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…
VINCE STAPLES x 6LACK x MEREBA - "YO LOVE"
As previously mentioned, there's a new Vince Staples song on the Queen & Slim soundtrack, and that song is out now. It features 6LACK and Mereba, and it sees Vince going in a chilled-out, soulful direction, which suits him well.
WOLF PARADE - "FOREST GREEN"
Wolf Parade's new album Thin Mind comes out in January, and you can read more about new single "Forest Green" here.
