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, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. 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…

BROCKHAMPTON - "M.O.B." & "TWISTED"

THE RESIDENTS - "DIE! DIE! DIE!" (FT FRANK BLACK)

The Residents will release new album Metal, Meat & Bone on July 10. The double album was inspired by newly unearthed recordings of former collaborator and blues musician Alvin Snow (a.k.a. Dyin' Dog). The record features those records, as well as 10 interpretations of the demos by The Residents, and six new works inspired by Dyin' Dog. The first single is "Die! Die! Die!" which features lead vocals from Pixies' frontman Black Francis. The Residents told Rolling Stone that though they don't know who Dyin' Dog was singing about in the original, they definitely had someone in mind with their new version -- "A perfect parallel with its all too eager protagonist snidely and indifferently turning his back on a world whose approval he so desperately sought." You can make your guesses on who they might be talking about and check out the video below.

GIRLS RITUALS - CRAP SHIT (LP STREAM)

Canadian experimental duo Black Dresses released a new album, Peaceful as Hell, a month ago, and now half of the duo, Devi McCallion, released a new LP from her project Girls Rituals. "5 years ago I wrote a desperate, pleading album trying to prove myself as 'a real artist'," she writes. "Wishing to have a real home, wishing for safety and healing between suffering peoples, about understanding kind love between women. That album was called Reddishness and you can find it here. Now on my 29th birthday I am bringing to you the sequel to Reddishness. A mutated, DNA-liquefying sequel. An album trying to prove that I'm not a real artist, abandoning a sense routine, terrified psychotic paranoid misunderstanding and manic repulsive lust. lol. I'm not trying to be cynical but I always have written these songs from where my experience and feelings come from. My feelings in the world has changed in many complicated and unexpected ways. But it's not all bad... Not all ALL bad...In many ways, I got lucky. I don't know. These songs existed and I had to purge them. It makes sense to purge them all together here as 'Crap shit.'"

NO AGE - "HEAD SPORT FULL FACE"

LA art-punk duo No Age release new album Goons Be Gone on June 5 and have just shared this poppy new single and video. "Dean and I have known Aaron Rose for years, we played the wedding procession at his wedding," says Randy Randall of the video. "A few weeks into the Covid 19 quarantine we got email out of the blue from Aaron. He said he was going through old hard drives and he found a folder labeled 'No Age.' He opened it and found all this footage from 10 years ago. Maybe he was thinking of making a video for us but never did? He sent us a a link to a whole bunch of footage and he had shot on a small hand held digital video camera. I edited it together for the video. After a few round of notes from Dean and Aaron this is the video."

NAGA SIREN - "HEAL"

Oslo's Naga Siren already had a reputation for hard-hitting melodic post-hardcore, but on their new single "Heal," they sound more gigantic than ever. It was produced by Blood Command member Yngve Andersen, and like that band, it manages to sound stadium-ready while still sounding genuinely aggressive.

BEDSORE - "THE GATE, CLOSURE (SARCOPTES OBITUS)"

Rome death metallers Bedsore will follow their 2018 demo with their debut album Hypnagogic Hallucinations on July 24 via 20 Buck Spin, and lead single "The Gate, Closure (Sarcoptes Obitus)" is a promising first taste.

DOWN AGAIN - "ACTIONS AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES"

California's Down Again make crushing, in-your-face post-hardcore that doesn't shy away from good hooks -- they kinda sound like early 2000s Thrice. They're releasing their debut album The Devil is a Gentlemen this year, and this new single combines cathartic music with some pretty heavy lyrical matter. "The lyrics deal with some of my family relationships falling apart," vocalist Lenny Costa told No Echo. "I watched them walk away from their faith and struggle with homelessness and substance abuse. It was one of the more difficult songs to write because it hit so close to home."

SWEET SOUL - "AT ODDS" & "COME ON" (CHUCK BERRY COVER)

California power pop-infused punks Sweet Soul recently released "Noises Drown" off their forthcoming debut album, and today that song came out on a three-song cassingle with "At Odds" (also from the upcoming album) and a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On." Like "Noises Drown," "At Odds" is super catchy, driving stuff, and the Chuck Berry cover is pretty rad too.

LAVENDER DIAMOND - "LOOK THROUGH THE WINDOW"

"This song resounded in my heart and mind for months - it was all I wanted to sing," says Lavender Diamond's Becky Stark of her band's first new song in eight years. "It felt so mysterious - a song about such deep isolation, separation and rebirth. When the quarantine began it suddenly seemed that this song had come to speak to this moment of trial and transformation - and contained within it a prayer for the healing of our world."
