30 New Songs Out Today

Ariana, Miley, Lana
Ariana, Miley, Lana

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…

NEW PORNOGRAPHERS – ‘ONE KIND OF SOLOMON”

“In terms of keyboards, this record has such a Kathryn Calder stamp,” says AC Newman of New Pornographers’ new album, In the Morse Code of Brake Lights. There was a point where she started playing this part on ‘Solomon’ and I feel like it just changed the record. When I heard what she did with it, I said, ‘Do this on every song.’” The keyboards on “One Kind of Solomon” do really add a dreamy element here.

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS – “A DREAM IS ALL I NEED TO GET BY”

“To my ears it sounds like one of those iconic B-sides by The Smiths,” says Noel Gallagher of “A Dream is All AI Need to Get By,” then adding, “only obviously not as good. A song that was born very quickly which is always a good sign … like it’s always existed … somewhere … Manchester probably.” Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ new EP, This is the Place, is out September 27.

PIXIES – BENEATH THE EYRIE (ALBUM STREAM)

The third Pixies album of this decade might be the most Pixies-esque yet of the comeback years.

OPEN MIKE EAGLE – “THE EDGE OF NEW CLOTHES”

The Needle Drop‘s Anthony Fantano curated a benefit compilation, with proceeds going to The Immigration Legal Resource Center. Open Mike Eagle opens the comp with “The Edge of New Clothes.”

SNOOP DOGG, MIGOS, KAROL G & ROCK MAFIA – “MY FAMILY”

Snoop Dogg has been involved in various projects outside of music in recent years, with one recent effort being a voice role in the upcoming animated film The Addams Family, as the character Cousin It. To promote his appearance, he’s dropped a collaboration with Migos, which contains a childish flair that would probably fare well with the film’s target audience.

JARVIS – “MUST I EVOLVE?” REMIXES

Jarvis Cocker’s JARV IS project released the terrific “Must I Evolve?” single earlier this year, with vinyl originally only available at shows. They’ve now released it as a proper 12″ single and the b-side is a remix by David Holmes & Keefus Ciancia, who both make music as part of Unloved. Says Jarvis: “David Holmes & Keefus Ciancia invited Catherine Rebeiro, Ennio Morricone, The Vampires of Dartmoor, Jean-Claude Vannier, La Düsseldorf, Alan Vega, Sergio Leone, Dario Argento & Jaromil Jireš to our Rave in the Cave.” The digital release also includes another, more electro remix and a radio edit.

HOLY FUCK – “LUXE” FT. ALEXIS TAYLOR

If you’re caught Holy Fuck opening for Hot Chip on their current tour you may have already heard “Luxe,” which Alexis Taylor comes out to sing with the band. The song began a couple years ago as a improvised encore in Luxembourg (hence the name “Luxe”), and after working on it, Holy Fuck asked Alexis if he’d sing on it, imagining it sounding like “a sample of an old folk record.” Alexis then suggested he record his vocals using a Voice O Graph booth (an obsolete 1940s coin operated phonograph booth), if they could find one. Luckily Jack White owned one of the two working booths and came to the rescue.

DRAKE – “BEHIND BARZ FREESTYLE”

Drake has recently been instrumental in reviving the UK crime drama Top Boy, whose third season recently premiered on Netflix, after ending its original run in 2013. Aside from helping bring the show back from the dead, he also curated the series’ official soundtrack, which includes tracks from some of Drake’s collaborators and friends, such as Little Simz, Dave, Popcaan, Giggs, and more. Drake himself also contributed to the soundtrack by releasing a studio version of his “Behind Barz” freestyle, which was originally released in 2018.

HOMEWRECKER – “CREATE SIN” & “BROKEN BELIEFS”

Ohio metallic hardcore rippers Homewrecker are about to head out on tour with Venom Prison, and just ahead of that they’ve dropped two new singles, “Create Sin” and “Broken Beliefs.” About the new tracks, guitarist and vocalist Matt Barnum says, “these songs are the best representation of us and our sound. Punk, metal, and hardcore are constantly in our rotation and always will be. Love it or hate it, this is Homewrecker.”

REFUSED – “REV 001″

Refused are releasing their first album since 2015, War Music, next month, and they’ve shared another new single, “Rev 001.” About it, the band says, “#REV001 is a protest song. A punkrock song. We like to think of it as incredibly violent pop music. Whatever you call it, we’re hoping it’ll get your blood boiling and that it’ll make you wanna dance (like it does our fearless captain @dennislyxzen in the video), ‘cause what else can one do in these desperate times? Well, we at the bottom could arm ourselves and go for those at the top, while smashing a few banks on the way? We’ll get there. Like we said, these things happen all the time.”

ARIANA GRANDE, MILEY CYRUS, LANA DEL REY – “DON’T CALL ME ANGEL”

Pop singers Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey have teamed up for this superstar collaboration, which promotes the upcoming Charlie’s Angels film reboot. While each of their contributions to the track aren’t quite as cohesive as they could have been, all three artists clearly play to their strengths. The video is also a delight to watch, with scenes showing Lana throwing knives among the many highlights.

INSOMNIUM – “HEART LIKE A GRAVE”

Finnish melodic death metallers Insomnium are releasing their anticipated new album, Heart Like a Grave, on October 4, and they’ve shared the title track, a gloomy but ultimately cathartic trek through infectious riffs and haunting atmosphere.

PERFUME GENIUS – “EYE IN THE WALL”

Perfume Genius is back with this nearly-nine-minute song that starts out sounding like a fresh update on the Perfume Genius you know and love, but it turns into a kind of dark, hypnotic, instrumental jam that you might not have expected from Perfume Genius. The song will be part of The Sun Still Burns Here, Perfume Genius’ collaborative dance and music piece with choreographer Kate Wallich and her company The YC.

NEIL YOUNG WITH CRAZY HORSE – “RAINBOW OF COLORS”

Neil Young‘s first album with Crazy Horse since 2012’s very solid Psychedelic Pill, Colorado, comes out October 25 via Reprise, and the band have now shared another single from it, “Rainbow of Colors.” It’s a shaggy rocker that sounds like classic Crazy Horse, and it’s an uplifting, triumphant sounding song about America, but nothing you’d call “patriotic.”

ENTRAIL – “CRAVING”

“This track comes from a place of primal yearning for human contact and the pain that seethes in absence of deep, safe, sustained touch,” says Olympia singer-songwriter / drone artist Entrail of this this track from new album Easter of Starlight. “It is a cry for building a culture of platonic physical intimacy, for helping to feed each other’s bodies with a most basic element of nourishment.”

SPIRAL HEADS – “BABY’S GOT BANGS”

Spiral Heads are a new New York/Boston-based punk band whose lineup includes Simon Doom on bass/vocals, Jim Carroll (American Nightmare) on guitar/vocals, and Q (Doomriders) on drums. They’re releasing releasing their debut self-titled EP in October and this is the lead single.

SKATUNE NETWORK – “COLD RAVIOLIS” (GRADUATING LIFE COVER)

In case you aren’t familiar, Skatune Network is Jeremy Hunter, a one-person-band who has been going viral thanks to their ska covers of songs from all different walks of non-ska life. He has teamed with Counter Intuitive Records to release a covers album entirely with songs by “Counter Intuitive-adjacent” bands, including Oso Oso, Prince Daddy & the Hyena, Retirement Party, Kississippi, Nervous Dater, and more. Graduating Life‘s “Cold Raviolis” already had some ska-style horns, but Skatune Network turns it into a full skankfest.
