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…

BOB DYLAN - "MURDER MOST FOUL"

In the midst of our strange, awful reality, Bob Dylan returns with his first new original song in eight years, and it's a 17-minute piano ballad about the JFK murder with all kinds of other '60s references, and it's worth every minute.

HAMILTON LEITHAUSER - "DON'T CHECK THE SCORE"

"When I used to work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, my friend introduced me to 'day trading,' which is just compulsive gambling on the stock market," says Hamilton Leithauser of "Don't Check the Score" which is his new single from upcoming album The Loves of Your Life. "It can be done from your home (or work) computer. Instead of working, we would gamble all day. It was incredibly fun when you were up, and not as fun when you were down. This was around 2001, so we only had a dial up connection on one shared computer. It took like 45 seconds to login to the website to check your bet (hopefully you’d made like $55 or something). When things looked sour, you’d say 'don’t login!' Out of sight, out of mind—sort of. In reality you’d just be biting your nails thinking of nothing else...definitely not working. Anyhow, the title is a metaphor for looking the other way, or avoiding an inconvenient truth. I guess I could have called it 'Don’t Login' but I think there’s a lot more nobility in a sports metaphor than a day trading metaphor. Eventually, I stopped trading, because the house always wins."

NZCA LINES - "PURE LUXURY"

NZCA Lines, aka Michael Lovett (who is a member of Metronomy these days), is back with his first new music in a while. "Pure Luxury" is a densely layered, gurgling synthpop track that was inspired from an experience of a Manhattan heatwave in February when temperatures topped 75. "It’s a sadistic joyride set in penthouse suites where the gold trim hides a rotting plywood facade, muscle cars are bought with credit cards and barbed wire fences separate luxury resorts from the slums beyond their walls," says Michael. "The fantasy of attainment in a world that has no future.”

--

MEMORY PEARL - NUMBER 28, 1950

Absolutely Free's Moshe Fisher-Rozenberg will release Music for 7 Paintings, a solo album as Memory Pearl, on May 15 via Idée Fixe Records. The first shared track is "Number 28, 1950" which is borderline ambient, though with a little more engaement to the listener.

--

TREY ANASTASIO - "LOTUS"

"In quarantine, you tend to think a lot," wrote Phish's Trey Anastasio when sharing this song. "The fate of humanity... what's going to happen? This song is about escaping earth, to a different planet, and arriving to find a civilization that has advanced enough to survive it's flaws, but in the process, has lost it's ability to experience beauty, love, art and even hope. They've sacrificed all their flaws in favor of being completely transparent. Wishing you all love, health and hope."

--

ZELMA STONE - "DREAMLAND"

Bay area native Chloe Zelma Studebaker is releasing a new EP as Zelma Stone, Dreamland, next month, and she's shared it's dreamy title track, which fans of Beach House will likely enjoy. "My older brother Brett died in a car accident when we were teenagers," Chloe told Gorilla vs Bear. "He gave me my very first guitar lesson and is the reason I make music today. I still see him often in my dreams, which is what inspired the song 'Dreamland.' The lyrics switch between his perspective and mine, wondering what it would be like if he was still alive or could come back. Would he feel at home here? Would we make music together like I dream about?"

SUPERWOLF ( BONNIE PRINCE BILLY & MATT SWEENEY) - "YOU'LL GET EATEN TOO"

You may remember way back in the mid-'00s all new indie bands were required to have the word "wolf" in their names, hence Superwolf, the 2005 collab between Will Oldham and Matt Sweeny. Fifteen years later, Will & Matt brought Superwolf out of retirement to help East Village vegetarian join Superiority Burger and Will's label, Drag City, with this new jam.

--

CHAI - "NO MORE CAKE"

Japanese band CHAI are back with a new single and video, “No More Cake” which is their first new music since last year’s PUNK. While still working within their knowingly cute neo-kawaii style, this track is kinda heavy, as least as far as CHAI goes, and it’s easily their biggest sounding production to date.
