Green Day, Alkaline Trio, Bib, Buck Meek & more


So many artists, so many songs, 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, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

BUCK MEEK – “CUERO DUDES” & “BEAUTY OPENS DOORS”

Just ahead of his January tour, Big Thief guitarist Buck Meek has shared two new songs: “Cuero Dudes” is a rework of “Cyclades” from last year’s Haunted Mountain, and “Beauty Opens Doors” is a song from the album sessions that Buck felt didn’t quite fit the record.

1999 WRITE THE FUTURE + EYEDRESS – “RUN THE FADE”

1999 WRITE THE FUTURE, the new media and art collective collective from 88rising, have shared their latest collab single, “rUN tHE FaDE,” which features Eyedress. This one’s got Eyedress’ signature, hazy, shoegazy sound all over it and comes with a surreal video directed by Bee Eyes and featuring comedian Tim Robinson.

SAVAK – “LEASH BITER”

Brooklyn’s SAVAK have announced their sixth album, Flavors of Paradise, which will be out March 1 via Peculiar Works / Ernest Jenning Record Co. The band recorded it in a marathon three-day session at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studios in Chicago with Matthew Barnhart behind the boards. The urgency of the sessions definitely translates to first single “Leash Biter,” which mixes pop hooks and simmering post-punk tension.

GREEN DAY – “ONE EYED BASTARD”

Green Day have shared the fourth Saviors single, and this one finds them exploring their riff rock side. “‘One Eyed Bastard’ started off as just a riff that I had — a shuffle, almost like a Black Sabbath kind of riff,” Billie Joe Armstrong says.

ALKALINE TRIO – “VERSIONS OF YOU”

Dan Andriano takes the lead on the latest single from Alkaline Trio’s Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs, and it’s another fine example of the veteran band’s grim pop punk.

ERICK THE ARCHITECT – “EZEKIEL’S WHEEL” (ft. GEORGE CLINTON)

Erick the Architect of Flatbush Zombies goes in a psychedelic funk direction on new single “Ezekiel’s Wheel,” and it features one of the pioneers of that genre, George Clinton.

BIB – “TWO FACED PLANET” / “BITTER MIND”

Ohama psychedelic hardcore punks Bib have announced a new EP, Biblical, due January 26 via Quality Control HQ (following releases on Deranged Records and Pop Wig). It was made with Arthur Rizk, and two noisy, fucked-up sounding songs are out now.

MALI OBOMSAWIN & MAGDALENA ABREGO – “BELIEVER”

Mali Obomsawin and Magdalena Abrego latest duo single is the atmospheric “Believer,” which is accompanied by a video directed by Magdalena and Lokotah Sanborn.

BOB VYLAN – “HUNGER GAMES”

Grime duo Bob Vylan have shared another taste of upcoming album Humble As The Sun (due April 5), and this one finds them going pretty fully into rap-metal territory.

RITES OF SPRINGFIELD – “POWER’S OUT”

Maplewood, NJ punks Rites of Springfield have been dropping singles from an upcoming album, and the latest is a scrappy, catchy ripper called “Power’s Out.”

ASTRIT ISMAILI – “MISS KOSOVO” FT. MYKKI BLANCO

Astrit ISmaili’s new album The First Flower is due out on February 23, and new single “Miss Kosovo” featured Mykki Blanco and follows Ismaili’s 2019 performance “MISS.”

ANIKA PYLE – “ARIZONA”

Anika Pyle has announced a new EP, Four Corners, and you can read about lead single “Arizona” here.

LIAM GALLAGHER & JOHN SQUIRE’S DEBUT SINGLE “JUST ANOTHER RAINBOW”

It’s a Manchester dream collab for Oasis and Stone Roses fans with Liam Gallagher and John Squire teaming up for what sounds like an album. This is the first taste.
