So many artists, 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. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

VENOMOUS CONCEPT - "LEMONADE"

Venomous Concept -- the hardcore band who share members with Napalm Death and Brutal Truth -- will follow 2016's Kick Me Silly - VC III with Politics Versus The Erection on August 28 via Season of Mist. First single "Lemonade" is a total ripper.

JYOTI (GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW) - "ORGONE"

Georgia Anne Muldrow has released another song off her upcoming album as Jyoti, Mama, You Can Bet! (due 8/28 via eOne), and it's a soaring dose of jazz-soul.

BURT BACHARACH AND DANIEL TASHIAN - "BELLS OF ST. AUGUSTINE"

Pop legend Burt Bacharach has teamed with Grammy-winning Kacey Musgraves collaborator Daniel Tashian for a new EP titled Blue Umbrella that'll be out July 31 on Big Yellow Dog Music. It's the first record from Bacharach, who turned 92 in May, in 15 years. “Daniel���s instincts are always right on target,” says Bacharach. “Musically, he’s got the chord before I’ve got the chord, when I can't find the chord. I appreciate it so much. He hears impeccably. He brings to the table a great lyric sense. He tells a great story. He also brings some valuable music stuff. It's a really collaborative thing.” Daniel says, meanwhile, “They say you shouldn't meet your heroes because they'll disappoint you. But I haven't found that about Burt.” First single "Bells of St. Augustine" sounds like a classic.

RYAN MURPHY (HOOTON TENNIS CLUB) - "HANG ON DANCER"

Ryan Murphy, who plays in UK bands Hooton Tennis Club and Seat Belts, has released this solo single that's pretty different than anything he's done before. "Hang on Dancer" is dreamy and orchestral with a little dub atmosphere. Cool stuff.

--

CRACK CLOUD - "TUNNEL VISION"

Vancouver art-punk collective Crack Cloud are back with another early taste of new album Pain Olympics which is out July 17 via Meat Machine. "Tunnel Vision" is a dystopic post-punk ripper.

--

NAKED ROOMMATE - "MAD LOVE"

Amber Sermeño and Andy Jordan, who also play in San Francisco band The World, began making music together as Naked Roommate, and have now turned the side project into a proper band. Inspired by post-punk dance acts like ESG and Delta 5, Naked Roommate will release their debut album, Do The Duvet, on September 4 via Trouble in Mind / Upset the Rhythm and first single "Mad Love" is a very promising first taste.

--

INCANTATION - "PROPITATION"

NJ death metal legends Incantation are releasing their first album in three years, Sect of Vile Divinities, on August 21 via Relapse. The first single is the venomous "Propitiation."

--

DON'T SLEEP (DAVE SMALLEY) - "REFINE ME"

Don't Sleep is one of the many bands of melodic hardcore veteran Dave Smalley (Dag Nasty, ALL, Down By Law, etc), and they just announced their new album, Turn The Tide, due September 4 via Victory Records founder Tony Brummel's new label Mission Two Entertainment. The album includes co-production by Walter Schreifels (alongside Carson Slovak, Grant McFarland, and Matt Holmes), and engineering by Brian McTernan. "Refine Me" is a melodic punk ripper, exactly the kind of song Smalley has excelled at for decades.

BE WELL - "CONFESSIONAL"

Speaking of Brian McTernan, his new band Be Well (which also features members of Fairweather, Darkest Hour, and Bane/Converge) announced their debut album and shared this great new single. Read more about it here.

EJ MARAIS - "GLAMOUR PROFESSIONAL" (FT DELOREAN'S EKHI LOPETEGUI)

Barcelona artists EJ Marais will release debut album Cuts later this year and has just dropped the LP's laid back opening cut which was produced by Delorean's Ekhi Lopetegui. "It started out with a loop of chords that I had on my computer and then we got Jordi to play them live on a Hohner Pianet that was lent to us by Hidrogenesse. It sounded great! On the chorus Ekhi added a human voice choir that came from a Ensoniq SQ-1, there is really nothing like that sound, we have tried to imitate it many times for the live show and we never get the exact same tone. It says things about the passing of time and how things become old and decrepit, but also, about nature’s capacity to regenerate."

--

CRICKETS - "ELASTIC"

CRICKETS, the newish band from JD Samson (Le Tigre) Roddy Bottum (Faith No More) Michael O'Neil (Men), will release their self-titled debut album on July 17. They've just released a new single from it. “The simplicity and the bare bones with which we afforded ourselves in the process of writing and recording were key to the overall project,” Bottum says. “We went out of our way to limit ourselves to the bare necessities of tools and voices, and then stripped it down even further to achieve a barren and isolated effect. The music is addressing a need in the three of us to simplify and creatively explore the option of making music without the excess of presence of a masculine toxicity in expression and in the studio.” "Elastic" is a banger.

BEN FOLDS - "2020"

How's your year going?

THE CHICKS (FKA DIXIE CHICKS) - "MARCH MARCH"

Dixie Chicks announced today that they were dropping the "Dixie" from their name and would be henceforth known as The Chicks. With this comes new single "March March," which is on their upcoming album Gaslighter (out 7/16). Its video includes footage of protests and lists George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and many many more Black people who have been killed by police, in big type, through the last minute or so of the video, and puts links to a number of charities at the end. They write “Use your VOICE. Use your VOTE."

GIRL FRIDAY - "This Is Not the Indie Rock I Signed Up For"

LA band Girl Friday will release their debut album, Androgynous Mary, on August 21 via Hardly Art. The new single from the record is "This Is Not the Indie Rock I Signed Up For," which is a darker song than the title might make you think.

--
