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…

RHYE - "BEAUTIFUL"

Rhye (who used to be the duo of Milosh and Quadron's Robin Hannibal but is now just Milosh) is back with his first single in two years, "Beautiful," which is as airy and smooth as you'd expect. It also comes with a livestream visual loop.

KEHLANI - "GRIEVING" (ft. JAMES BLAKE)

R&B star Kehlani's new album It Was Good Until It Wasn't is out today, and among other things, it features this pretty cool duet with James Blake.

--

ELLEFSON (MEGADETH) - "OVER NOW" (POST MALONE COVER)

It's all Post Malone all the time lately. Post Malone covered Nirvana, Dashboard Confessional covered Post Malone, and now Megadeth bassist/co-founder David Ellefson has done a heavy metal cover of Post Malone's "Over Now."

THE STREETS - "WHERE THE FUCK DID APRIL GO"

"Where the fuck did April go?" is right. And yes, this was very much written in response to the pandemic. Mike Skinner says, "I wrote this last week. It's a weird time isn't it. We were looking forward to the Summer just like everyone else, festivals and gigs all there, new music, new stage set - but this has taken the wind from everyone’s sails. And none of us know quite how to cope with it all. I just wrote a tune the same way other people might talk to a therapist!"

--

NICOLE ATKINS - "MIND ERASER"

Nicole Atkins has shared this soulful, swaggering song off her upcoming album Italian Ice.

--

LIL TJAY - "ZOO YORK" (ft. FIVIO FOREIGN & POP SMOKE)

Lil Tjay's new State of Emergency project is out now, and especially of note is this song featuring a typically booming verse from the late Pop Smoke.

--

NAV - "RUN IT UP" (ft. POP SMOKE)

Lil Tjay isn't the only rapper with a project out today featuring the late Pop Smoke. Weeknd associate NAV's new Good Intentions features Pop in more of a sing-rap mode than usual on "Run It Up."

--

GORDON KOANG X GINOLI - "MAL MI GOA" (GINOLI REMIX)

Legendary South Sudanese musician and master of the banjo-like thom instrument, Gordon Koang has shared this new remix of his single "Mal Mi Goa" which is a collaboration with Ginoli (aka Pond drummer James Ireland). The video for it is very joyous, and this is the first single from the Music In Exile REMIXED EP, due out June 5th, which is part of a series of collaborations between producers from Australia's burgeoning electronic scene and artists from a refugee and migrant background.

YOUNG GUV - "CAUGHT LOOKIN'" (LIL UGLY MANE REMIX)

Young Guv, aka Fucked Up's Ben Cook in powerpop mode, has turned over his track to Lil Ugly Mane (Travis Miller) who has delivered this club-ready remix that puts an early-'90s spin on the track. "Travis and I moved to NYC a couple years back at the same time," says Ben. "That summer while I was writing and recording GUV I & II he was the only person I said yes to hanging out with really. The hangovers will traumatize me for the rest of time. We did a No Warning / Ugly Mane tour that year, and we've been meaning to link on some music for a while now. He moved up to 'The Mountain,' hit me for the stems for this track, and quickly turned around one of my favourite collabo joints ever. Anyone who is an Ugly Mane fan or friend of Travis knows how brilliant he is. He's a special cat. I am deeply honoured he touched this like he did. On some UK street shit. We are pleased to offer everyone something they can bump loud during this strange ass transformative time."

ULTHAR - "CHURN"

Bay Area death metallers Ulthar have shared the second single (and opening track) off their anticipated new album Providence, and this two-minute, whiplash-inducing scorcher is even more intense than the great first single.

--

JIMMY URINE & SERJ TANKIAN - FUKTRONIC

Mindless Self Indulgence's Jimmy Urine and System Of A Down's Serj Tankian have released their long-in-the-making collaborative Fuktronic album, which they call "the ultimate soundtrack for a one of a kind British Gangster Film you'll wish existed."

--

DOUGIE POOLE - "LOS ANGELES"

"For a couple years, I talked a lot about moving to LA," says outsider country artist Dougie Poole of this new single. "I’ve got a handful of very dear friends out there. I love the food, the plants. I think about Nashville, too, but the time never seems to be right. When I’m being hard on myself, I think it is fear or maybe laziness that keeps me around. But I think that home has a powerful pull. This is where my people are, for the most part. The country greats sing about rambling, but I’m a pretty hardcore homebody." The video, meanwhile, pays homage to Star Trek: The Next Generation. Dougie's album is out June 12 via Wharf Cat.

--

SHENSEEA - "BAD HABIT"

Jamaican dancehall singer Shenseea continues to rise (and cross over with American hip hop audiences), and if she keeps putting out super fun songs like "Bad Habit," her rise won't be stopping any time soon.

--

ALEX THE ASTRONAUT - "LOST"

Australian musician and songwriter Alex the Astronaut has announced her debut album, The Theory Of Absolutely Nothing, due out August 21 via Nettwerk, and shared new single "Lost." "The song is pivoted around a moment of change when someone is walking new ground and they really don’t know what’s to come," Alex says. "For me it’s one of those 'one goes out, one comes in' times when you lose what you hoped things would be like but you get to move through a different world that maybe will show you something you didn’t know you would see."

--

SHEFF G - "NO SUBURBAN PT. 2"

Sheff G has been one of the biggest breakouts in New York drill, and it's not hard to hear why - this new single is great. It's off his upcoming debut album One And Only, due next week (May 15 via EMPIRE).

--

JUSTUS PROFFIT - "WEAKER EVERYDAY"

--

GILLIAN WELCH - "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY"

--

CUT COPY - "LOVE IS ALL WE SHARE"

Australian synthpop combo Cut Copy are back with their first new music in three years. “Love is All We Share” may not be what you’re expecting from this band known for four-on-the-floor indie dance festival bangers; it’s mega chill, minimal, decidedly ethereal and quite lovely.

--

JOE GODDARD (HOT CHIP) AND HAYDEN THORPE (WILD BEASTS) - "UNKNOWN SONG"

Domino labelmates Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Hayden Thorpe (ex Wild Beasts) have teamed up for jubilant house banger “Unknown Song.” It’s a real peanut butter cup moment — two great tastes that taste great together — recalling Erasure or Hercules and Love Affair.

--
