19 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, track premieres, and more all day. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. 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.
KING CREOSOTE - "SUSIE MULLEN" & "WALTER DE LA NIGHTMARE"
Scottish musician Kenny Anderson is back with his first new music as King Creosote in four years. "Susie Mullen" is driven by some vintage analog synths and takes Anderson in new directions, while "Walter de la Nightmare" is more in the folk-rock tradition we've come to expect from KC.

TRAAMS – “INTERCONTINENTAL RADIO WAVES”
After a five-year break, UK group TRAAMS returned this summer with "The Greyhound," and now their back with another driving indie rock single "Intercontinental Radio Waves" which the band wrote while on tour with Car Seat Headrest. The song comes with a video directed by Stewart Armstrong who says: "Inspired by one of my favourite books, 'The Last Days of New Paris' by China Miéville, in which manifestations of surrealist artworks and texts stalk the streets of Paris in 1950's occupied France, the video is an animated paean to the ideas that art can defeat fascism and that a broken heart can be healed."
SUSS - "HOME" & "ECHO LAKE"
Ambient country group SUSS will release their third album Promise on December 4 via Northern Spy. Powered by otherworldly pedal steel, SUSS call the new album “pastoral psychedelicism" which you can get a taste of via these two tracks.
