Tyler the Creator, Kurt Vile, RHCP, Fireboy DML, etc.

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 metal comes out. We post music news, track premieres and more all day. We are updating 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.

And running from it. As fast as you fucking can.

I think it’s about trying to find moments where you can really connect with someone in the midst of all the chaos going on in the world.

FLOCK OF DIMES – “IT JUST GOES ON”

Flock of Dimes Releases a Companion to Last Year’s rose head, Head of Roses: Ghost Limb, on April 15 via Sub Pop, bringing together never-before-seen demos, live performances, and covers. From there, she shared, “It continues.” “It’s possibly one of the simplest, most straightforward songs I’ve ever done (and also one of my favorites!) – so it only made sense to try to create a video that was just as simple and heartfelt,” she says. “I haven’t been to many parties in the last few years (for obvious reasons), so it was especially surreal to stage this one with some of my real friends in Durham, NC. was fake but the feelings were real. Thank you so much to my friends for letting me invite them to a party and then forcing them to watch me be such a bummer all the time.”

HOT RED CHILI PEPPERS – “NOT THE ONLY”

“Flea had assembled a drum machine and a bass song in his cobwebbed garage. It wasn’t what you hear today for ‘Not The One,’ because the bridge was the verse and the chorus was the bridge, and it was completely reversed,” Anthony Kiedis spoke to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about their new single from the upcoming Unlimited love. “Every day after band practice, I go home and listen to what we did that day over and over and over and over again hoping it triggers something or I hear the right melody or something, anything. In this case, I started hearing this whole song on the way back, but completely reversed from how he arranged it. When you start something, you get married a I came the next day and said, ‘Flea, I know that’s not what you had in mind, but is it okay if I sing the verse over the chorus and the chorus? chorus over the bridge? He’s like, yeah, do what you want. I was like, ‘Really?’ He says “Yeah, yeah, whatever”…because he wrote a beautiful thing. I thought maybe he wanted to keep it as it was written. That day, he m was so supportive and it was super helpful. I think I was going through a very lonely and introspective month. This idea came from I think I know who you are, but maybe I don’t. You think that you know who i am but maybe you don’t and especially in intimate relationships, like we know we’re all presenting something and people always have an idea but what if we we were showing the worst from the start?

He shared this first single and this sultry video. “I’d like to leave some mystery here, but do some research on the shifts that happened while planning Central Park,” said Carlos, who grew up in New York. “I went to high school on E. 94th street, so most of my first relationship was in its paths and woods. It’s truly a frozen moment in time for me, a personal story – and yet, let’s take a moment to recognize how our personal histories unfold in a continuum, and how every inch of ground we walk is shared with the histories and histories of all who have come before us.This land was stolen, and then stolen again , then stolen again – all for her I could share our beautiful moment. So whenever I find myself in a new place, I pause before talking about ‘my street!'”
