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…

JPEGMAFIA – “BETA MALE STRATEGIES”

JPEGMAFIA has shared another single off his anticipated new album All My Heroes Are Cornballs, which gets released later this week, and this one is especially warped and psychedelic.

VIVIAN GIRLS – “SLUDGE”

Back and living in L.A., former Brooklynites Vivian Girls have just released “Sludge” from their upcoming comeback album, Memory. It’s a good name for the song, as it’s thick sonic slurry flows slow. The video was directed by Alex Ross Perry who made this year’s acclaimed punk drama Her Smell. “I just counted: there are four different photos of Vivian Girls in the look book I made for Her Smell,” notes Perry. “So if you had told me when I was first seeing them at Death By Audio (or was it Union Pool?) in 2008 (or was it late 2007?) that over a decade later, we’d be collaborating on a music video, I would have been alarmed at the specificity of this prophecy.”

GREAT GRANDPA – “DIGGER”

Great Grandpa are taking what sounds like a very big leap from their DIY indie rock roots for their upcoming album Four of Arrows, though in the words of guitarist Dylan Hanwright, “It’s less of an evolution than it was a real representation of our interests.” The second single is “Digger,” which builds and explodes like post-rock but has the slight twang of alt-country. It’s yet another very promising taste of this new LP.

YVES TUMOR – “APPLAUD”

Yves Tumor took things to a new level for last year’s Safe In the Hands of Love, one of the best albums of 2018, and it looks like Tumor just keeps pushing forward. “Applaud” is like nothing on Safe In the Hands of Love, and it’s as immediately engaging as that album’s best songs.

OMNI – “SKELETON KEY”

OMNI will release Networker, their first album for Sub Pop, on November 1 and here’s a second track from it. “Skeleton Key” begins, surprisingly, with a riff that could’ve been from a ’70s Steely Dan album before heading into familiar, spiky Omni territory. “When Frankie and I wrote ‘Skeleton Key’ it felt like a turning point for our record, as though we had reached a new rock n roll echelon and Networker was truly underway. Lyrically this came together after hearing about some friends’ strange, surprising and sometimes hilarious online dating experiences.”

TWIN PEAKS – “OH MAMA”

Twin Peaks’ new album, Lookout Low, is out this week and finds them embracing ’70s rock influences. Here’s one last early taste before the whole thing drops. “We did three takes and used the first,” says Clay Frankel who sings lead on this one. “I had a loose plan for the lyrics. Some of them I made up as I went along. For the video we made a swamp bar. We hit a few costume shops in Chicago and got some stuff. We made things blue and sometimes gold and we hope you enjoy it.”

MOON DUO – “ETERNAL SHORE”

“We were experimenting with a lot of different rhythms for this record, and this one is in 5/8ths time, which is a real departure for us,” says Moon Duo’s Ripley Johnson of this slightly tropical track from their upcoming Stars Are the Light. “It moves us further away from the classic motorik beat. And it’s special because it’s the first song on which Sanae [Yamada] wrote the lyrics and sings lead.” Sanae adds, “The lyrics are about the search for a sense of belonging and for the truth of one’s inner being, beneath the masks we’re conditioned to wear in order to function in society.”

KATIE MALCO – “CREATURES”

UK singer/songwriter Katie Malco has inked a deal with 6131 (formerly home to Julien Baker, who Malco has toured the UK with), and her first single for the label is “Creatures,” a very appealing dose of melodic, grungy indie rock.

DRY CLEANING – “SIT DOWN MEAL”

UK group Dry Cleaning released Sweet Princess over the summer and they’ve already announced a second EP for 2019, titled Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks which will be out October 25. The first single is “Sit Down Meal,” which vocalist Fiona Shaw says is “set at the moment just after being suddenly dumped. You cling to details, things you did together and reel at their significance. If you smell their perfume on someone else you feel overwhelmed, but immediately and painfully aware of how lightning quick a relationship can evaporate into thin air.”

MICROWAVE – “MIRRORS”

Yesterday, we posted Microwave’s list of 10 songs that influenced their heavier new album, and today a new single off that album has been shared. It falls somewhere between ’90s grunge, ’00s post-hardcore, and ’10s emo-gaze, which is a pretty appealing place to be.

NYC antifolk great Jeffrey Lewis will release new album, Bad Wiring, on November 1 via Don Giovanni. Jeffrey and his band, who have been christened The Voltage, recorded the album in Nashville over a week with producer Roger Moutenot (who worked on much of Yo La Tengo’s most beloved output). Like YLT, Jeffrey is capable of beauty and rocking out, as “In Certain Orders” shows.

CLOAK – “INTO THE STORM”

Cloak have shared the second single off their anticipated sophomore album The Burning Dawn (due October 25th via Season of Mist), and like lead single “Tempter’s Call,” the new “Into the Storm” is a killer blend of classic rock and black metal that Tribulation fans should not sleep on, It comes with a an eerie, black-and-white video with performance footage that was shot and directed by members of Cloak.

EXHUMED – “NAKED, SCREAMING, AND COVERED IN BLOOD” (NSFW)

Exhumed’s anticipated new album Horror pays homage to VHS-era horror flicks, and so does the new video for new single “Naked, Screaming, and Covered In Blood.” The video depicts the title very literally, so as you may expect, this is really not something you should be watching at work. So if you’re in the right environment, give it a whirl.

HANDS OF GOD – “TWO SHOTZ” & “MURDERING OF SOULS”

San Jose metallic hardcore crushers Hands of God dropped a new two-song promo on Flatspot Records, and both songs are total rippers. “‘2 Shotz’ is about my friend Chris who passed away fighting a heroin addiction,” vocalist Jefferey Wang tells Revolver. “It expands on my own dealings with addiction, as well as how I dealt with the loss of my friend. ‘Murdering of Souls’ is a song I’d rather people interpret for themselves. It’s pretty obvious to me, but I’m curious as to how people perceive my words on this one.”

BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT – “DEATH REALMS”

Portland’s Blackwater Holylight have shared another song off their upcoming album Veils of Winter, and this one’s a dose of dark, atmospheric psychedelia.

WEEZER – “THE END OF THE GAME”

Weezer’s next album is called Van Weezer, and going by the sound of this new single, it’s obvious that “Van” is indeed a Van Halen reference.

ALEX CAMERON – “STEPDAD”

“‘Stepdad’ is an anthem for anybody that’s ever been a stepparent. For anybody that’s welcomed a third parent into their lives,” says Cameron of this new song. “And for anyone who understands romance in the 21st century. The fairytale, like the typical family dynamic, has evolved. Put this song on to remember how it was, and to celebrate why it worked.” Alex’s new album Miami Memory is out this week.
