Best New Indie: 6 Songs You Need To Hear This Week

Fresh cuts from Jeff Tweedy, Do Make Say Think, Wavves, and more.

You’re not ready for the long weekend until you’ve loaded up on the latest new indie. This week saw new releases from Jeff Tweedy, Canadian post-rock greats Do Make Say Think, Atlanta garage punks Black Lips, and a glam rock-inspired video from Wavves.

Here are six new indie tracks you need to hear.

Black Lips – “Squatting in Heaven”

“Squatting in Heaven” is the second single from Black Lips’ forthcoming record Satan’s Graffiti Or God’s Art? It sounds at home with the rest of the Atlanta, Georgia, quartet’s catalogue… garage punk greatness.
 

Girlpool – “It Gets More Blue”

Girlpool’s Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad go in on the things we do for love on the Los Angeles duo’s latest, “It Gets More Blue.” Their new record Powerplant arrives on May 12 via Anti-.
 

Wavves – “Million Enemies”

Wavves’ You’re Welcome arrives on May 19 and Nathan Williams and Co. have already unveiled the record’s fourth single. The band released a vide for “Million Enemies” this week and it’s a glammed out nod to 70s TV program Top of the Pops.
 

She Devils – “Hey Boy”

Montreal duo She-Devils use primitive electronic gear, hypnotic vocals, and an “amusement park of sounds” to construct beautiful chaos. The music is inspired by everything from Iggy Pop to Madonna to T-Rex to Can, as well as the romantic longing of ‘60s yé-yé.
 

Do Make Say Think – “Her Eyes On The Horizon”

“Her Eyes On The Horizon” is the second song Do Make Say Think have shared from their forthcoming record Stubborn Persistent Illusions. The Toronto-based quintet’s album arrives on May 19.
 

Jeff Tweedy – “Laminated Cat”

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is set to drop a new solo record titled Together at Last on June 23. It’s a collection of songs from under his Wilco, Loose Fur, and Golden Smog banners, reworked as acoustic tracks. “Laminated Cat” from Loose Fur’s debut LP is the first single.
