24 New Songs Out Today

Vivian Girls
Vivian Girls

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…

FREDDIE GIBBS & MADLIB – “THE NEXT DAY” (ft. OH NO)

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib already released their excellent collaborative album Bandana this year, and now they’re back with another new single, “The Next Day.” It features Madlib’s brother Oh No, and it’s a loud, hard, head-nodding song that pairs well with the songs on Bandana.

CLIPPING. – “NOTHING IS SAFE”

clipping. — the trio of rapper Daveed Diggs (who was in Hamilton until 2016) and producers William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes — are releasing their fourth album and first in three years, There Existed an Addiction to Blood, on October 18 via Sub Pop. The first single is the mind-bending “Nothing Is Safe.”

CHELSEA WOLFE – “BE ALL THINGS”

Two days ago, Chelsea Wolfe released an ASMR video of herself reading the lyrics to her new single “Be All Things,” and now the song and its video (filmed by her frequent collaborator Ben Chisholm in Iceland) is here. Chelsea says the song “is about navigating the world as a woman: reconciling the soft and the strong, balancing the warrior and the goddess, and wanting to be everything and nothing at the same time,” and the video “is a culmination of footage taken in a few magical locations.” Her new album Birth of Violence comes out September 13 via Sargent House.

(SANDY) ALEX G – “NEAR”

(Sandy) Alex G just shared the folky “Southern Sky,” from his forthcoming House of Sugar, yesterday and he’s already back with another. “Near” is much more psychedelic, with layers of glitchy production, voices and instruments that is a little more in Animal Collective territory.

VIVIAN GIRLS – “SOMETHING TO DO”

Reunited and now living in Los Angeles, Vivian Girls will release Memory, their first album in eight years, next month, and here’s a second track off the LP. “Something to Do” is a hazy jam where Vivian Girls’ signature harmonies combine with the noisy guitars.

HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER – “CAT’S EYE BLUE”

Hiss Golden Messenger’s MC Taylor wrote “Happy Birthday, Baby” for his daughter’s fifth birthday. “It’s mostly a love letter to her, part apology, part plea for forgiveness, and part recounting of the day she was born, when all the roads boiled over with rainwater and thunder and lightning filled the air,” Taylor tells Rolling Stone. “There are also many secret things in this song that only my family knows about.” For those not in Taylor’s family, it works as just a pretty present of a song, that you could almost imagine Prince singing. It’s on Hiss Golden Messenger’s new album, Terms of Surrender, which is out in September.

ANNA OF THE NORTH – “PLAYING GAMES”

Scandinavian indie pop artist Anna of the North is preparing her sophomore album, and she’s shared another new track, “Playing Games,” which delivers synthy 80s vibes.

COUSIN STIZZ – “ANONYMOUS” (ft. SMINO)

Cousin Stizz’s new album Trying To Find My Next Thrill is out now. It features his recent Freddie Gibbs and City Girls collabs, and you can hear the Smino collab now too. It’s a great meeting of two great minds, and very much lives up to expectation.

JEREMY IVEY – “GREYHOUND” (ft. MARGO PRICE)

Jeremy Ivey’s new Margo Price-produced album The Dream and the Dreamer comes out September 13 via ANTI-, and this new single — which is the most traditional country sounding song we’ve heard off this LP yet — also features Margo singing with him.

ANTAGONIZE – SLIP DEATH (EP STREAM)

Bane are no more, but lead shouter Aaron Bedard is now fronting a new band, Antagonize, and — following a demo and a two-song promo last year — they have now released their first proper EP on Triple B Records. It’s eight tracks of short, fast, and loud hardcore, and there’s mostly no frills but it finds a little time for a flashy guitar solo here and a slowed-down breakdown there. It’s cool stuff.

BRITTANY HOWARD – “HE LOVES ME”

Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard is releasing her first solo album, Jamie, on September 20; the latest single is the soulful “He Loves Me,” which she says “is a very important track on my record. It is a song I deeply want to share to help others realize loving and being loved by God doesn’t have to look the same for everyone. When my older sister passed away, it took its toll on our family. We grew apart from one another and therefore, we grew apart from our family church. I thought God had intended to hurt us or punish us, but I later realized that I found God in music and I found God in my voice. I learned that He always had a plan for myself and my family. That is what ‘He Loves Me’ is about. It is my greatest realization that He has never left me. All those years that I had turned away, I was still receiving His absolute love and forgiveness.”

SKULL PRACTITIONERS – “THE BEACON”

New York trio Skull Practitioners, led by Jason Victor (who also currently plays in The Dream Syndicate), make skronky garage punk from the same tradition as early Nick Cave or Gun Club. The group’s debut EP will be out next week via In the Red and you can check out bluesy ripper “The Beacon” now.

THE HECKS – “MY STAR”

Chicago quartet The Hecks began in 2012 as the duo of Andy Mosiman and Zach Hebert, but soon drafted in guitarist Dave Vettraino for their scratchy, dour 2016 debut. But it was the much more recent addition of keyboardist Jeff Graupner who made the biggest impact on The Hecks’ sound, taking them into a sunnier world of synthesizers and drum machines for their forthcoming My Star which will be out October 11 on Trouble in Mind. The Hecks are still very DIY but are doing it themselves with a more new wave set of instruments, as you can hear on the twitchy pop of “My Star.”

HANGMAN – “ONE MISTAKE”

Long Island hardcore band Hangman are releasing their debut full-length, One By One, on September 20 via Flatspot Records, and the tough-as-nails new single “One Mistake” is out now.

JEEZY – “MLK BLVD” (ft. MEEK MILL)

Jeezy will complete his Thug Motivation series with TM104: The Legend Of The Snowman on August 23 via Def Jam, and its new single is “MLK BLVD” featuring Meek Mill. It finds Jeezy in the same menacing, fired-up mode that he made many of his classics in, and Meek Mill goes pretty hard on it himself.

FATHER – “A LOT ON UR PLATE”

Awful Records artist Father is back with another of his charmingly weird singles, and he also announced a fall headlining tour beginning in LA on 9/26 at Catch One and ending in Brooklyn on 10/15 at Elsewhere (all dates and tickets here).

LIGHTNING BOLT – “AIR CONDITIONING”

Noise rockers Lightning Bolt are releasing their new album Sonic Citadel in October, and you can hear the first single now and read more about it here.

THE MUFFS – “A LOVELY DAY BOO HOO”

Alt-rock/punk vets The Muffs are gearing up to release what appears to be their most ambitious album yet, so it makes sense that the first single is a noticeable departure from the punchy, punky alt-rock that most people associate with The Muffs. It’s a jangly ballad, and you can read more about it here.

SHOCK NARCOTIC – I HAVE SEEN THE FUTURE AND IT DOESN’T WORK (ALBUM STREAM)

Grind supergroup Shock Narcotic (who include current and former members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Dahlia Murder, Child Bite and Battlecross among their ranks) are releasing their debut album (which includes guest vocals from Dylan Walker of Full of Hell) this Friday but you can stream it now and read more about it here.

PAT (JACOLBY SATTERWHITE & NICK WEISS) – “WE ARE IN HELL WHEN WE HURT EACH OTHER”

PAT is the collaborative project of acclaimed visual artist Jacolby Satterwhite, who most recently worked on Solange’s visual album that accompanied her new record When I Get Home, and Teengirl Fantasy’s Nick Weiss. The project takes its name from Satterwhite’s mother Patricia, who suffered from schizophrenia, died in 2016 and left behind hundreds of acapella recordings on cassette tapes, as well as drawings. Satterwhite and Weiss took those recordings, sampled them and manipulated them, added beats and orchestration, turning them into something new.

ALLAH LAS – “POLAR ONION”

Allah-Las‘ new album, LAHS, is out October 11 and they’ve just shared a new song from it. “Polar Onion” avoids they typical ’60s style points (surfy leads, 12-string guitars) for a pretty, melancholy vibe that still feels like paisley pop.

STEREOLAB – “THE FLOWER CALLED NOWHERE (INSTRUMENTAL)”

Stereolab‘s next round of expanded album reissues — Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots & Loops, and Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night — are out September 13 and they’ve just shared one of the Dots & Loops bonus cuts, an instrumental version of the harpsichord-led “The Flower Called Nowhere.”
