Charli XCX, Yaeji, Clairo

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…

RICO NASTY – “FASHION WEEK”

New York Fashion Week is underway, and in conjunction with that, Rico Nasty dropped a new song called “Fashion Week.” Rico’s been one of the most promising new rappers around for a while, and this new song is even more proof that her rise is unstoppable.

SPOON – “SHAKE IT OFF”

Spoon released “No Bullets Spent,” the requisite (but in this case pretty good) new song on a Greatest Hits album, for the recently out Everything Hits at Once: The Best of Spoon. The 7″ single of “No Bullets Spent” featured another new song, “Shake it Off” on the flip, that that’s now available to stream.

THE COMET IS COMING – “LIFEFORCE PART II”

Genre-defying space-jazz trio The Comet Is Coming (who count Shabaka Hutchings of Sons of Kemet as a member) are releasing a mini-LP called The Afterlife, which is a companion piece to this year’s great On Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. It comes out September 27 via Impulse! and the first single is “Lifeforce Part II,” which is as funky and psychedelic as you’d hope for from this band.

BAT FOR LASHES – LOST GIRLS (ALBUM STREAM)

Natasha Khan’s fifth album as Bat for Lashes finds her exploring synthesizers and bright textures more than ever before.

STORMZY – “SOUNDS OF THE SKENG”

UK rapper Stormzy has been dropping some pretty great singles this year, and the new “Sounds of the Skeng” is no different. Sir Spyro provides him with dark, booming production, and Stormzy sounds absolutely menacing over it.

FOALS – “THE RUNNER”

Foals have shared another new song, a funky rock number titled “The Runner,” from the second volume of their two-part 2019 album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, which is out October 18. “It’s a call to find a sense of purpose & perseverance despite the odds & despite the troubles we may find inside or outside ourselves,” says frontman Yannis Philippakis.

SPORTING LIFE – “CRUX” (ft. MIKE & WIKI)

NYC beatmaker Sporting Life has shared a song off his upcoming Black Diamond EP (due 9/27), which features two great rappers from NYC’s underground, MIKE and Sporting Life’s former Ratking groupmate Wiki. Sporting Life gives “Crux” a warped, psychedelic backdrop, and it’s — not surprisingly — the perfect fit for Wiki and MIKE.

L’ÉPÉE (LIMINANAS / BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE) – DIABOLIQUE (ALBUM STREAM)

French band The Liminanas have worked with Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe before, but here they team for a new band, L’Epee, that also includes Emmanuelle Seigner of Ultra Orange. The groups’s debut album, Diabolique, is a homage to Mario Bava’s classic spy flick Danger Diabolik and it is groovy, garagey stuff in a decidedly French way. Dig.

PROPHETS OF RAGE – “POP GOES THE WEAPON”

Prophets of Rage (the supergroup that features Chuck D, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, B-Real and DJ Lord) have a new single out today that looks at America’s gun violence epidemic. “‘Pop Goes The Weapon’ reflects the ongoing gun violence happening in America,” says B Real. “Guns are both the subject of religious worship AND huge profits in the United States,” added Tom Morello. “Combined with emboldened white nationalism the recent epidemic of massacres is little surprise. ‘Pop Goes The Weapon’ channels our ‘thoughts & prayers’ through Marshall stacks & microphones.”

CHARLI XCX – “FEBRUARY 2017″ (FEAT. YAEJI & CLAIRO)

GOGO PENGUIN – “TIME-LAPSE CITY”

GoGo Penguin are releasing a new EP, Ocean in a Drop: Music for Film, on October 4 via Blue Note, and the first taste is “Time-Lapse City.” The UK trio have long been honing a live-band sound that mimics electronic music, and this hypnotic new song is a great example of what they do.

MELII – “NO HARD FEELINGS”

Rising Harlem rapper/singer Melii is gearing up for a a tour with Summer Walker, and ahead of that, she follows her debut album phAses with the new single “No Hard Feelings.” It’s a chilled-out song that finds Melii in R&B mode, and it’s very cool stuff.

DAWN RAY’D – “RAISE THE FLAILS”

Liverpool black metallers Dawn Ray’d are releasing their new album Behold Sedition Plainsong on October 25th via Prosthetic Records, and it seems like the political band’s message will be just as strong as ever on this one. A press release calls it “a call to arms and a potential catalyst for positive radical change,” and then continues, “The first audio from the album [comes] in the form of the evocative album intro, “Raise The Flails,” with its rallying cry – ‘It’s time for new tales of resistance.'” It’s clearly just an intro-type song, but it already sounds promising.

NILE – “LONG SHADOWS OF DREAD”

Nile had been talking about a new album, and then they announced a tour with Terrorizer, leaving us wondering if we would know more about the album before that tour, and now we know more about the album! It’s called Vile Nilotic Rites, and it comes out November 1 via Nuclear Blast (the same day the tour starts in Atlanta). Your first taste is the ferocious “Long Shadows of Dread.”

TEGAN AND SARA – “HEY, I’M JUST LIKE YOU”

LIFE OF AGONY – “LAY DOWN”

Life of Agony have debuted the second single off their upcoming album The Sound of Scars, a concept record which picks up where the story of LOA’s classic 1993 debut River Runs Red left off. Of the new song, bassist Alan Robert says, “It’s an anthem for survivors. We’ve all been through situations in our lives where everything seems completely hopeless. ‘Lay Down’ is about believing in yourself when no one else will. Times when you really have to dig down deep to find that that last ounce of strength to keep on going.”

MY LIFE STORY – ‘WORLD CITIZEN‘ (ALBUM STREAM)

Led by Jake Shillingford, My Life Story were a Britpop era band who leaned heavily on witty wordplay and foppy, baroque style, not unlike (but not as good as) The Divine Comedy. They’ve reformed and just released their first album in 22 years.

BJÖRK – “FEATURES CREATURES” (FEVER RAY REMIX), BJÖRK – “FEATURES CREATURES” (THE KNIFE REMIX), FEVER RAY – “THIS COUNTRY” (BJÖRK REMIX)

BLINK-182 – “I REALLY WISH I HATED YOU”

POST MALONE – “TAKE WHAT YOU WANT” (ft. OZZY OSBOURNE & TRAVIS SCOTT)

Post Malone’s new album is out today, and as much of a punchline as Posty can be, it’s got some bangers. This is not one of those bangers, but you’ve gotta be curious to hear the song he managed to land Ozzy Osbourne on.
