9 New Songs Out Today
So many artists, so little time. Each week we review five 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…
DAVILA 666 - "HUESOS VIEJOS"
Puerto Rican garage rockers Davila 66 will soon be back with Que Viva El Veneno ("Long Live Poison"), their first album in five years. Details are still to be announced but you can get an early taste via the first single "Huesos Viejos" ("Old Bones") which is a real stomper that's heavy on attitude.
MEGA BOG - "TRUTH IN THE WILD"
Erin Birgy will release her new album as Mega Bog, Dolphine, on June 28 and she's just shared the video for "Truth in the Wild." The song is another of her cosmic, jazzy folk songs -- she's not quite like anybody else -- and director Vanessa Haddad says the video, "melds inspiration from early Top of the Pops-style live-music performances and the science-fiction worlds of Ursula K. Leguin, especially her story 'Diary of a Rose.' In the story, a 'psychoscopist' uses new technology to view the projected subconscious imagery of her patient."
RVG - "DYING ON THE VINE" (JOHN CALE COVER)
Australian band RVG, who are currently on tour with Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, have a new 7" and the b-side features a cover of John Cale's "Dying on the Vine" from his 1985 album Artificial Intelligence. "I’m a huge fan of this period of Cale’s music," says RVG singer/guitarist Romy Vager. "It’s a strange balance of honest and grandiose pain, it’s like watching a car full of cocaine drive over a cliff. I guess that’s something I’ve always tried to do with the band: The kind of performance where you’re trying to make people feel anything but good about themselves. We played this song at our first gig and people have been bugging us to record it ever since so I’m glad that it’s finally around."
THE BLACK WATCH - "MAD"
John Andrew Fredrick has been releasing music as The Black Watch since the '80s and will release his latest, Magic Johnson, on August 9. "Mad" shows off his skills as songwriter, dabbling in orch-pop and gothy romance simultaneously.
NOMAD STONES - "BEHIND THE TRIGGER"
Not only did Cave In just release a new album last week, Cave In's Adam McGrath and John Robert Conners are now gearing up to release a new album with their band Nomad Stones (which also features bassist Charlie Coffou), Unriddled, on July 12 via Brutal Panda. Lead single "Behind the Trigger" isn't much like Cave In at all; instead, it's a dose of driving, power pop-tinged punk. It's a ripper.
BIG K.R.I.T. - "K.R.I.T. HERE"
Big K.R.I.T.'s new album K.R.I.T. Iz Here comes out in July, and we wrote more about lead single "K.R.I.T. Here" here.
BARONESS - GOLD & GREY (ALBUM STREAM)
BAT FOR LASHES - "KIDS IN THE DARK"
THE RACONTEURS - "BORED AND RAZED"
