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…

DEVENDRA BANHART - "SCENESCOF" (TYRANNOSAURUS REX COVER)

Devendra Banhart has shared his contribution to the upcoming AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan and T.Rex which was produced and curated by the late Hal Wilner. "Scenescof" comes from Bolan's Tyrannosaurus Rex days and this version is ethereal and orchestral. "I was completely in love with Marc Bolan, from John’s Children to Dandy in the Underworld and everything in between,” says Banhart. “I remember the feeling of freedom I got from 'Scenescof' …'I don’t need anyone to dictate all my fun smile your smile and then run'…. That line gave me the courage to carve out a little bit of fantasy in my life back in my late teens. But now, the song will be inextricably linked with mourning, it was the last time I was in a studio with my dear dear friend Hal Willner...I haven’t even begun to process the heartbreak of that loss...we were just texting about Jerry Lewis and sending each other links to funny videos and weird songs and two weeks later he was gone. Hal had the coolest, calmest demeanor...the kind that comes from having had really been through some shit and come out of it still caring about life, the world, and art. I will miss him terribly...to two angel headed hipsters, i'm honored to be a part of this tribute album."

A.A. WILLIAMS - "MELT"

A.A. Williams has released a new song off her anticipated debut album Forever Blue, and this one finds her blending her usual dark singer/songwriter material with a heavier post-rock side. Great stuff.

BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB - "LOSE YOU TO LOVE ME" (SELENA GOMEZ COVER)

Bombay Bicycle Club released their very good comeback album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong earlier this year, and they just did a Spotify session where they reinvented "I Can Hardly Speak" off that album and also did a cover of Selena Gomez's "Lose You To Love Me," on which Jack Steadman duets and harmonies with Rae Morris. It's immediately recognizable as the Selena Gomez song, but BBC also really make it their own.

The first one released is their cover of "Ghost Highway," a Mazzy Star song that's kind of on the hard rock side to begin with, so it's no surprise that MANTAR pull this one off well.

DEN-MATE - "IT'LL ALL COME BACK"

Washington DC's Jules Hale released her debut album as Den-Mate, Loceke, in 2018, and now she's preparing to release a new EP, Hypnagogia, due out via Babe City and Substitute Scene Records on June 26. Hypnotic new single "It'll All Come Back" "is a song about overcoming something painful that you have experienced in your life," she tells Gorilla vs Bear. "These lyrics serve as a mantra: 'you're not a victim if you choose not to be, a little planning, get dirt in between your feet' to signify a change to grow, forgive, and accept. Growth is not an easy thing, especially if you are coming from the depths of a wounded mindset. Then, the opening phrase: 'you have the right to be who you wanna be' is a reassurance when the hard work involved feels too heavy. During these difficult times it's important that we focus on what we can do to make ourselves a home for peace alongside being kind to others. I hope someone who is struggling can listen and feel empowered."

IAN SWEET - "SWORD"

Jilian Medford released her second album as Ian Sweet, Crush Crusher, in 2018, and now she's followed it with a new single, "Sword," which she describes as "my Ultimate Fighter manifesto. It was born from the dire need to end what felt like a relentless battle. A battle where I was constantly being disarmed. I imagined my body being both the shield and weapon to fight back against someone who wanted me to surrender."

Purling Hiss frontman Mike Polizze will release his debut solo album, Long Lost Solace Find, on July 31 via Paradise of Bachelors. Purling Hiss are known for being very loud, but his record is not that. "This record is largely acoustic, mellow, and almost without electric guitar," writes Mike." It consists of mostly love songs and Moody jams." The first single, "Revelation," and the whole record, features fellow Philly musician Kurt Vile.

OMNI - "CONSTANT REMINDER"

Atlanta's Omni are back with this new track via Adult Swim singles that features a killer riff and the group's signature spiky left turns. "We recorded it during the Multi-task sessions," says the band, "but it's energy didn't quite find a place in the album sequence. We love it's odd arrangement and rambunctious nature, it felt like it always needed to be a single.
