Modest Mouse
Modest Mouse artwork

So many artists, so little time. Each week we review five 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…

MODEST MOUSE – “I’M STILL HERE”

Modest Mouse, who are touring with The Black Keys this year, recently released a stream of their heaviest song in a while, “Poison the Well,” which came out on Record Store Day backed by “I’m Still Here.” “I’m Still Here” is now streaming online too, and this one sees them ditching their usual style and trying on nervy ’70s punk.

DRUGDEALER – RAW HONEY (ALBUM STREAM)

On his first album for Mexican Summer, Drugdealer dive into the deep shag of ’70s yacht rock, with help from Mac DeMarco, Weyes Blood, and more. Pull up a beanbag chair and slip on some giant headphones.

VALEE – “YOU & ME BOTH”

Since releasing his great 2018 single “Womp Womp,” we’ve been waiting patiently for a debut album from Valee. No word on that yet, but he just returned with this blunted new single “You & Me Both.”

FROU FROU – “GUITAR SONG” (LIVE)

Imogen Heap and her Frou Frou partner Guy Sigsworth are reuniting on tour later this spring for the first time since 2003. To celebrate the occasion, they’ve shared an unreleased Frou Frou track, the first new music from the duo in 15 years. “So happy to be releasing dear ‘Guitar Song’ with Guy, as Frou Frou,” Imogen says. “We never really got to tour as Frou Frou that much but we are making up for it and opening every show on this World Tour we are on with this song.” Guy adds, “‘Guitar Song': It’s a song—with guitar! Easy, breezy and summery. Like João Gilberto playing shoegazer music. Or something :).”

DEAD TO A DYING WORLD – “VERNAL EQUINOX” (ft. JARBOE)

Dead To A Dying World’s excellent new album Elegy is out today (read our review), and one of its many treats is this gorgeous song where Swans/Neurosis collaborator Jarboe provides guest lead vocals.

OTOBOKE BEAVER – “BAD LUCK”

Japanese quartet Otoboke Beaver are a week away from releasing their anticipated new album, ITEKOMA HITS. About new single “Bad Luck,” they told The FADER, “大殺界 (daisakkai) or literally ‘big kill circle,’ is the worst level of ‘bad luck’ in the ‘rokusei senjutsu’ astrology system of fortune telling. It is a curse-like phrase, but we decided to sing it in a happy, light-hearted way because the pronunciation of the expression is fun. Fortune telling is popular in Japan (maybe many places). These fortunes seem to predict your life so specifically, ‘You will fall in love,’ ‘It will last three years,’ ‘It will end soon.’ So we used this idea of fortunes as a self-fulfilling prophecy, and to say don’t let ‘bad luck’ dictate how you live a fun life, make a fun life for yourself! Let go of unimportant people who bring you down and make your life feel like bad luck nonsense.”

ERICK SERMON – “THAT GIRL” (ft. BIG K.R.I.T. & RICCO BARRINO)

EPMD’s Erick Sermon recently released his single “My Style” (ft. Raekwon & Noreaga), and today that single appeared on his new album Vernia, which — among other things — also includes this soulful, funky song with modern Southern rap great Big K.R.I.T.

SHAMIR – BE THE YEE, HERE COMES THE HAW (ALBUM STREAM)

Philadelphia’s genre-defying Shamir released his fifth studio album, which has a very of-the-moment title. “Also dont nobody come for me for my album title as a trend follower,” he says in a tweet. “I have had at least one country song on every single album of mine since 2014’s Northtown before all you faggots started stanning banjos.”

MARK PETERS (ENGINEERS) – NEW ROUTES OUT OF INNERLAND (ALBUM STREAM)

Engineers frontman Mark Peters, who is a frequent collaborator with Ulrich Schnauss, released his gorgeous, ethereal solo debut, Innerland, last year. He’s now released New Routes out of Innerland which has the original’s tracks remixed by Schnauss, Moon Gangs, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Olga Wojciechowska, Disappears’ Brian Case, E Ruscha and more, taking things in drastically new directions.

SOAK – “COUNTRY AIR,” “LOVE IT IF WE MADE IT” (THE 1975 COVER)

Bridie Monds-Watson releases a new album as SOAK, Grim Town, a week from today on April 26, but the songs we have from her today aren’t on it. One, the gentle, whimsical “Country Air” is from the soundtrack to animated TV series Moominvalley. The second, a cover of The 1975’s “Love It if We Made It,” dials back some of the original’s manic intensity and replaces it with sheer loveliness. You can hear the cover at 1:25:47 on this episode of Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac.

DEAFKIDS & RAKTA – “FORMA/SIGILO”

Experimental, genre-defying, heavy Brazilian band Deafkids are touring North America with Neurosis this year, and recently released a new album on Neurosis’ Neurot Recordings. They also just began a Europe tour with fellow Brazilian band Rakta, and have released a 13-minute collaboration with Rakta to celebrate. It’s pretty fucking out-there, in a good way.

HARM’S WAY – “CALL MY NAME” (JUSTIN BROADRICK REMIX)

Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick has offered up an industrial-tinged remix of hardcore crew Harm’s Way’s “Call My Name,” turning the song into something even more evil than it was already.

LETTUCE – “KREWE”

Lettuce will release their new album Elevate in June, and lead single “Krewe” is a super catchy slice of instrumental funk that you can read more about here.

INJURY RESERVE – “KORUNA & LIME”

Injury Reserve officially announced their debut album and share third single “Koruna & Lime,” which we wrote more about here.

ROBYN – “BETWEEN THE LINES” (THE BLACK MADONNA REMIX)

The Black Madonna put her spin on “Between the Lines,” from Robyn’s excellent 2018 album, Honey.

THE RESONARS – NO EXIT (ALBUM STREAM)

Tucson’s The Resonars have been making ultra-hooky powerpop, inspired by ’60s/’90s Britpop, since the mid-’90s. Matt Rendon still has a way with a hook on their seventh album, No Exit, which is out via Chicago’s reliable Trouble in Mind Records.

FAT WHITE FAMILY – “FRINGE RUNNER”

Fat White Family sound downright friendly on their new album Serfs Up which is the most commercial thing they’ve ever released. (Lyrically, though, they’re still wallowing in filth.) Take this song, that swipes a bassline from Liquid Liquid and throws in some ’80s-style synth orchestra stabs for good measure.

STEALING SHEEP – “WHY HAVEN’T I?”

Liverpool, UK trio Stealing Sheep just released their third album, Big Wows, which features production and arrangements that are bright and shiny, much like their glittering outfits on the album art, with inventive percussion pinging around the mix that is as melodic as it is beat-driven. “Why Haven’t I?” is one of the album’s many standout cuts.

CARLY RAE JEPSEN – “JULIEN”

Wand fully leave the garage behind and head to the stratosphere on this sprawling, personal gamechanger of a record. “Evening Star” is one of the many gorgeous, soaring rock songs found within.

SHERYL CROW & JOHNNY CASH – “REDEMPTION DAY”

“This song has had a lot of different lives,” Sheryl Crow says of “Redemption Day,” which originally appeared on her 1996 self-titled album. Johnny Cash heard the song in 2003 and discussed it with Sheryl, leading him to record his own version that was released on his 2010 album American VI: Ain’t No Grave. Sheryl performed the song as a duet with Johnny’s recording while on tour in 2014, and now she’s re-recorded it as a collaboration of both of their voices.
