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…

HAYLEY WILLIAMS - "OVER YET"

JENNY HVAL - "BONUS MATERIAL"

I was also meant to release this track, 'Bonus Material' (an outtake from the The Practice of Love), as a tour companion.

ANDREW BIRD - "CAPITAL CRIMES"

"Capital Crimes" first came out as the b-side on the 7" vinyl of Andrew Birds' 2018 single "Bloodless," and now he's made it available digitally for the first time. "I wrote 'Capital Crimes' more than a year ago about capital punishment," he says. "For a while they were giving IQ tests to death row inmates. If you scored below 70 your life was spared, above 70 and you were executed. Of course this is absurd and was eventually done away with but the fact that it was in practice for even for a moment is alarming. Lately we find ourselves having these moral arguments, these false choice fallacies that older citizens should sacrifice themselves for the sake of the economy. The government exists to protect and care for its citizens especially those who are most vulnerable, not decide who should be sacrificed. I hope the song handles the issue more eloquently than my prose here. 'If I let go of your hand it would be murder' - the things that hold our society together are not really institutions and laws but everyday humanity and compassion. An acceptance that we are all in this together. I thought this was a single-issue song until Matthew Siskin put this video together and made me realize that it's far more universal than I thought."
