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. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.
BOLDY JAMES & THE ALCHEMIST - "TURPENTINE/STEEL WOOL"
Boldy James and The Alchemist's new collaborative album Bo Jackson comes out this Friday (8/13), and they've now shared two new songs in this double video. As always, Boldy's subtly deadly delivery pairs perfectly with The Alchemist's warm, nostalgic production.
G PERICO - "SPAZZ" (ft. REMBLE)
LA rapper G Perico will release a new album, Play 2 Win, on August 27 via Perico Innerprize, LLC/EMPIRE, and first single "Spazz" finds his bouncy West Coast sound in fine form.
DDG - "LUSTED"
Fast-rising melodic Michigan rapper DDG follows his 2021 album Die 4 Respect with a new single, the somber, catchy "Lusted."
PORRIDGE RADIO - "YOU ARE A RUNNER AND I AM MY FATHER'S SON" (WOLF PARADE COVER)
Porridge Radio have a new 7" out as part of the Sub Pop singles series where they cover two classics from the '00s-era of the label. You may have already heard their take on The Shins' "New Slang" and now here's the other side, an acoustic-leaning version of Wolf Parade's "You Are A Runner And I Am My Father's Son." Dana Margolin's delivery rivals Spencer Krug's in the gravity department though they approach things completely differently.
SAY SUE ME - "SO TENDER"
Ssouth Korean indie rock quartet Say Sue Me are back with "So Tender," their first new music since 2019. The dreamy track was written for new Netflix K-drama Nevertheless, which it's the opening theme for.
CHORUSING - "BLUE RIDGE"
“‘Blue Ridge’ is a song that deals with the experience of nostalgia," says Matthew O'Connell of the third single from his debut album as Chrousing. "It recalls an old friendship—driving and smoking cigarettes on the Blue Ridge Parkway outside of Asheville, staying up late in a city park, drinking too much, hysterical laughter, so on and so forth,” explains O’Connell. “Writing the song was my way of dealing with feelings of longing and nostalgia—an attempt to replace them with warmth and appreciation for a fleeting moment in time.” Chorusing's Half Mirror is out Friday via Western Vinyl.
POP. 1280 - "NOT TOO DEEP"
"It seemed fitting to us to write a dance song in such apocalyptic times, and "Not Too Deep' is the result of that effort," says Pop 1280 of their new single. "We often write impressionistic or surrealistic lyrics, but for 'Not Too Dee' we wanted to be direct and to the point, thus mirroring the directness of the music. An important theme in this song, and throughout the entire album, is the notion that we have become so accustomed to the slow, inevitable death of humanity that the apocalypse has become banal." Pop. 1280's new album, Museum on the Horizon, is out September 28.
DORIAN ELECTRA - "M'LADY" (FT. KERO KERO BONITO, S3RL REMIX)
Sarah from Kero Kero Bonito features on the revved up, hyperpop-flavored new S3RL remix of "Gentleman / M'Lady," from Dorian Electra's 2020 album My Agenda.
ALLIE - "GHOSTS"
Dream pop/emo blender allie's debut LP Maybe Next Time is a few weeks away, and here's another promising song from it. “‘ghosts’ is a rumination of if and how my long-term ex-partner and I will be remembered by our close friends as the couple we once were," allie told FLOOD. “It also relentlessly addresses my anxieties of feeling ‘not enough’ or otherwise insufficient for my ex-partner in my newfound personhood of transness and gender nonconformity, knowing that these new factors would render us incompatible as romantic companions."
STUCK - "LABOR LEISURE"
If you thought the British had a lock on shouty, angular punk, Chicago's Stuck are here to prove you wrong. "Labor Leisure" is a sharp stick in the eye to wake you from your lockdown stupor.
BEN CHASNY (SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE) - "WATER DRAGON"
Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny will release The Intimate Landscape on November 5 via KPM Records. The album features 13 intricate acoustic instrumentals and for an early taste here's the beautiful, moody "Water Dragon."
