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…

CHROMATICS - "FAMOUS MONSTERS"

No strangers drop dropping singles (and albums) out of the blue, Chromatics return with this moody house track, with singer Ruth Radelet in hushed-and-spoken mode.

--

THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE - "SERIOUS"

While we're still waiting on that new Kings of Convenience album, Erlend Oye has just dropped a new track from his other group, the jazzy, dance-oriented The Whitest Boy Alive. "Serious," which was recorded in Buenos Aires, is suitably breezy and a welcome return (their last album was 2009's Rules).

--

CUPCAKKE - "LAWD JESUS"

CupcakKe, who must not actually be retiring from music, has just unleashed a new cold hard banger. Catch her at Brooklyn's Elsewhere Zone One on 4/4 with Cakes Da Killa and Alice Longyu Gao.

HANNAH GEORGAS - "THAT EMOTION"

Speaking of songs fans of Feist might enjoy, Vancouver artist Hannah Georgas has shared a new single, the first taste of a collaboration with The National's Aaron Dessner. "This song is a portrait of one particular way that emotions can build up inside," Georgas says. "You’re going through the motions, suppressing how you really feel, and pretending things are ok — but your body knows...that deep down life and worry can weigh you down in ways your head might not acknowledge. This song was inspired by the feeling of hiding emotions you would like to express but feeling alone."

HAMILTON LEITHAUSER - "ISABELLA"

Former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser will release his new solo album, The Loves of Your Life, on April 10 and he's just shared a new single. Like all the songs on the record, "Isabella" is about a real person, in this case, it's named after a young girl whose parents pay her Manhattan rent, and this is precisely why she can’t grow up. Watch the lyric video for that, as well as another of Hamilton's short films (this one featuring Maggie Rogers giving him a haircut), below:

HINDS - “COME BACK AND LOVE ME<3”

"'Come Back and Love Me<3' is the most romantic song we’ve ever done," say Spanish band Hinds of their new single. "the bossa-nova vibes Amber and Ade created (they don’t like calling it bossa-nova cause it is not accurate, but i asked them and they let me use the term to describe the smoothness and flow) are the perfect rhythm section you could imagine for a song like this one. plus we went full-spaniards here. actually there are two spanish guitars, one of them is a super-small-super-cheap one that i have in madrid and was also recorded in madrid in our friends’ studio, it is actually the demo take that we didn’t wanna change! we had real doubts about which song of the album should be the next single and when we told our team we wanted this one they all freaked out ‘cause nobody chooses ballads for a single. then i thought that we never really followed any industry rule so i think we will be okay. please come back and love me, yeah ?" Hinds new album, The Prettiest Curse, is out April 3.

JULIA BARDO - PHASE (EP STREAM)

Manchester-via-Italy musician and songwriter Julia Bardo released a new EP, Phase, via Wichita Recordings. She co-produced it with The Orielles' Henry Carlyle Wade, and says, "it was exciting. For the first time these songs feel like me." If you like atmospheric, melancholy singer-songwriter styled indie rock, it's worth a listen.

--

WVRM - "YEARS OF LEAD"

WVRM's new single off their upcoming Colony Collapse (due 4/3 via Prosthetic) is part grind, part death, part sludge... whatever subgenre you call it, shit is filthy.

--

ABORTED - "GLOOM AND THE ART OF TRIBULATION"

Speaking of WVRM, Belgian death metal vets Aborted (who are touring with Napalm Death, WVRM, and Tombs this year) have unleashed this new ripper off their upcoming EP La Grande Mascarade, due April 17 via Century Media.

--

LITHICS - "HANDS"

Portland band Lithics are back with Tower of Age, their first record for Trouble In Mind which will be out June 5. Excellent first single "Hands" stays tightly coiled for most of it's existence, though it unleashes some serious noise when you least expect it.

--

LAKE RUTH - 'CRYING EVERYONE ELSE'S TEARS' EP

Brooklyn baroque pop band Lake Ruth just released their new EP and it’s a little different for the Brooklyn trio. “Early last year, we were distracted from our album writing by an intriguing collection of unpublished love songs by our friend and fellow songwriter Renee Tamraz,” says singer Allison Brice. “The lyrics were just devastating and we thought they had great potential. It was a different direction for us as we’re not known for writing love songs ourselves. All our characters seem tangled in more existential dramas. I love interpreting other songwriters lyrics – if you connect with them it’s such an interesting shift in perspective. It’s a chance to be someone else’s voice."

--

ANXIOUS ARMS - "ON SOUL AND SUBJECTION"

Sacramento's Anxious Arms are releasing their new EP Head Toward Heaven on April 10 via Sunday Drive Records, and lead single "On Soul and Subjection" takes the shoegazy emo thing and injects it with some nasty metalcore. It's by far the heaviest thing this band has done yet.

--

GUNNA - "SKYBOX"

Gunna's new album WUNNA is set to drop this year, and he's just shared this pillowy new track and its very ambitious video.

--

BROCKHAMPTON - "SUGAR" (REMIX ft. DUA LIPA, RYAN BEATTY & JON B)

BUTCHER BROWN - "TIDAL WAVE"

Hip hop-tinged jazz group combine their two loves on this song, which merges Ronnie Laws' 1975 jazz fusion song "Tidal Wave" with Brooklyn rap trio Black Moon's 1993 song "Who Got The Props?," which samples the Ronnie Laws song. "A nod to the OGs Ronnie Laws and Black Moon. Our example of how Jazz and Rap come from the same soul," the band says.

--

GOGO PENGUIN - "ATOMISED"

--

--

VIAGRA BOYS - COMMON SENSE EP

Sweden’s Viagra Boys are back, having surprised released a new EP, Common Sense, featuring four new spasms of new-wavy, debauched punk (It’s their first new record since 2018’s Street Worms). The protagonists in these songs don’t seem to have any common sense at all, given the depraved, rock-bottom ripper “Lick the Bag,” or the 3AM desperation of “Blue,” but they paint a vivid picture.

--

JASON ISBELL - "WHAT'VE I DONE TO HELP"
