated by Emily Scaife who says: “I wanted to create a dreamy, warm world that melted reality into abstraction and filled the audience with wonder, while conveying themes of cycles/phases – both of the tree (inspired by Bill’s Countless Branches) as well as the planet more generally. I combined several techniques: hand-drawing shapes and parents in nature; animal skins, organic textures, and coloured gels and slides on overhead projectors to produce soft dappled washes of light.”

ANNA CALVI – “YOU’RE NOT GOD”

Anna Calvi did the score for the new season of Peaky Blinders and she recorded a few songs specifically for it too, including a cover of FKA twigs’ “Papi Pacify,” and “You’re Not God” which smolders just of the edge of bursting into flames. The Peaky Blinders soundtrack is out Friday, November 15.

SPOON – “INSIDE OUT (DEMO)”

Spoon released their first-ever Best-Of compilation earlier this year, and they’ve now shared a demo version of one of its songs, “Inside Out.” It’s just Britt Daniel and a piano and brings a totally different flavor to the song.

SMOKE DZA & CURREN$Y – “3 MINUTE MANUAL”

Longtime collaborators and fellow makers of weed-conducive throwback rap, Smoke DZA and Curren$y are releasing the joint project Prestige Worldwide on November 29 via RFC/Jet Life/Cinematic. The first single is “3 Minute Manual,” which manages to be simultaneously chilled-out and menacing.

OKAY KAYA – “BABY LITTLE TWEEN”

NYC-via-Norway artist Kaya Wilkins is releasing a new album as Okay Kaya, Watch This Liquid Pour Itself, due out on January 24. It’s her first album for Jagjaguwar, and follows her 2018 debut Both. She’s shared its first track, “Baby Little Tween,” which is accompanied by a video she directed with Adinah Dancyger. About the video, she says, “my friend Jimmy heard it early on and said, ‘You’re Norwegian, right, you ski. This makes me think about skiing down a mountain.’ ‘Ride the mood.’ And then my brain exploded. And it turned into this weird ski holiday with my pathetic little twin coming along for one (hopefully) last ride.”

PIEBALD – “(ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS TO) RAGE WITH MY FRIENDS”

Boston post-hardcore turned indie rock vets Piebald have been reunited since 2016, but they haven’t released new music since 2007 (not counting unearthed material from their initial run that came out alongside the reunion), but now they’re finally back with new music for the first time in 12 years in the form of… a Christmas EP. Stream the lead single and read more about the EP here.

FRANCIS LUNG – “TO MAKE ANGELS IN SNOW”

For even more indie Christmas music, here’s former WU LYF member Francis Lung’s “To Make Angels In Snow.” If you like Brian Wilson and Phil Spector’s Christmas music, you’ll probably like this festive, Wrecking Crew-esque song too.

THYLA – “LENOX HILL”

Brighton, UK quartet Thyla are following up their debut EP, What’s On Your Mind, from earlier this year, with another EP, Everything At Once, due out in January. From it they’ve shared the widescreen pop single “Lenox Hill,” about which frontwoman Millie Duthie says, “Lenox Hill is the hospital I was born in, with the track inspired by my early years as a kid living in New York City. It’s an honest and emotional coming-of-age tale. Life can take so many turns and you can forget where you came from and what makes you you. The important stuff like family can get set aside in the pursuit of whatever it is that drives you. ‘Lenox Hill’ is about realising you’re lost and deciding to go back to your roots to find the way again. I ran from home and my friends to do music but it’s only since I’ve started going back (literally and metaphorically speaking) that I feel like I’ve got a real shot at it. I studied ‘Authenticity In The Music Industry’ when I was doing my MA and the more I think about it the more I realise that you just can’t fake it and if you do and you ‘succeed’ it means nothing.”

PURR – “HARD TO REALIZE”

NYC duo Purr announced their debut album, Like New, due out February 21 via ANTI-. Foxygen member, Whitey producer and previous collaborator Jonathan Rado produced the album, including new single “Hard to Realize,” which will probably appeal to fans of both of those bands. “We wrote the songs that make up this album at the outset of a transitional and particularly uncertain moment in our lives,” Eliza Barry Callahan and Jack Staffen say. “That early twenties tide change. New patterns took hold as we tried to hang onto old ones. The songs each have their own stories — but at the time they were collectively written, we were dealing with a push and pull between dependence on and independence from people we love, and coming to terms with our own self-expectations. We were resisting and (sometimes) accepting of the inevitable changes in our relationships and friendships, a moment, a specific and strange time in our lives…and, of course, in this… world. That thread was just naturally pulled through the songs.”

LE SUPERHOMARD – SDVB EP

They’ve just released the motorik synthpop number “SDVB” as a single, complete with two instrumental b-sides. Listen to that, and watch the new “SDVB” video:

EMILY YACINA – “BLEACHERS”

Bedroom pop artist Emily Yacina shares another new single from her upcoming album, Remember the Silver, due out on December 6. About “Bleachers,” she says, “this song is about how people can stay in your life for a long time, and how losing them can feel like losing a part of your own identity.”

WYE OAK – “FORTUNE”

Wye Oak are back with a new single that’s one of the more immediately appealing tracks that they’ve released in a while. A lot of their music soars, but “Fortune” flies with a little more confidence, from Jenn Wasner’s multi-layered harmony to the big rock wordless chorus that rips the sky wide open.

RADIANT BABY – “THE ONE”

Montreal’s Radiant Baby make eccentric dancepop with a distinct Francophone flair. For the video for new single “The One,” Radiant Baby portrays a variety of different characters. Says director Ariel Poupart: “They sort of came to me as I was listening to the track. For each one of them, I wanted a subtle underlying love narrative that could transpire on top of the performance. Nothing too obvious but just enough to make you wonder “what the hell is going on?”
