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, 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…
INTERNATIONAL TEACHERS OF POP - "I STOLE YER PLIMSOLES" FT. JASON WILLIAMSON OF SLEAFORD MODS
Sheffield's International Teachers of Pop, whose debut is one of the most fun, cheeky synthpop albums of the year, are back with a new single featuring Sleaford Mods' ranter Jason Williamson. Say the band: "It’s the party banger you never realised you needed - the antithesis of everything else during this period of peak consumerism and under cooked eggy bread politics... EMBRACE IT." It really is a banger.
THE PICTISH TRAIL - "BAD ALGEBRA"
Quirky Scottish folk artist Johnny Lynch will soon be back with Thumb World, his new album as The Pictish Trail, set for release February 21 via Fire Records. The first single is the clattering and catchy "Bad Algebra." “Bad Algebra is about how being in the company of certain people can make you feel more alone than if you were on your own," says Lynch. "I think that’s true of a lot of relationships, and it can be a comforting thing as well as an isolating feeling. 'You are my solitude, i’m never so alone by myself.' There can be a tendency to analyse/scrutinise your own behaviour when in the company of another.”
NERO DI MARTE - "L'ARCA"
Italian shapeshifting experimental metal band Nero Di Marte have shared another song off their upcoming album Immoto (due 1/24 via Season of Mist). Like the previous single, "L'Arca" covers a lot of ground, and manages to be both gorgeously melodic and menacingly dark.
THE COOL KIDS - "POP QUIZ" (ft. GUAPDAD 4000)
Long-running indie-rap duo The Cool Kids have teamed up with Guapdad 4000 for this undeniably fun new song.
ALEXANDRE DESPLAT - PLUMFIELD (FROM "LITTLE WOMEN" SOUNDTRACK)
“To capture the life of these four young girls on their path to adulthood, I have called in the four hands of two pianists," explains Alexandre Desplat of his score for Greta Gerwig's upcoming film adaptation of Little Women. They are surrounded by a chamber orchestra, which keeps us in the intimate world of these ‘little women.’ We recorded the score in New York City with the most wonderful musicians whose musicality and virtuosity went beyond my expectations.” Listen to "Plumfield" from his score now.
CORNERSHOP - "NO ROCK: SAVE IN ROLL"
Cornershop are back with their first album in eight years. It’s titled England is a Garden and is out March 6 via the band’s Ample Play Records. The record does not include last year’s “Double Denim Nights,” but does offer up 12 new tracks including Stones-y first single “No Rock: Save in Roll.”
KOFFEE - "W" (ft. GUNNA)
Grammy-nominated rising reggae singer Koffee follows her great Rapture EP with the new song/video "W," featuring a church choir and Atlanta rapper Gunna. Read more about it here.
