26 New Songs Out Today

Holly Herndon
Holly Herndon

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…

HOLLY HERNDON – “FRONTIER”

We’re just a week away from Holly Herndon’s anticipated new album PROTO (due 5/10 via 4AD), and she’s now gifted us with a third single from it. This album sees Holly working with an AI entity she created, as well as an ensemble of vocalists, and this choral new song very much shows off that ensemble. It’s like nothing we’ve ever heard from her, and it’s stop-you-in-your-tracks awesome.

THE SONDER BOMBS – “I DON’T HAVE ONE ANYMORE”

The Sonder Bombs are back with their first single since their great 2018 debut album MODERN FEMALE ROCKSTAR. The song is named after the Lady Gaga quote “My threshold for bullshit from men is… I don’t have one anymore” and the song starts with a sample of Gaga saying that very quote, and the song is exactly the kind of powerful, catchy indie pop punk that The Sonder Bombs did so well on their debut. Singer Willow Hawks said:

The first 7 seconds of the track pretty much sums up what this song means to me (love you, Gaga). I’m pretty bored with the same 4-6 dude lineup, writing the same mediocre 12 song record where 11 out of 12 tracks are just complaining about the guy’s ex-girlfriend and then going out on tour with 4 other versions of the same band. I’m bored with being told that the men, not just in the music industry but everywhere, are the ones who can actually make things happen in my career or the ones who hold all the power. I’m bored with men giving more men the real platforms and saying “it just worked out that way.” I don’t really have a threshold for that bullshit anymore.

CATE LE BON – “THE LIGHT”

We’re still a few weeks away from the release of Cate Le Bon’s new album, Reward, but she’s just shared a third track from the record. As she’s said, the songs here came from “playing the piano to yourself and singing into the night” and this is on the quiet side, but there’s also some of her skronky side present, too.

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS – “BLACK STAR DANCING”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, who will be on tour with The Smashing Pumpkins this summer, have just announced a new EP titled Black Star Dancing which will be out June 14. “Dancing” is a descriptor, too, as this is a full-on disco groover. Says Noel, in typically humble fashion, “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS! … I might have been watching too much Top Of The Pops recently … anyway, it’s ‘dope’ … not my words, but the words of Nile Rodgers who literally danced in the studio when he heard it!”

CALEXICO AND IRON & WINE – “MIDNIGHT SUN”

Calexico and Iron & Wine are releasing their first joint full-length album, and the second single from it, “Midnight Wine,” is about what you’d expect from the two bands, a folk tune with plenty of pedal steel twang and vocal harmonies. Calexico’s Joey Burns says, “Sam [Beam] sent some demos the week before we met to record the album. Based on the feel of those demos I wrote the song ‘Midnight Sun’ the day I got to Nashville. I arrived at our rental house the day before everyone else and was happy to find a piano, old pump organ and guitar to do some writing. I was up late and came up with a tune that would bridge both bands’ worlds. I started with a drone in F# and was curious as to where it would take me.”

BIG|BRAVE – “HOLDING PATTERN”

BIG|BRAVE have shared another single from their upcoming fourth album A Gaze Among Them, which drops next week (5/10) via Southern Lord. As is usually the case with this band, the new song is genre-defying and impossible to pigeonhole, pulling from goth, industrial, post-rock, and more, and it’s all tied together by the stunning vocals of Robin Wattie.

FUJIYA & MIYAGI – “PERSONAL SPACE”

Fujiya & Miyagi have gotten a lot of mileage out a their very specific style, which mixes electronic dance music, motorik krautrock a la Neu! and frontman David Best’s distinctive, hushed vocal style. It’s still in fine form on Flashback, the band’s eighth album, as you can hear on the slinky, minimal funk of “Personal Space,” that is inviting while trying to keep us at arm’s length.
