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 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.

PINO PALLADINO & BLAKE MILLS - "JUST WRONG"

Pino Palladino has played bass with everyone from The Who and Jeff Beck to Bary Numan and Nine Inch Nails, and is gearing up to release Notes With Attachments, a collaborative jazz album with Blake Mills, on March 12 via New Deal / Impulse! The first single is the chill "Just Wrong" that glides along layers of warm saxophones courtesy Sam Gendel, Marcus Strickland and Jacques Schwartz-Bart. Says Mills: “With a song like this, built in layers, at various points along the road you look around and go: what is this? Where is the composition? Sometimes you end up drawing the blueprints of the house after it’s fully been built.”
