Hear …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s New Single “A Million Random Digits”

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten news from rock act …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, but the band have been hard at work. Their newest record, IX, drops October 20 (pre-orders ongoing here). To celebrate the upcoming release, they’re streaming single “A Million Random Digits” now on Line of Best Fit.

The song is a quick three minutes with primal drums making way for dark guitar riffs. If they’re saying anything, it’s that they’re coming back with teeth growling, per usual. According to the band, the track title comes from a stolen …

BadBadNotGood Release New Single “Velvet”

Canadian hip-hop-infused jazz trio Badbadnotgood released their third LP, III, earlier this year, and now they’re back with a new single titled “Velvet.” Last we heard from them, they were playing alongside Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown on “Six Degrees,” but this sees a quieter side of the group.

If your day is off to a rough start, relax. “Velvet” sees the three sprucing things up with delicate piano solos and steady jazz drumming that’s quick to mellow you out. There’s a little saxophone partway through that gets rowdy, but other than that it’s a smooth trip …

Charli-XCX-Sucker

Listen to Charli XCX’s New Song “London Queen”

If British singer, songwriter, and all around badass Charli XCX moving her new album’s release date back to December 16 has you down (or even later for you UK folks), fear no more. The highly-anticipated sophomore album, Suckernow has a new single for fans to play on repeat until the holidays: “London Queen.”

The single rides on a punk bass line and peppy rhythm, teasing relations to the Ramones with several shouts of “oy” while she sings about her move to LA from the UK. There’s a huge fist-pumping chorus and endless rebellious angst, but its roots are …

Joey Badass

Hear Two New Joey Bada$$ Singles “Get Paid” and “Christ Conscious”

Hip hop is getting some sharp songs today. Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ is on the brink of dropping his debut LP, B4.DA.$$, that’s already given us a peak of his upcoming official sound with “Big Dusty.” Now we’re getting a look farther into the record with outtake “Get Paid” and lead single “Christ Conscious.”

The raucous “Get Paid” sees Joey Bada$$ laying down the law and nailing his usual lines. The fact that this got cut from the record sets the bar pretty high for what will stay in the tracklist. Now that “Christ Conscious” is in our …

Azealia Banks 2012

Azealia Banks Shares New Song “Chasing Time”

Last we heard from Harlem rapper Azealia Banks, she had dropped a music video for her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective.” Now the buzz girl has shared a new song called “Chasing Time” and we may not be able to listen to anything else all day.

“Chasing Time” sees Banks laying down a dreamy swirl of smooth production and quick, rounded raps. It seems ever since she cut herself from Interscope, Banks is shaping her extremely delayed album, Broke With Expensive Taste, exactly how she wants to. If she wanted to prove she’s more than …

RL Grime Takes It Slow On “Reminder” (Feat. How To Dress Well)

Henry Steinway has mainly utilized RL Grime as an outlet for his trap offerings not suited for Clockwork, but unlike the recently released “Core,” today’s release finds the producer entering completely new territory as Grime. Featuring How to Dress Well, “Reminder” is best described as a The Weeknd-esque R&B cut with sensual crooning and a slow, atmospheric beat suited for relaxation rather than getting rowdy. It’s a surprising route for an electronic scene staple to take, sure, but he absolutely makes it work.

Be sure to give “Reminder” a listen after the jump, and if you enjoy the track, feel …

Flying Lotus You're Dead!

Flying Lotus Shares New Song “Coronus, The Terminator”

Producer, electronic musician, and general genius Flying Lotus drops his highly-anticipated new album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records on October 7. It’s a massive 19-track release that is following up 2012′s brilliant Until The Quiet Comes with a more jazz-oriented setup and guest star studded flair. In anticipation of the release, he’s shared single “Coronus, The Terminator.”

Unlike the rhythmic flurry of “Moment of Hesitation” and the edgy point of Kendrick Lamar collab “Never Catch Me,” this song strolls down the psychedelic route with a leisurely yawn. Things begin to get dark at one point, …

Jessie Ware Tough Love

Listen to Jessie Ware’s New Single “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe”

There’s only a few weeks left until UK singer Jessie Ware shares her follow-up album to 2012′s breakout Devotion. The album, titled Tough Love, drops October 21 via PMR/Island Records. In support of the release, she’s shared single “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe.” It’s a bit different than the gorgeous “Say You Love Me” and the title track, but maybe that’s because fellow R&B crooner Miguel helped her write this one.

“The British prude in me was nearly banished when I had to whisper sweet nothings for this track,” Ware said to Complex when explaining how …

Hear Three New Ryan Adams Songs

Earlier this year, country rock demi-god Ryan Adams put out his first self-titled, a great look at his timeless vocals and lyrics, as well as 1984, his 10-song punk record released on a 7-inch. Today we get to hear three songs that are also a part of that PAX-AM 7-inch singles series: “Jacksonville,” “I Keep Running,” and “Walkedypants.”

The 7-inch A-side highlights “Jacksonville,” whereas the B-side features the rustic “I Keep Running” and somewhat decent “Walkedypants.” The songs take a nice stroll through his country, blues, and folk roots and tally up to be ten minutes long in …

Meatbodies

Meatbodies (feat. Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin Member) Share New Track “Disorder”

Chad Ubovich has plenty of experience playing guitar and bass behind both psych rock gods Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin. Between tours with them, he spent his time recording his own crunchy fuzz as Chad and the Meatbodies. Now he’s shortened the name, written up 12 tracks, and teamed up with Cory Hanson of Wand and Erik Jimenez of Together Pangea to create a heavy debut, their self-titled album out October 14 via In The Red.

“Disorder” sees the Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin members doing what they do best: thrashing. Every power chord riff goes hand-in-hand with crazy …

purge

Purge Announce ‘Sewage’ 7-inch Pre-orders

Pittsburgh-based band Purge just announced pre-orders for their brand new 7-inch, Sewage, which is being released by Harm Reduction Records, an imprint label of Deathwish Inc.

For those unfamiliar with the band, Purge is the kind of band that crawls inside of your skull, plays around with your brain, then comes out your ears, leaving you feeling more angry than you already were. In short, they’re heavy and pissed, and are a necessary listen if you are a fan of bands like Nails.

If you like what you hear, make sure you pick up Purge’s new 7-inch on Deathwish …
