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…

TAME IMPALA - "LOST IN YESTERDAY"

Tame Impala's highly-anticipated fourth LP The Slow Rush is out next month, and Kevin Parker's giving us one last preview of the record before its release, which is the shuffling "Lost In Yesterday," whose skipping rhythm recalls "The Moment" from 2015's Currents. Lyrically, Kevin discusses feelings of facing your past demons, which pairs well with the track's hazy, groovy instrumental.

THE MEN - "CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD"

The Men just announced their eighth album Mercy, out February 14 via Sacred Bones, and the album's lead single is the '80s radio rock-inspired "Children All Over the World," which shows the band drifting even further away from their rawer punk roots.

BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN - "THE ROVING"

The trio of Anais Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats, and Josh Kaufman unveiled another track off their upcoming self-titled debut, the reimagined traditional song "The Roving." "These 500-year-old lyrics are so deeply applicable," Eriic says. "'The Roving' could be the plot of an ’80s teen movie: 'I had a wild summer with this awesome girl then she broke my heart!' How incredible is it that as humans we still just want to love and have sex and feel sad and fight?” Anais continues, "everyone will recognize this story, where you detect the littlest flicker in your lover’s eye, and you know it’s the beginning of the end. We added a singalong chorus so everyone could bond about this!"

BAMBARA - "HEAT LIGHTNING"

Bambara have shared a second song from their upcoming album Stray. "Heat Lightning" is dark and smoky barn-burner featuring one of the album's lyrical characters, Death. Frontman Reid Bateh discusses the song, and the new album, with Joe From IDLES over at The Talkhouse: "For the most part Death is doing his work in the background, or even between, other people’s stories but there are a few songs where I wanted to give him the spotlight. 'Heat Lighting' is the first of these songs on record. It’s an introduction to Death in his element, barreling down the highway listening to news of destruction on the radio while stuffing his face with candy." That scenario plays out in the song's video, too:

ALGIERS - "WE CAN'T BE FOUND"

Algiers' new album, There is No Year, is out next week and here's one more preview before the whole thing is out. "We Can't Be Found" is a soaring anthem, that works in a little dubby trip hop. It also comes with a striking video. “I always feel the most successful music videos are the ones that are reflective and convey the mood of the song to the listener over everything else,” says guitarist Lee Tesche. “In this instance, we collaborated with the artist Lloyd Benjamin, trying to frame some of his sculpture work in a more abstracted way, referencing the urban dystopian cityscapes found in the German expressionist films of the 1930s. The result aspires to be somewhere in between the unsettling work of Darius Khondji and the set design of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari or Fritz Lang's Metropolis.”

WOLF PARADE - "JULIA TAKE YOUR MAN HOME"

Wolf Parade are releasing their fifth album, and second post-hiatus, Thin Mind, later this month, and they've shared another single from it, "Julie Take Your Man Home."

I’ve never carved shapes that look like dicks into anything."

--

NADA SURF - "SO MUCH LOVE"

New Nada Surf single "So Much Love" is "a song that celebrates good will between people," says frontman Matthew Caws. "Sometimes it can be hard to remember that it's there. But it's all around us. Small things add up. A little tolerance and acceptance can be built on. We're good at love and being kind. It comes naturally to us, but so do other things. You just have to keep looking for the right way to lean, it's worth everything." Nada Surf's Never Not Together is out February 7.
