Tropical Fuck Storm

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…

TROPICAL FUCK STORM – “PARADISE”

“I’ve invented fake news as a genre of music,” says Tropical Fuck Storm singer/songwriter Gareth Liddiard of the Australian band’s forthcoming second album, Braindrops, which will be out August 23 via Joyful Noise / Flightless. TFS have not mellowed from their debut as you can hear on wigged-out new single “Paradise.” They’ll be on tour later this year.

DEVENDRA BANHART – “KANTORI ONGAKU”

Devendra Banhart will release new album, Ma, on September 13 via Nonesuch. The new single is the bouncy, piano-driven “Kantori Ongaku” which translates to “country music” and is an homage to Haruomi Hosono. The dreamlike video was made by Giraffe Studios. Catch him on tour this fall.

STEVE GUNN – “BE STILL MOON” & “SHRUNKEN HEADS”

Steve Gunn has shared two new songs, both outtakes from this year’s The Unseen In Between: “Be Still Moon” shows the influence of his friend and collaborator Michael Chapman, while “Shrunken Heads” is jazzy and just a little tropical.

BLARF (ERIC ANDRE?) – “BADASS BULLSHIT BENJAMIN BUTTONS BUTTHOLE ASSASSIN”

BLARF, who may or may not be Eric Andre, has shared the first song off his upcoming album Cease & Desist, due June 26 via Stones Throw. It’s more a collage of sounds than a “song,” and the Adult Swim stoner comedy-looking video follows suit. BLARF is playing LA on July 6 and Eric Andre thinks you should check out the show.

FLOATING POINTS – “LESALPX”

Floating Points has evolved from a DJ/electronic producer to leader of a jazz ensemble, but he returned to his dance music roots for his new 12″ single, “LesAlpx” / “Coorabell,” the A-side of which is out today. He says, “I started going back to my early records and all the sounds I loved playing at clubs like Fabric and Plastic People. I wanted to capture the immediacy of that music and the feeling that I got when I was on the dancefloor, of being immersed in a track that pulls you along instantly. I actually made these tracks quite quickly, which helped to get rid of any desire to overthink the music – it’s essentially the sound of me having loads of fun with the machines in my studio and going back to basics.”

HOUSE OF FEELINGS – “401K” (FT. KIP BERMAN)

Dance producers love to draft in rock musicians for singles and Brooklyn’s House of Feelings have enlisted Kip Berman of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and The Natvral to sing on this ebullient track that asks “Why should I pay for a 401K when I can’t get by today?”

CALEB GILES – “QUICKSAND” (ft. PINK SIIFU)

Bronx artist Caleb Giles plays saxophone in Standing on the Corner, and he’s also a rapper with a new project called Under The Shade coming soon. His new single “Quicksand” features likeminded underground rapper Pink Siifu, and it’s a very promising first taste of the new project.

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS – “DISAPPEAR”

Minneapolis punks Off With Their Heads will release their new album Be Good on August 16 via Epitaph, and new single “Disappear” is a dose of grizzled, raggedy punk with hints of heartland rock and alt-country in the mix too. (In other words, very Minneapolis.) The video for the song was directed by Jonah Ray and stars comedian Kyle Kinane.

MICHAEL KIWANUKA & TOM MISCH – “MONEY”

Michael Kiwanuka is back with one of his first songs since releasing 2016’s great Love & Hate, and it’s a disco-tinged collaboration with Tom Misch (who’s also fresh off collaborating with Loyle Carner and GoldLink). Kiwanuka told The FADER, “he premise of ‘Money’ is that, at first listen, it’s a song about money and how much I want it and love it. I want to use money to meet people and be around people that have a lot of it. But as you listen closer, it’s actually about how too much love for money can be dangerous.”

DRAB MAJESTY – “OXYTOCIN”

Gothy dreampop duo Drab Majesty have shared another track from their forthcoming album, Modern Mirror — the bouncing, shimmery “Oxytocin.” “The music was written on a demo rig by Deb while in the backstage of a Warsaw venue waiting to soundcheck,” says the band’s Mona D. “We were on tour with Kaelan Mikla and they were soundchecking while Deb offered this 2-chord repetitive idea that he later expounded upon to create to music for the song. Lyrically the track points to the salad days of a relationship and it’s fleeting energy – The games that are played to maintain the magic. ‘Oxytocin’ is this fleeting energy of the initial love bond – that seminal semi-permanent spark of enlightenment and obsession only to expire over the course of time and experience.”

LEDGE (ex-WEEKEND NACHOS) – “HANGED”

After Weekend Nachos broke up, frontman John Hoffman started Ledge and Ledge will release their second album, All I Hope For, on August 30 via Translation Loss. New single “Hanged” is an absolutely grimy blend of sludge, grind, and hardcore. “I decided All I Hope For needed to sound uglier,” Hoffman told Decibel. ” Less like an ugly dude at the gym and more like an ugly dude in a dumpster.”

SACRED REICH – “AWAKENING”

Phoenix thrash vets Sacred Reich have announced their first album in 23 years, Awakening, and you can read more about the just-released title track over at Invisible Oranges.

MOLLY BURCH – “ONLY ONE”

Having released First Flower last year, twangy singer-songwriter Molly Burch is back, prepping a 7″ titled Ballads which is out August 2 via Captured Tracks. “‘Only One’ was recorded at the same time as First Flower, but it didn’t quite make sense on the album. Both this and the B-side ‘Your Party’ fit together in a nice way, I think. I decided to call the 7” Ballads as an homage to the powerful female vocalists I idolized growing up. Seems sort of classic. Both songs really embody what I love to do – sing with emotion, and drama, and romance, taking as much time as I need.”

ALEX CAMERON – “DIVORCE”

“When you listen to these songs, and you’re waiting for the twist, or the joke, or any kind of discomfort, I can assure you none of those things were there when I wrote them,” says Cameron of new album Miami Memory. “These are true stories, of actual events. Specific but never esoteric. And graphic but never offensive. Miami Memory is the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values…It’s my gift to my girlfriend, a symbol to hoist on the totem of love.”

It’s called Both-And and will be out September 13 via Native Cat. The first single is “Wounded Brightness” which is tranquil and lovely till building to a psychedelic squall and then smash-cutting to black.
