Natasha Khan has released another new track under her “Bat for Lashes” project titled “Jasmine,” which will appear on her upcoming album Lost Girls, which is set to be released on September 6th via “AWAL Recordings.” In true “Bat for Lashes” fashion Lost Girls is a concept album set in a “fully formed parallel universe in which gangs of marauding female bikers roam our streets, teenagers make out on car hoods, and a powerful female energy casts spells and leave clues for us to follow.” Her new track “Jasmine” is named after the album’s protagonist and much like her preceding singles is a lush synth-heavy joy ride that truly does evoke the feeling of roaming the streets at night.

Following their previously released lead single “Shoulderblades,” the band have released a new track titled “Going Norway,” and with a new sense of rejuvenation, they’re pushing their usual anxiety-inducing, abrasive, and scuzzy style to the next level. Their new album The Talkies will be released on September 27th. You can watch the music video for “Going Norway” below:

 

Chelsea Wolfe Shares New Song “Be All Things”

Chelsea Wolfe is set to release her new album Birth of Violence on September 13th on “Sargent House” records, and following her previously released tracks “The Mother Road” and “American Darkness,” Wolfe has released yet another track titled “Be All Things.” Wolfe has revealed that the song is about “navigating the world as a woman, reconciling the soft and the strong, balancing the warrior and the goddess, and wanting to be everything and nothing at the same time.” “Telling stories through song allows me to explore so many facets of myself, so many lives within. Some days I want to be quiet and reach my roots into the earth, and some days I want to spring up from the ground and be all things,” Wolfe explains, and that concept is beautifully expressed on “Be All Things” with it’s acoustic guitar-driven Folk-leanings and atmospheric vocals. It’s looking like Birth of Violence will be a big departure from her previous “Doom Metal” heavy album Hiss Spun with more focus on stripped down “Gothic Folk.” You can watch the video for “Be All Things” below:

JPEGMAFIA Shares New Song “Jesus Forgive Me, I Am a Thot”

It’s looking like JPEGMAFIA is teasing a new upcoming album. This morning the experimental rapper shared a brand new song titled “Jesus forgive me, I Am a Thot,” and it’s as uncompromising, loud, off-kilter as you’d expect it to be, but this track does offer an element of “Pop” and an “R&B” inspired auto-tuned hook that somehow fits amidst the chaos. Peggy has also said “The disappointment cums soon. Just a taste before I waste you.” Hopefully that means we’ll be getting a follow-up to last year’s Veteran.

It’s finally happening! No really, it’s happening. “Tool” have returned with their first piece of new music since their last album 10,000 Days, which came out 13 years ago. The track is titled “Fear Inoculum,” and it’s the title track of their upcoming album set to be released on August 30th. The 10 minute song sounds very much like a Tool song. It’s heavy, drony, tribal, and epic. Would you expect any less from Tool? It’s been a big year for Tool fans. The band’s whole back catalogue is now available on all streaming services AND we’re getting a new album? The memes have officially ended. Tool’s back. You can listen to “Fear Inoculum” below:

BROCKHAMPTON are back after what feels like ages since their last album Iridescence. Well, it hasn’t been that long, but in BROCKHAMPTON years that’s a long time to wait considering the prolific boy band are constantly active. Their new album Ginger is set to be released sometime this month, and the group have released the album’s first single “I Been Born Again,” which also has a music video to accompany it.

Sleater-Kinney Share New Song “Can I Go On”

It’s been a rough year for Sleater-Kinney and their fans following the departure of drummer Janet Weiss, but Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker are without a doubt moving on and will continue to tour and release their new album The Center Won’t Hold despite this setback. We all know the band will persevere, but it’s still heartbreaking to see Janet Weiss go. Good news is we’ll be able to hear Janet Weiss on one more Sleater-Kinney album. The Center Won’t Hold produced by St. Vincent is set to be released on August 16th, and with what we’ve heard so far, it’s clear that the band have gone in a completely different direction on this new album, parting ways with the raucous raw energy of their early work, the Rock & Roll-tinged style of their later work, and the danceable grooves of their previous album No Cities To Love in favor of Art Rock balladry that sees Carrie Brownstein take up the majority of lead vocals. Their new track “Can I Go On” is quite possibly their most poppy sounding track by far, but the lyrical content deals with existentialism and depression which can truly resonate with someone who’s going through it.
