15 New Songs Out Today
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…
BLACK MARBLE - "FEELS"
L.A.'s Black Marble have shared a second single from the upcoming Bigger Than Life. "Feels" is warmly nostalgic for '90s college radio (and '80s synthpop), while the video conveys an eerie, dreamlike mood. Bigger Than Life is out October 25 via Sacred Bones.
IGGY POP - "SONALI"
Iggy Pop's new album Free is out next week and here's a third appetizer before we get the full meal. With its prevalent trumpet and laid back jazzy vibe, "Sonali" could almost be a Destroyer song circa Kaputt, though Dan Bejar would never sing it like Iggy does.
SKRILLEX, BOYS NOIZE, TY DOLLA $IGN - "MIDNIGHT HOUR"
Skrillex and Boys Noize are headlining NYC's Electric Zoo this weekend under their Dog Blood moniker, and just ahead of that, they've shared this new collab with R&B crooner Ty Dolla $ign. All three artists' styles are on full display here, so if you're a fan of any or all involved, check this out.
SQUID - "MATCH BET"
Buzzy UK band Squid have shared another song off their upcoming Town Centre EP, which drops September 6 via Dan Carey's Speedy Wunderground label. With spiraling guitars that fall somewhere between Radiohead and math rock, vocals that go from shouty post-punk to hazy psych-pop, and a trippy ending that brings in avant-jazz sax and a krauty rhythm section, this song covers a lot of ground in its 4-minute running time without ever losing focus. It's very cool stuff.
BIRDMAN & JUVENILE - "RIDE DAT" (ft. LIL WAYNE)
Former Hot Boys groupmates Lil Wayne and Juvenile have reunited on this new song, and if you miss the sounds of classic late '90s Cash Money, you're gonna wanna hear this.
EARTHGANG - "UP"
Dreamville-signed Atlanta duo EarthGang are gearing up to release their new album Mirrorland, and it'll feature this new song "Up," which finds them sing-rapping in a very psychedelic way.
SONGHOY BLUES - "TIME TO GO HOME"
Malian band Songhoy Blues are working on the follow-up to 2017's breakthrough Resistance and, as an early taste, have a new EP titled Meet Me in the City that's out October 18. The EP was produced by Matt Sweeney and features Songhoy Blues collaborating with Will Oldham, who provides the title track's lyrics, and Junior Kimbrough who co-wrote the lyrics for "Time to Go Home." The latter has been shared in two mixes, one by Blake Mills and the other by Dave Ferguson. "I think it's safe to say that the brave poets of Songhoy Blues have a different idea what a 'bad day' is than pretty much all other rock bands," Sweeney says. "Their music and singing are powerful beyond words. Making a new song with them was a humbling honor and an unforgettable joy."
MNNQNS - "FALL DOWN"
French band MNNQNS recall the mid-'00s days when Interpol and The Strokes sparked an indie rock rennaisence and we were flooded with well-dressed bands making angular rock. The group's debut album, Body Negative, is out October 11 via FatCat and you can check out the video for catchy new single "Fall Down" right now.
TR/ST - "THE DESTROYER"
Robert Alfons will release the second part of TR/ST's two-part double album, The Destroyer, in November. This is the title track.
SASAMI - "TAKE CARE"
Former Cherry Glazerr keyboardist SASAMI recently finished touring with Snail Mail in support of her debut solo LP, which came out earlier this year. She's shared a new single, "Take Care," about which she says, "everyone has a destructive, reckless side- however much they choose or allow the world to see it. The video for 'Take Care' is about embracing that destructive side of you and forgiving yourself. Even when you are lost and want to give up, loving yourself and forgiving. Also there's a little reminder to donate to RAICESTEXAS.COM because once you help yourself, you need to help others."
COMET GAIN - "MID 8TS"
Comet Gain, the cultishly loved UK indie greats led by David Feck, are back with their first album in five years, titled Fireraisers Forever! that will be out October 11. “Mid 8Ts” is an organ-fueled twee punk anthem that may have fond memories of the days of Vespas and Beatle Boots (“we were ’60s in the ’80s”) but argues for living in the now. “Old mods with bellies and hair like shit,” they sing, adding, “all your heydays deserve better than this.”
YOUNG M.A - "PETTYWAP 2"
Young M.A finally announced her long-awaited debut album and also shared this bonus track off the LP. Read more here.
PROFANATICA - "EUCHARIST IN RUIN"
Black metal vets Profanatica have shared another brutal track off their upcoming Rotting Incarnation of God (due 10/11 via Season of Mist).
SKULLSHITTER - "COUNCIL OF DISEASE"
NYC deathgrinders Skullshitter are releasing a split LP with Toronto's Bleeding Out on September 27 via Nerve Altar, and Skullshitter's "Council of Disease" is here now. It covers a surprisingly large amount of ground in its 52-second running time, from total deathgrind brutality to classic metal shredding and more.
WITCH VOMIT - BURIED DEEP IN A BOTTOMLESS GRAVE (ALBUM STREAM)
Pacific Northwest OSDM revivalists Witch Vomit's new album Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave comes out tomorrow via 20 Buck Spin, and you can stream the whole thing and read an interview with the band at Invisible Oranges.
