35 New Songs Out Today

Beast Coast

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…

THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS – NO GEOGRAPHY (ALBUM STREAM)

The Chemical Brothers just released their ninth album, No Geography, and Tom and Ed haven’t felt this focused in years, both musically and thematically. Song titles include “If You Ever Change Your Mind About Leaving It All Behind,” “MAH” (“Mad as Hell”)  and “Eve of Destruction” but they say it’s not a Brexit album but there’s no denying a spark has returned.

FONTAINES DC – DOGREL (ALBUM STREAM)

Irish band Fontaines DC, who will soon be on tour with IDLES and then Pottery later in the year, just released their debut album which is full of post-punk swagger and some real heart, too.

MEN I TRUST – “NUMB”

While we wait for Montreal’s Men I Trust to release their new album Oncle Jazz, here’s this jazzy, hazy mellow new track with a pretty killer bassline. They play Coachella this weekend and next, too.

MARK RONSON – “LATE NIGHT FEELINGS” (ft. LYKKE LI)

It features his “Jolene”-esque Miley Cyrus collaboration “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” as well as songs with Angel Olsen, Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello, King Princess, and others. Lykke Li appears on the just-released title track, which is a nicely subtle dose of danceable R&B.

VALERIE JUNE – “LITTLE WING” (JIMI HENDRIX COVER)

Soulful folk singer Valerie June has offered up an atmospheric take on Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” and really turns the song into something she can call her own. She says, “‘Little Wing’ is one of my favorite Hendrix songs. After reading Clarissa Pinkola Estés’ book, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, I started to imagine ‘Little Wing’ from the perspective of the woman he describes in the song. The feminine nature she embodies of a wild and free spirit who tirelessly shares her magic with the world made me think of the gifts my mother, grandmother, sisters, aunts, and other ladies throughout history have given to me, and how fortunate we all are to have strong women inspiring us daily. She is truly ethereal. She is magical. She is a wild woman.”

MARTYRDOD – “HELVETESLARM”

Swedish metal/punks Martyrdod have released a second single off their anticipated new album Hexhammaren (due 5/10 via Southern Lord), and while lead single “Cashless Society” was very metal, this song leans much more on the band’s punk side. The band says: “Helveteslarm: It’s the sound of hell on earth. The sound of evil forces ravaging the world for power. War dogs, warmongers using liberation as a pretext for profiteering. The video was planned and shot over a couple of days only a few weeks before release. The Idea was to portray some of the real driving forces behind armed conflict in the world and their ruthlessness.”

WITCHTRIAL – “WAIT FOR THE REAPER”

DC’s Witchtrial share members with hardcore bands Red Death, Firewalker, and Ajax, and their new song “Wait for the Reaper” kinda sounds like a hardcore punk take on Motorhead, and it’s pretty awesome. It’s the lead single off their upcoming self-titled EP, which was recorded by Merchandise frontman Carson Cox and comes out April 22 via Beach Impediment Records.

NAILS – “I DON’T WANT TO KNOW YOU” & “ENDLESS RESISTANCE” (ft. MAX CAVALERA)

Metallic hardcore crushers Nails are back with two new songs, the whiplash-inducing “I Don’t Want To Know You,” and the slower/groovier “Endless Resistance,” which features Max Cavalera (ex-Sepultura, Soulfly, etc). They also announced a tour; read more here.

CLAUD – “IF I WERE YOU”

Brooklyn songwriter Claud Mintz follows their February single “Easy” with “If I Were You.” About the song, they told Gorilla Vs Bear, “I’m starting to learn that some people just don’t go well together. There was one particular relationship I had that was a dead end. We were SO wrong for each other and we weren’t treating each other right. ‘If I Were You’ is me looking back way later after everything got resolved and laughing at the person I used to be.”

AMERICAN WAR MACHINE – UNHOLY WAR (ALBUM STREAM)

American War Machine’s lineup includes members of Only Living Witness, Agnostic Front, Slapshot, Blood for Blood, Intent to Injure, and Freya, and as a lineup like that suggests, their debut LP Unholy War is full of bulldozing hardcore.

AZEALIA BANKS – “PLAYHOUSE”

Azealia Banks is back with a new loosie, “Playhouse,” and like a lot of her best songs, it sees her rapping (and singing) over a beat that sounds plucked straight from ’90s dance music.

PURE BATHING CULTURE – “ALL NIGHT”

Portland, OR’s Pure Bathing Culture release their new album, Night Pass, on April 26. Its latest single, “All Night,” continues the synthy, ’80s mood of previous singles. “‘All Night’ is simply about two people who refuse to give up on each other,” the band says. “The darker it gets the harder they run.”

OMNI – “DELICACY” & “I DON’T DANCE”

BLUE MATERIAL – “HAUNTED LOVE” FT RAPHIE of BRAIDS

Montreal band Blue Material make gauzy dreampop that sounds like Steely Dan or Hall & Oates beamed in from another dimension to an ancient AM radio. This song features Raphaelle from Braids and their debut album, Cosmic Thunder, is out next week.

DANIEL NORGREN – “ROLLING ROLLING ROLLING”

JEANINES – “EITHER WAY”

If you’re a fan of classic indie pop, be it C-86, Flying Nun or Slumberland Records, Brooklyn duo Jeanines should tick all your boxes. Alicia Jeanine, who writes the songs, and drummer/producer/bassist Jed Smith (My Teenage Stride, Mick Trouble) make what sound like classics: simple, instantly catchy songs informed by ’60s pop and R&B, with ethereal harmonies, minor key melodies, great basslines, jangly guitars and a rough-around-the-edges production that is twee but not too twee. Their debut album is out on June via Slumberland, natch.

THE CONCERNS (ETERNAL SUMMERS/YOUNG SINCLAIRS) – COUNTRY BLUE (ALBUM STREAM)

Daniel Cundiff is the drummer in Eternal Summers and also plays in another Roanoke, VA band, The Young Sinclairs, but doesn’t really take lead (often) in either. With the The Concerns, though, he does just that, making the kind of atmospheric guitar pop you might’ve heard on college radio in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

HOLY SHIP – “NIGHT AQUATIC”

Disappointed with the lack of direwolf action in Game of Thrones? This video from Swedish psych/dancerock band Holy Ship might fill that void, though we’d bet these canines are pretty sweet in real life.

MY BRIGHTEST DIAMOND – “DORIAN”

My Brightest Diamond shared a new outtake from the sessions when she recorded her 2018 album A Million and One. “I had written this song and had the verses for over a year,” Shara Nova writes, “but the chorus would never seem to come. Then in 2017 my dear friend and highly revered songwriter, Dave Deporis, died chasing a thief who stole his laptop, which had new recordings of his songs on it. When Dave died I wept and sang this song for 7 hours until I finally caught this chorus. Dave sang about the Light all the time and he became it. I hope you will explore his music too.”

CARL BROEMEL – BROKENHEARTED JUBILEE (EP STREAM)

My Morning Jacket member Carl Broemel’s new EP is a collaboration with drummer and visual artist Eric Hopper. Carl writes, “Eric and I teamed up last year to record some cover songs that we loved, and what we came up with is a made-to-order spring mix tape which also includes a new song of my own, “Face of the Earth.” Some friends/musicians also appearing are: Bo Koster on keys, Mickey Raphael on harmonica, and Matthew Hopper with string arrangements. The EP’s title is taken from one of my favorite Paul McCartney songs, “Junk” which appears here along with music written by ‪Nick Drake‬, Palmer Rockey, Sardina, Ron Sexsmith, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings‬. Inspiration for “Face of the Earth” came from an incredible new book by Chris Rush called The Light Years.

NANCY & BETH – “I DON’T WANT TO HURT ANYMORE”

Nancy and Beth, aka Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt, will soon be on tour and have just released this new single in anticipation. It’s a cover of standard “I Don’t Want to Hurt Anymore” and their take is inspired by Dinah Washington’s arrangement.  “I discovered Dinah Washington as a teenager and was never the same again,” says Mullally. “She sang with such passion and style and feeling. I was always haunting record stores trying to psychically intuit which Dinah record to spend my last ten bucks on.”

VESSEL & RAKHI SINGH – “WRITTEN IN FIRE (EXCERPT 2)”

TriAngle-signed electronic artist Vessel and violinist Rakhi Singh premiered a collaborative piece composed for string quartet and electronics, Written in Fire, at the Aldeburgh Music Festival last year, and they’re performing it at more UK venues in May. They shared an excerpt from the piece last month, and now they’ve followed that with a second.

ELLIE GOULDING – “SIXTEEN”

Ellie Goulding is back with new single “Sixteen,” which finds her fully in radio-friendly pop territory. Ellie says, “That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart. It takes me back to the reckless days of being a teenager and I hope it reminds us all about the innocence of youth.”
