0

So many artists, so little time. Every week, we review a handful of new albums (from all genres), round up even more new music that we’d call “indie” and talk about what’s coming out of metal. We post music news, track premieres and more all day. We update a weekly playlist of some of our current favorite tracks. Here is a daily summary with a bunch of interesting and recently released songs in one place.

ROSALIA – “TERIYAKI CHICKEN”

Rosalía’s long-awaited new album MOTOMAMI arrives March 18 via Columbia, and here’s the latest single, “Chicken Teriyaki.” It was written with El Guincho, Sky Rompiendo, Rauw Alejandro and Q-Tip, and it’s a super fun song that embraces its pop/hip hop/reggaeton side.

LOOP – “FERMION”

The great Shoegaze/psych LOOP dropped another misty burner from Sonancy, their first album in decades, which comes out in March. Dive into the motorik drone and the video is good too:

MAGIC GREHLIN (TEENAGE HALLOWEEN, ALGERNON CADWALLADER, etc.) – STAINED LANTERN FLY PE

Magic Grehlin is the band of Tank Bergman (Algernon Cadwallader), Luk Henderiks (Teenage Halloween), Lynsey Vandenberg (Well Wisher), Guy Pollioni (Stag Party, Coward) and Justin Lombardo (Love Tapes), and they just returned with a new four-song EP of fiery indie/emo/punk songs that fans of the members’ other bands definitely shouldn’t sleep on.

DEB NEVER – “CRUTCHES”

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Deb Never has collaborated with slowthai and Brockhampton, among others, and now she’s shared her first single of the year, “Crutches,” a propulsive alt-pop track with grungy vibes.

KEHLANI – “LITTLE STORY”

Kehlani’s third album, blue water roadis on the way, and they’ve shared a new single from it, a melodious R&B track accompanied by a video they made with Alexandra Thurmond.

TWAIN – “KING OF FOOL”

Twain (the project of Matthew Davidson, a frequent Big Thief collaborator and former member of The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion and Deslondes) has shared a new single via Keeled Scales, and it’s a gorgeous rustic folk song.

GLACIER VEINS – “EMBS”

Glacier Veins have shared the third single from their long-awaited second album Lunar reflection (due 3/11 via Equal Vision), and this one finds them toning down their usual dreamy punk sound in favor of ’90s-style alternative rock, infused with acoustic guitar. They’re great at that stuff too.

HODGY – “PEOPLE CHANGE” (LEFT BRAIN prod.)

After making a comeback with recent single “Hodgy,” the former Odd Future member reunites with his MellowHype partner Left Brain on new song “People Change.” I hope more new music is on the way, because these songs prove he still has it.

TOTALLY SLOW – “THE LOST ART OF GETTING CLOSE”

North Carolina punks Totally Slow followed last year’s one Casual Drag (Refresh Records) with this new single, and like this LP, it’s a ripper.

DESTRUCTION – “NO FAITH IN HUMANITY”

As mentioned, German thrash legends Destruction (whose only original member is bassist/vocalist Schmier) are preparing to release a new album Diabolical 4/8 via Napalm Records. It might be a different lineup, but Destruction still knows how to produce 80s-style thrash songs.

KEVIN DEVINE – “HOW CAN I HELP YOU?” (ACOUSTIC)

Kevin Devine went in a more synthetic direction on recent single “How Can I Help You?”, but if you were wondering how it would sound in the stripped-down acoustic style of his debut, you’re in luck. This gorgeous rendition is exactly that.

TRAAMS – “SLEEPER”

British band TRAAMS are back with a dreamy new single “Sleeper” which is a duet with Soffie Viemose from Danish band Lowly. “For a while we were pretty determined to stick with this track as an instrumental,” says vocalist/guitarist Stu Hopkins. “It wasn’t until the day before we left for the studio that Padley sent out a new demo, quietly singing into his laptop in the dead of night. Originally serving as a mood piece that would tie a few of the others together , once we started adding vocals, Sleeper fast became one of our favorite tracks. It tackles the themes of time, desire and belonging that we have throughout the album, but they are the lightest and most human on this track.

HANNAH DIAMOND – “LOOKING AT THE CEILING”

PC music artist Hannah Diamond has released her debut album, reflectionsin 2019, and she’s back with a glitchy new single, “Staring at the Ceiling.”

SALOON DION – “HEY HEY”

Saloon Dion is a new band from Bristol, England, making danceable, post-punk influenced indie rock. The new single “Hey Hey” should please fans of Yard Act.

DIANE COFFEE – FORECAST (FEAT. DEEP SEA DIVER)

Diane Coffee, aka Shaun Fleming, will release a new album With people on April 29 via Polyvinyl which was produced by Shaun’s former Foxygen bandmate Jonathan Rado. “For almost 15 years, I had this ‘on again, off again’ relationship,” Shaun said of the album’s lead single, “Forecast,” which features Deep Sea Diver. “It was always very hot, very intense and always ended very badly. But no matter how awful the ending was, how bad we knew we were for each other, we always found each other. to be thrown back into it. I think deep down we loved the chaos, the madness. We were the definition of a “fatal attraction.”

CHRISTIAN LEE HUTSON – “AGE DIFFERENCE”

Christian Lee Hutson’s new album To leave was released in April and the latest single is “Age Difference”, a dark character study accompanied by mournful horns.

CY DUNE – “MORE MORE”

Cy Dune, the bluesy garage punk solo project of Seth Olinsky of Akron/Family, will release a new album, Against the face, next week and here’s one last look before we can dig it all in. “My favorite part of this song is the out-of-control feel of the drums – the way those fast, derailed drums alternate with the slower, almost crooner-like drag of the vocal verse,” says Olinsky. “The guitar solo is just a simple leap off a cliff, and I love how it cuts so sharply into nothingness. There’s an electricity to the song that evokes a wildness and a spirit that keeps me provide ecstatic and visceral excitement.

MONTAIGNE & ​​DAVID BYRNE – “ALWAYS BE YOU”

David Byrne duets with Australian pop artist Montaigne on his effervescent new single, “Always Be You”. While he admits he hadn’t heard of her when she contacted him, he quickly became a fan. “How many artists would reference the funny Daniel Kitson monologue?” David notes. “But with Jess, that eccentricity translates into genuine honesty and transparency about her feelings — feelings many of us might be ashamed or afraid to admit — all set to incredibly infectious tunes. Brave, Weird and catchy. Nice to be invited and love how the songs turned out.

HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR – “GRACE” FT ELIN EY

Hercules & Love Affair announced In Amber, their first album in five years, which will be released on June 17. This one is a bit different, with Andy Butler going beyond the disco and house sounds associated with the band, citing everything from Throbbing Gristle, Dead Can Dance and Diamanda Galas as influences this time around, and much of the album has was made with ANOHNI (who sang on “Blind” when they debuted in 2008). It’s the first single.

DENZEL CURRY – “ZATOICHI” (ft. SLOWTHAI)

Denzel Curry and slowthai’s 2019 single “Psycho” is a total gem in both rappers’ discographies, so it’s exciting that they’ve teamed up again on the Powers Pleasant-produced “Zatoichi.” It’s the second single from Denzel’s upcoming album, and you can find out more here.

LAVISHER – “DAYDREAM”
