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…

JOAN SHELLEY - "THE FADING"

Folk singer Joan Shelley has shared another truly gorgeous song from her upcoming album Like The River Loves The Sea, which comes out next week (8/30) via No Quarter. Joan says the song "has to do with that moment when something breaks down: a river jumping the bank and causing a flood, a car breaking down, or a romantic breakup. If you can get through it, it is a precious moment."

BLACK MOUNTAIN - "JUNIOR'S EYES" (BLACK SABBATH COVER)

Black Mountain have covered a song by a fellow "Black" band and one who has definitely always been a big influence on them, Black Sabbath. It's not the most obvious Sabbath song though: it's "Junior's Eyes" from 1978's Never Say Die!, their last album with Ozzy (until 2013's 13). "Deep end period Ozzy slow burn. Some Butler / Ward funk, Iommi wah flutters and floating synths," says Black Mountain's Stephen McBean. "Randomly rediscovered on a cruise through some red sand tropics. Nearly ten years on and still pulling riffs from the sky... never say die! You’re never too old to switch on and upwards!"

PETBRICK - "RADIATION FACIAL" (ft. DYLAN WALKER OF FULL OF HELL)

MOLLY SARLÉ - "TWISTED"

"'Twisted' is a song I wrote to myself," Molly Sarlé says about the latest single off her upcoming debut solo LP, Karaoke Angel. "I wrote it while working on a David Mamet play called 'Oleanna.' The play is written so well that it’s impossible to tell who is right, and who is wrong - so empathy ensues. That’s what 'Twisted' is about. If you are paying attention to your life, and to the lives of other people, it’s impossible to escape empathy."

GONG GONG GONG - "SOME KIND OF DEMON"

Beijing-based duo Gong Gong Gong have dropped another track from their upcoming album Phantom Rhythm. "This is probably the most slow and meditative song on the LP, and one of our favourites," say the band of "Some Kind of Demon. "The lyrics are a kind of self-reflection or internal monologue, combining Cantonese words to look at different possibilities or things that could have happened." Fans of minimal, experimental music like 75 Dollar Bill might want to take note.

ANNA MEREDITH - "MOONMOONS"

"'Moonmoons' are the moons of moons," says Anna Meredith of her playful new composition which features on the upcoming album, FIBS. "this idea of intergalactic worlds within worlds and of doubling and playing with scale, of zooming in and out is explored right through the piece, down to the cascading climactic slowing down textures which are actually constructed using the rest of the electronics compressed into two second gestures."

--
