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…

DAYS N DAZE - "MY DARLING DOPAMINE"

Folk punks Days N Daze will release their new album Show Me the Blueprints on May 1 via Fat Wreck Chords (their first release for the label), and the horn-fueled first single "My Darling Dopamine" finds the band's "thrashgrass" in fine form.

RIDE - "CLOUDS IN THE MIRROR" (PETR ALEKSANDER REMIXES)
Ride has teamed up with producer duo Pêtr Aleksänder (aka Noah & The Whale's Tom Hobden and Two Door Cinema Club's Eliot James) for a new, reworked version of their terrific 2019 album This Is Not A Safe Place that turns it into a more orchestral beast. It's titled Clouds in the Mirror, and it drops May 1st via Wichita Recordings. Ride's Andy Bell praised the new versions in a statement, saying, "...the results are inspired, often really beautiful, and at times, totally mental. [Pêtr Aleksänder] have crafted a delicate web of string and synthesizer arrangements which draws you into a whole other world than our version of the album. I love what they've created." You can check out the reimagined versions of "Repetition" and "Clouds of Saint Marie" now:

NAP EYES - "MYSTERY CALLING"
Canadian band Nap Eyes (who are on tour now with Destroyer) are set to release their fourth LP Snapshot of a Beginner later this month, and their latest offering is the breezy "Mystery Calling," which comes with a cinematic, dream-like music video from Antoine LeHaie.  “We don't know whether they've been there before, if they're stuck there and passing time, if they have a purpose or they're just chilling,” says Lahaie. “It was also important for me to keep it abstract and unresolved. Even though I like to be tongue in cheek I didn't want to fall into something comedic.”

ANNA BURCH - "TELL ME WHAT'S TRUE"

"Tell Me What's True," the dreamy new single from Anna Burch's upcoming album, takes it's video inspiration from Martin Scorsese's 1974 classic Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. "I had been planning a sort of minimalist performance video on a Rhodes piano but didn’t have any concrete ideas," says Anna, who directed. "Then I stumbled across the 1974 Scorsese film Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore and was so entranced by this scene of her auditioning in a cowboy bar on an electric piano, and I thought it would be a really sweet homage to recreate the scene with my song. The movie is so charming and funny, and the performances are incredible — Ellen Burstyn won the Oscar for Best Actress. It’s a bit of an outlier for Scorsese, and not one of his better known, but it might be my favorite now."

HARKIN - "UP TO SPEED"

ANDERSON. PAAK & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - "DON'T SLACK"

So far this year, Justin Timberlake has released new songs with SZA and Meek Mill, and now he's got one with another great, comparatively newer artist: Anderson .Paak. Like the SZA song, it'll appear in Trolls World Tour (which both JT and Paak voice characters in), and this one sounds a bit like early Janelle Monae.
