24 New Songs Out Today

Ladytron
Ladytron

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…

LADYTRON – “FAR FROM HOME (DAVE THE HUSTLER REMIX)”

Ladytron released their first album in seven years back in February (it’s excellent) and ahead of their tour, they’re releasing a remix EP, titled Nite Versions, on August 30 featuring reworks by Lucas Frota, Blakkat, Dave the Hustler, Wetworks, plus Hiroko Yamamura and Eric Elvambuena. Swiss producer Dave the Hustler strips “Far From Home” down to it’s slinkiest elements and adds some ’80s-style gated drum fills for something a little more Miami Vice.

THE WHITE STRIPES – “LITTLE RED BOOK” (BURT BACHARACH COVER)

Burt Bacharach and Hal David may have written “Little Red Book” for the film What’s New Pussycat?, but Love’s version (their 1965 debut single) was clearly the inspiration for The White Stripes’ cover, which will be on the 20th Anniversary Box set for their debut album. Jack and Meg play this like they wrote it.

GUIDED BY VOICES – “HEAVY LIKE THE WORLD”

Guided by Voices are getting ready to release their third album of 2019 and Robert Pollard’s well of killer GBV jams is apparently endless, as the first single proves.

COUSIN STIZZ – “TOAST 2 THAT” (ft. FREDDIE GIBBS)

Boston rapper Cousin Stizz’s anticipated new album Trying to Find My Next Thrill comes out next week, and now he has shared the song featuring Freddie Gibbs. Gibbs has been on fire lately and this song is no exception, but Stizz has no trouble holding his own next to Gibbs. It’s the best song released from the new album yet.

ALEX THE ASTRONAUT – “I LIKE TO DANCE”

Australian musician and songwriter Alex the Astronaut shares new single “I Like to Dance,” which uses tuneful folk-pop to tell a haunting story of domestic violence. “‘I Like to Dance’ isn’t my story but one that I felt was important to sing,” Alex said on Facebook. She’s donating proceeds from the track to 1-800-RESPECT, a sexual assault, domestic and family violence counseling and information referral service hotline.

JAYE JAYLE – “SOLINE”

Jaye Jayle, the goth-Americana project of Young Widows’ Evan Patterson, is touring with Wovehand this year and he just shared a non-album cut from the sessions for last year’s No Trail and Other Unholy Paths, which features Cheyenne Mize on strings, Emma Ruth Rundle on guest vocals, and a choir. “It was a difficult choice to not include ‘Soline’ on our album,” Evan says. “Alas, the uplifting and almost gospel nature of the song just didn’t meld with the dark foliage of the record.” It’s still a lot darker than Evan makes it sound on paper, but we understand why it was difficult not to include it; this song is great.

CHASTITY BELT – “ELENA”

Seattle’s Chastity Belt have just shared a new song from their forthcoming self-titled album, due out September 20. “Elena” is placid and dreamy, with layers of tranquil guitars and complementary vocal parts. “Over the past year, we all read and loved Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels,” says bassist Annie Truscott. “We individually related to the ways in which the main character’s sense of self is inextricably linked to her desire for love and validation both from lovers and friends. The overlapping voices on top of the whimsical wave-like instrumentals captures the universal feeling of having a conversation with yourself about yourself.” Lovely stuff.

FAYE WEBSTER – “BOTH ALL THE TIME”

Atlanta singer-songwriter Faye Webster released her third album, Atlanta Millionaires Club, earlier this year, and ahead of a tour next month she’s shared a new Adult Swim Single, which melds a little country twang with soft rock saxophones for a sound that’s uniquely her.

COLLEEN GREEN – BLINK-182 COVERS

Fans of Colleen Green probably know that blink-182 has always been an influence on her lo-fi indie punk — she released a cover of “M+Ms” off their 1995 debut album Cheshire Cat back in 2010 — and now she is releasing a full covers album of their 1997 sophomore album Dude Ranch. She says that she actually first recorded the album in 2011 but lost it when her computer crashed, but now the idea is finally fully coming to fruition. You can listen to three of the covers now — “Dammit,” “Waggy,” and “I’m Sorry” — which Colleen drastically slowed down and recorded with just her voice and a distorted bass. It’s blink-182 like you’ve never heard them before, but the melodies remain untouched and these stripped-back renditions remind you how good blink were at writing pop songs even before the TRL days.

MALLRAT – “CHARLIE”

Rising Brisbane, Austalia alt-pop artist Mallrat is releasing a new EP, Driving Music, due out September 6. First single “Charlie” is named after her golden retriever, and its vivid, slightly melancholy vibes are reminiscent of Lorde.

DOMINANT FORCE – COSMIC DENIAL (EP STREAM)

Florida hardcore rippers Dominant Force returned today with a new 6-song EP on Triple B Records. They’ve gotten a lot of Cro-Mags comparisons, and you can hear that on Cosmic Denial, but they’re also turning into a force of their own. They’re melodic yet aggressive, and they manage to work in flashy ’80s metal leads without ever overstaying their welcome.

PHARMAKON – “SPIT IT OUT”

Pharmakon has shared the second single off her upcoming album Devour, which is due 8/30 via Scared Bones. “Spit It Out” sees Margaret Chardiet pairing harsh, stream-of-consciousness screams with static-y white noise and not a sign of a rhythm section. She’s also touring.

THE MESSTHETICS – “DROP FOOT”

The Messthetics, whose lineup includes Fugazi’s rhythm section, have shared another song off their upcoming album Anthropocosmic Nest (due 9/6 via Dischord). It’s a restless, instrumental song that bounces back and forth between the mathy art rock of Dischord’s ’90s era and the classic hardcore of the label’s early ’80s era.

DRY CLEANING – “GOODNIGHT”

UK band Dry Cleaning will release their debut EP, Sweet Princess, next week and have just shared another song from it. “Goodnight” is two minutes of bouncy noisy indie rock with singer Florence Shaw’s spoken word vocals atop. “The lyrics are a mixture of inner monologue, Youtube comments describing memories of songs, and phrases collected from adverts on tv,” says Shaw. “The Youtube comments represent strangers sharing poignant memories. The phrases from ads suggest our bodies are naturally disgusting, that we ought to work harder, and that our relationships might fail. Goodnight is partly about feeling fed up with these ideas, and partly about feeling uplifted by openness on the internet.”

HATER – “FOUR TRIES DOWN”

Swedish band Hater are gearing up for their first-ever North American tour, and to promote it they’ve got a new 7″ single that’s out September 6. Like on last year’s terrific Siesta, A-side “Four Tries Down” is dreamy guitar pop with a melancholy aura.

LINA TULLGREN – “SAIDDONE”

Lina Tullgren releases their sophomore album Free Cell on August 23 via Capture Tracks, and they’ve shared its final single, “Saiddone,” which is full of eclectic melodies and offbeat instrumentation.

YEESH – “VICTORY LAP”

Chicago trio Yeesh broke up in 2017 but before they did, they recorded a final album that is finally seeing the light of day next week. It’s knowingly titled Victory Lap, you can listen to the album’s angsty closing track, “Saw You Up There” now.

HOVVDY – “CATHEDRAL”

Austin duo Hovvdy will release their new album, Heavy Lifter, on October 18 via Double Whammy. You can get an early taste via first single and video, “Cathedral,” that blankets you, warm and comforting, in a drowsy sort of way.

EMPTY COUNTRY (CYMBALS EAT GUITARS) – “ULTRASOUND” (ft. THE WRENS) & “JETS”

Empty Country is a new project from Cymbals Eat Guitars frontman Joseph D’Agostino, and he just announced that he’ll release his debut album on Tiny Engines in 2020. Ahead of that though, he just shared his debut two-song single, “Ultrasound” / “Jets.” And making it even more exciting, “Ultrasound” features Charles Bissell of The Wrens. You can read more about the project here.

DEATH VALLEY GIRLS – “DREAM CLEAVER”

L.A. band Death Valley Girls are following up last year’s Darkness Rains with new single “Dream Cleaver” which throws a little new wave (and saxophone) into the group’s goth-garage-punk sound. While the title may have some thinking of Gary Wright’s mid-’70s prog pop hit, Death Valley Girls are trying to crack open their minds here.
