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…
FURY – FAILED ENTERTAINMENT (ALBUM STREAM)
Fury’s Run For Cover debut Failed Entertainment has been one of our most anticipated punk albums of the year for a while, and though the official release isn’t until this Friday, the band have put the whole thing up on their Bandcamp early. Check it out — it’s a ripper from start to finish.
TINK – VOICEMAILS (MIXTAPE STREAM)
Chicago rapper/singer Tink was just in NYC for an SOB’s show last week, and today she returned with a new mixtape, Voicemails. Both Tink’s rapping and singing are in fine form, and the mixtape’s one guest appearance comes from DeJ Loaf on “Ride It.”
TRAVIS SCOTT x GUCCI MANE – “MURDA”
The Weeknd premiered a bunch of unreleased music on his Beats 1 show “Memento Mori” over the weekend, and one of the most notable ones was this new collab from Travis Scott and Gucci Mane.

THOM YORKE – “DON’T FEAR THE LIGHT” AND “GAWPERS”
Two classical compositions by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke were aired as part of this week’s edition of BBC 3 radio series “Unclassified” and both made their debut at the “Minimalist Dream House” performance at the Philharmonie de Paris on April 7. Listen to “Don’t Fear the Light” at 27:30 and “Gawpers” at 47:20 in the archived “Unclassified” episode.
RADICAL DADS – “THE FACE OF LOUDNESS”
Indie rock trio Radical Dads aren’t so active these days as their members are far-flung around the country (none of them live in Brooklyn anymore). But here’s a brand new two-track single released in tribute to all the members hitting their 40s. “Rock n roll may be a young person’s game, but it’s an old person’s gamble. One false headbang and you have to reconceive your entire Lollapalooza set due to being in a total body cast.”
BLUE FOUNDATION – “HRÖNN”
Danish duo Blue Foundation, who you may know from the soundtracks of films Twilight, Miami Vice or TV series The Vampire Diaries, have a new album, Silent Dream, made up of ethereal, moody instrumentals. They’ve got a new single, “Hrönn,” which splits the difference between classical and dreampop.
SOCIETY OF THE SILVER CROSS – “KALI OM”
Seattle’s Society of the Silver Cross is the new project from from Joe Reineke (Alien Crime Syndicate, Meices) and his wife Karyn that draws heavily from their travels in India. Their debut album, 1 Verse, will be out in June and first single is the droning, meditative “Kali Om.”
RAMIN DJAWADI – “THE NIGHT KING”
Last night’s epic Battle of Winterfell episode of Game of Thrones climaxed with a montage of nearly every major character on the show literally battling for their lives, with many tragic moments and at least one big “yes!” It was made all the more powerful by a sweeping, stirring new piece of music from series composer Ramin Djawadi.
