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 - "MY FRIEND"

The eighth taste of Paramore singer Hayley Williams' debut solo album Petals For Armor is here. This is a more chilled-out song, and it's another promising taste of this highly anticipated LP.

ANGEL OLSEN - "ALL MIRRORS" (JOHNNY JEWEL REMIX)

“I’ve been listening to Chromatics for years but I never thought I’d get the chance to meet them or work with Johnny,” says Angel Olsen of this very Chromatics-y remix of the title track from last year's All Mirrors. “It’s always interesting to me what other people hear in something, how one slight movement can change a song completely. I love how he took my vocal lead melody and followed it, making a completely different route for 'All Mirrors' as a wonder-dream dance song.”

WASHED OUT - "TOO LATE"

Chillwave survivor Washed Out, who is back on Sub Pop after an album for Stones Throw, is back with a new single and a video that is slightly different than the one he'd planned originally. "I’d spent months planning a music video for a new song called 'Too Late,'" says Washed out alter ego Ernest Greene. "My inspiration was a Mediterranean sunset I saw late last year, and the plan was to shoot on the coast of Italy with a team of UK and European collaborators." Coronavirus got in the way, however, so Greene turned to Washed Out fans to submit footage. "I went in thinking if I got 100 clips, I’d have enough to make the video I wanted to make. 30 minutes in, I had the 100 clips, and a few days in, I had over 1,200 clips - from London, Bali, Okinawa, Ann Arbor, Dubrovnik and a few hundred other places around the world. It was pretty amazing for me to see the vids and pics flood in like they did."

KAITLYN AURELIA SMITH - "THE STEADY HEART"

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith was set to be on tour with Caribou right now, supporting her upcoming album The Mosaic of Transformation which is out next month. Those plans are on hold but you can get a taste of the amazing visuals that were created for her live show via the video for "The Steady Heart" which turns the human form into gorgeous kaleidoscopic images. The song itself is warm and ethereal, with layers of synths and voices washing over you like gentle waves.

JARBOE - "MAN OF HATE"

Former Swans member Jarboe, who has collaborated with Neurosis, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Jesu, Father Murphy and more over the years, releases new album Illusory next week and here's another haunting, gothy folk track from it featuring her otherworldly vocals. "Man of Hate" a reworked version of her song from 1991's Thirteen Masks and the accompanying video is a perfect, eerie match.

--

PROTO IDIOT - "MOUNTAIN"

--

YOUTH CODE - "PUZZLE"

"'Puzzle' is a song written with the mindset of what happens when everything is ruined and defeat is the ever racing thought that paces the mind," say industrial duo Youth Code. "Given the current climate, artistic individuals being forced to take pause whatsoever can be very difficult and harrowing. Hopefully with continuing creativity and furthering new breath into these tracks, we will have given way to inspiration for all and added just a little more gasoline to our internal burning fires." It's pretty killer, and you can also add your own touch to it by downloading the song's files from The Armed's ISOLATE/CREATE website and remixing/reworking/doing whatever you want with them.

--

ACXDC - "COPSUCKER"

Here's another whiplash-inducer from LA grinders ACxDC's upcoming Satan Is King. "Anyone that supports cops, politicians, judges, military, dictators, nazis, fascists and generally authoritarians of that ilk are copsuckers. Bootlicking of any type other than BDSM is for posers. Firefighters are chill," they tell Decibel.

DEVON WILLIAMS - "CIRCUS WORLD"

Devon Williams will release new album A Tear in the Fabric on May 1 via Slumberland and he's just released this very jangly, very of-the-moment single and video. "'Circus World’ is just feeling like everything is absurd, and finding the humor in it makes it a little more palatable," say Devon. "Am I a joke for always trying to find to humor in the world? Or is the world full of clowns? Really, it’s tough to decide when the joke has gone too far. The video was made by Mike Cullen. He’s made a handful of videos for me—’Pendulum,’ ‘Puzzle,’ ‘Revelations.’ He and I pulled clips that represented the harsh contrast you’d find on TV and internet. It’s disturbing to try and navigate, and I think the clips show the absurdity of that contrast.”

NEIL YOUNG - "SHUT IT DOWN 2020"

Neil Young has shared a new version of ecological anthem “Shut it Down,” originally on last year’s album with Crazy Horse, Colorado, that Neil says was inspired by fans reaching out to him online, expressing the increased relevance of the song since the coronavirus pandemic.
