26 New Songs Out Today
So many artists, so many songs, 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, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.
BUILT TO SPILL - "FOOL'S GOLD"
Indie rock greats Built to Spill will release When the Wind Forgets Your Name in September and they've just shared another track from it. If you've ever wondered what frontman Doug Martsch would look like with a pageboy haircut, the song's surreal video answers that.
INCISIONS - "MINE TO LOSE"
Two months after dropping new single "Gasoline," UK punks Incisions are back with another ripper, and it finds them injecting a pretty anthemic chorus into their gritty, heavy punk.
DOMAIN - 2022 PROMO
Florida metallic hardcore band Domain just dropped this new promo via DAZE, with two original crushers and a 25 Ta Life cover.
MALL GRAB - "TIMES CHANGE" (ft. NOVELIST & D DOUBLE E)
Australian electronic musician Mall Grab has shared a new song off his upcoming debut album For What I Breathe, and this one finds him offering up shuffling production and roping in grime MCs Novelist and D Double E.
I. JORDAN - "ALWAYS BEEN" & "FIRST TIME BACK"
Electronic musician I. Jordan (fka India Jordan) has released a new double single via Ninja Tune, with the glistening, gorgeously thumping "Always Been" and the more clattering, percussive "First Time Back."
LOCRIAN - "THE GLARE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE OUR SHADOW"
Experimental trio Locrain have announced a new album, New Catastrophism, recorded and mixed by J. Robbins and due August 12 via Profound Lore. The first single is the droning, seven-minute hiss of "The Glare Is Everywhere and Nowhere Our Shadow."
ZACARI - "BLISS" (ft. ISAIAH RASHAD)
TDE labelmates Zacari and Isaiah Rashad have put their heads together for this dark, chilly rap/R&B hybrid.
STELLA DONNELLY - "FLOOD"
Stella Donnelly's new album Flood is out in August (pre-order on opaque red vinyl), ad the latest single is "Flood." "This song feels like a sad little adventure," Stella says. "I wrote it in the dark depths of a Melbourne winter lockdown where it had been raining for consecutive weeks. Everyone around me was falling into their own version of depression at different times. It felt like a flood of trauma yet at the same time, we were given an opportunity of time to work through stuff that we’d been distracting ourselves with for so long prior to the pandemic."
NARROW HEAD - "T.W.I.N."
No word yet on a followup to Narrow Head's 2020 album 12th House Rock, but they did just drop this new single, "T.W.I.N.," a dose of heavy shoegaze that'll scratch a familiar itch for fans of Hum, Nothing, and Siamese Dream.
THE FLATLINERS - "SOUVENIR"
The Flatliners have shared another taste of their first album in five years, New Ruin (due 8/5 via Fat Wreck Chords/Dine Alone), and this one's a little softer than lead single "Performative Hours," but still packed with the band's trademark anthemicism.
ELI WINTER - "FOR A CHISOS BLUEBONNET"
Guitarist Eli Winter has announced a new self-titled album, due August 19 via Three Lobed, which features contributions from Yasmin Williams, Ryley Walker, David Grubbs, Cameron Knowler, Tyler Damon, jaimie branch, and more.

TOVE LO - "TRUE ROMANCE"
Alt-pop artist Tove Lo has announced a new album, DIRT FEMME, due October 14 via Pretty Swede Records / mtheory. It features SG Lewis, Channel Tres, and First Aid Kit, and first single "True Romance" finds Tove really belting it over an airy, drumless backdrop.
WU-LU - "SCRAMBLED TRICKS"
South London artist Wu-Lu has shared another track off upcoming debut album LOGGERHEAD (due 7/8 via Warp), the delightfully abrasive, rap-adjacent "Scrambled Tricks."
EYEDRESS & HOMESHAKE - "SPAGHETTI"
Los Angeles producer Eyedress has teamed with Canadian group Homeshake for a very chill new single about pasta.
DELICATE STEVE - "I CAN FLY AWAY"
“I Can Fly Away” was inspired by Helado Negro, Funkadelic, Pharoah Sanders, Marion Williams and The Clash,” says Steve Marion, aka Delicate Steve. “It features the voices of Tall Juan and Breanna Barbara, the percussion of Mauro Refosco and the drumming of Austin Vaughn along with keys by Jake Sherman. I was experiencing moments of joy creating all of these new songs. I am happiest spending my time working on music and I'm lucky that I get to share it." New album After Hours is out July 8 via ANTI-.
STRANGE LOT - "FUNNY SOUNDS"
Austin, TX's Strange Lot will release new album Funny Sounds on September 2. The title track bridges garage psych and shoegaze into a hazy rainbow.
