8 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…
SHO MADJOZI - "JOHN CENA"
South African rapper Sho Madjozi has been going viral with her new single "John Cena," which just got a studio recording for the first time thanks to A Colors Show. After it came out, the actual John Cena danced to it on Ellen.
THAT DOG. - "OLD LP" & "JUST THE WAY"
"I haven't felt like this since 1995" sings Ana Warner on "Just the Way," the new single from OLD LP, that dog.'s first album album in 22 years. The record is out Friday and the band just shared that song, in the group's classic, crunchy style, along with the orch-pop title track.
FLETCHER C JOHNSON - "PORTLAND"
Garage rock singer-songwriter Fletcher C Johnson is back with Are You Feelin' It, which is out October 14. Fletcher has been debuting songs from the LP weekly on his "Listening to Fletcher C Johnson" podcast. This week, it's the twangy "Portland" and stories of couch surfing in Portland in the early 200s. You can stream the song and listen to podcast, below. You can also catch Fletcher at his record release show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on October 18.
EXHUMED - "PLAYING WITH FEAR"
Goregrind vets Exhumed's new album Horror comes out this Friday, and they've unleashed one more single ahead of its release, the whiplash-inducing "Playing With Fear."
COLTER WALL AND THE SCARY PRAIRIE BOYS - "HAPPY REUNION" & "BOB FUDGE"
'70s-style country revivalist Colter Wall has released a new single with two cover songs, the rollicking "Happy Reunion" and the somber, melancholic "Bob Fudge."
SAY SUE ME - "GOOD PEOPLE"
Surf-inspired South Korean indie rock quartet Say Sue Me shared the A-side of a new double single that's coming out on October 4 via Damnably, "Your Book," and here's the B-side, "Good People." "This song was written with the last phrase of the song, ‘I just wish you’d spend your time with good people,’" the band writes. "When I leave my home and travel longer, I always want to have some connection with my people who are where I’m from. I'll be somehow changed after this long trip and as I get older, I feel new every day when I travel, but I don't know if it's good or bad. When I go home, I try to return to my original me anyway so that people won't be surprised by my changes. I just want you to spend time with good people while I'm away."
KURT VILE & THE SADIES - "BABY'S ARMS"
Kurt Vile is releasing a new documentary this Thursday, and it includes this new version of his 2011 song that he recorded in the Catskill Mountains with The Sadies. Read more here.
KERO KERO BONITO - CIVILIZATION I (EP STREAM)
Kero Kero Bonito have just released a brand new EP titled Civilisation I, featuring three tracks that find the trio firmly back in synthpop land after (very good) flirtations last year with indie rock and shoegaze.
