7 New Songs Out Today
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, 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.
JOLIETTE - "CONTRALUZ"
Mexico City screamo band Joliette are back with their first new song since 2019's Luz Devora, "Contraluz," and it's a towering song that finds them nailing the heavy/beautiful divide expertly.
LEIKELI47 - "CHITTY BANG"
Back in 2020, Brooklyn rapper Leikeli47 released the new song "Zoom" and said a new album called Shape Up was on the way. Still no word on that album, but now she has put out another new single, "Chitty Bang," and it's an energized new song that has us excited to hopefully hear more soon.
AGE OF APOCALYPSE - "FURY"
Hardcore-infused alt-metal band Age of Apocalypse's debut full-length Grim Wisdom arrives 1/21 via Closed Casket Activities, and here's another heavy, howling single from it.
KENDRA MORRIS - "PENNY PINCHER"
Kendra Morris (who's collaborated with DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, MF Doom, Czarface, Ghostface Killah, Dave Sitek, and others) is releasing a new album, Nine Lives, on February 18 via Karma Chief Records, and you can hear the soulful, stripped-back lead single "Penny Pincher" now.
LOVE, BURNS (MEMS COMET GAIN, CRYSTAL STILTS) - "DEAR CLAIRE"

First single "Dear Claire" is an organ-fueled slice of indiepop that recalls Felt and Lloyd Cole.
