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…

FLAMING LIPS & DEAP VALLY - "HOME THRU HELL"

Dead Lips, the collaborative album between The Flaming Lips and Deap Vally is out March 13 via Cooking Vinyl and they've just released another song from it. "[Deap Vally] showed up with no songs so Steven [Drozd] and I quickly threw together a song and set about playing and tracking and singing and rewriting lyrics,' says Coyne of "Home Thru Hell" which opens the album. "Before we knew it we, surprisingly, had a great, great track."

BECK – “UNEVENTFUL DAYS (ST. VINCENT REMIX)”

Beck and St. Vincent both played that Nirvana reunion in Los Angeles, and will both be part of a Grammys tribute to prince later this month, and here's another connection. St. Vincent has remixed "Uneventful Days" from Beck's 2019 album Hyperspace. The original is pretty mellow, this remix...much less so.

MORRISSEY - “BOBBY, DON’T YOU THINK THEY KNOW?” FT THELMA HOUSTON

Morrissey is back with new album I Am Not A Dog on a Chain on March 20. He once again made it with producer Joe Chiccarelli and judging by this single, he's going in an electro-rock direction. “Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?” features a sax solo and backing vocals from soul great Thelma Houston. "I don’t believe Morrissey is racist," Thelma Houston told Pitchfork in a statement, in reference to Morrissey's far-right leanings of late. "And I got involved with this track because I’ve known about his music for quite some time. Back in 2012, I was collaborating with an artist named Gabe Noel, and he suggested we try some covers. And when he mentioned a Morrissey song called ‘Suedehead,’ as soon as I heard ‘it was a good lay’ lyric - I laughed and was like… Ok let’s cut it!"

THE BOOMTOWN RATS – “TRASH GLAM, BABY”

Bob Geldof's band The Boomtown Rats are set to release Tales of Boomtown Glory, the band's first album in 36 years, on March 13. The first single is "Trash Glam, Baby" which Bob wrote about the '70s Kings Road punk scene and what that neighborhood is now. Says Bob: "Back then I'd written a song about the amazons I'd encountered making the scene in the late 1970s: ‘She's So Modern’ was a hit. ["She's so 20th century/She's so 1970s"]. A millennium and 2 decades later down at the S-bend of the KIngs Road, that squiggle that becomes the Worlds End and where those girls would inhabit Lloyd Johnson’s and Vivienne Westwood’s shops, the glam has gone and moved east. But Vivienne is still there. Now opposite and beside her shop Sex there are 3 decent charity shops. I go there to check out cool shirts etc. On a Saturday in 2017 there was a glorious kid of around 16/17 talking to her friend behind the counter. She was fabulous. Like a bastard hybrid of The New York Dolls and early Roxy Music. A sequined tramp. A living glitter ball. They were moaning about it being Saturday and nothing to do and no money to do it with. The usual anthem of the bored weekend. She didn't look consciously "retro" or anything, she looked wonderful and beautiful in that damned youth way...She should be a song. Here she is. She's so 21st century...."

MEGAN THEE STALLION & NORMANI - "DIAMONDS"

Megan Thee Stallion and Normani put their heads together for this booming rap/R&B duet that was made for the soundtrack to Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and already sounds like it's got hit potential.

--

DRAKE & FUTURE - "LIFE IS GOOD"

Drake and Future, whose What A Time To Be Alive is one of the best rap albums of the 2010s, have teamed up again for the new single "Life Is Good." They're both even more rich and famous now than they were then, and this song has even more superstar bravado than WATTBA did.

--

J BALVIN - "MORADO"

Reggaeton giant J Balvin follows November's "Blanco" with another color-themed song, "Morado" (purple). Going by the breezy, instantly satisfying sounds of this one, J Balvin's reign is not ending anytime soon.

--

MAC MILLER - "GOOD NEWS"

The late Mac Miller's family will release his sixth and "final" studio album, Circles, next week, and the announcement was accompanied by this sweeping, six-minute rap ballad that was assisted by Jon Brion.

--

ANTI-FLAG - "THE DISEASE"

Anti-Flag have shared another song from their upcoming, explicitly anti-Trump album 20/20 Vision, and it's yet another super catchy anthem with a very strong message. Chris #2 says, "In a moment of the largest wealth divide in history, these people do see the poor as a disease, a plague on their society. The neoliberalism and globalization that has led us here is causing people to see their neighbors, immigrants, refugees as their enemies and has propped up false populists to power. Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, the AFD, these people are not anti-establishment, they’re millionaires and billionaires who have so little in common with real people."

THE BLAZE ft. OCTAVIAN - "SOMEWHERE"

French dance duo The Blaze and UK grime MC Octavian both bring their various styles to the hazy, thumping "Somewhere."

--

PSALM ZERO - "ANIMAL OUTSIDE"

Psalm Zero have shared another track off their upcoming album Sparta, and this one finds the shapeshifting band in gloomy goth/doom territory.

--

WAKE - "IN THE LAIR OF THE RAT KINGS"

The second single off Wake's anticipated new album Devouring Ruin is here, and this one's even more intense than the killer lead single. You can hear it at MetalSucks.

NEZ - "WILD YOUNGSTER" (ft. SCHOOLBOY Q)

Production duo Nez & Rio have helmed a handful of tracks for Schoolboy Q (and A$AP Rocky and Tinashe and more) in the past, and Nez has now tapped Schoolboy Q for his debut single, the clubby "Wild Youngster."

--

070 SHAKE - "GUILTY CONSCIENCE"

Kanye collaborator 070 Shake has debuted another song off her upcoming album MODUS VIVENDI, which comes out on G.O.O.D. Music next week. This one's part rap song, part swaying R&B-pop ballad.

--

HIT-BOY - "ALL BUSINESS" (ft. BENNY THE BUTCHER)

Best known as the beatmaker on Kanye & Jay-Z's "N****s In Paris," G.O.O.D. Music's "Clique," Kendrick's "Backsdeat Freestyle," Nicki Minaj & Beyonce's "Feeling Myself," and more, Hit-Boy has now teamed up with grimy '90s-New-York-rap revivalist Benny the Butcher for this new song.

--

BEACH BUNNY - "CLOUD 9"

Chicago's Beach Bunny shared another peek at their debut LP, Honeymoon, due out in February via Mom + Pop. "Cloud 9" is another very appealing indie rock track, and about it, lead vocalist and songwriter Lili Trifilio says, "I sought out to write a true, gushy, genuine love song when creating 'Cloud 9'. At the time I was at a questionable point in my relationship and I was reflecting on the last few years and how despite the ups and downs, love held us together. I hope that anyone who listens to this song can feel the love in the lyrics and give love a chance, as well as remember to always love themselves first and foremost."

PETER BJORN AND JOHN - "ON THE BRINK"

“In line with most of the other songs on Endless Dream, ‘On The Brink’ has a cautiously positive philosophical outlook on life and the shortcomings of being," says Peter Moren of this new PB&J single. "It looks onward with a grain of hope and confidence. It wonders what's really important when everything comes to a head and the mind is boggled with how extremely tiny we all are compared to the vastness of the universe.” Moren also says "On the Brink" has "has a lot in common musically and emotionally with PBJ's epic indie-classic ‘Objects Of My Affection’ from the Writer's Block album. With rolling tom-toms, mandolin, 12-stringed guitar and a singalong sea shanty chorus, it might even be its older and slightly wiser folk-rock cousin or sibling.” Endless Dream is out March 13 via INGRID.

COLD BEAT - "PRISM"

Cold Beat, the terrific synthpop band led by onetime Grass Widow singer/bassist Hannah Lew, are now on DFA which seems like a good fit for all involved. Their first album for the label is titled Mother and will be out February 28 and they’ve just released the second single from the record, the cyclical, deceptively complex “Prism.”

SIA - "ORIGINAL"

Sia's first single of 2020 is this upbeat, feel-good track from the Dolittle soundtrack.
