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.

DROPKICK MURPHYS - "CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME)" & "I WISH YOU WERE HERE"

Not only did The Offspring just cover "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," but now Celtic punk vets Dropkick Murphys did too. They also released a new original song, and both of these recordings lean more on their traditional/folk side.

JOAN OF ARC - "FEEDBACK 3/4"

Joan of Arc's final album Tim Melina Theo Bobby comes out this Friday, and here's one more single, a dose of kinetic art pop written and sung by Melina Ausikaitis. "‘Feedback 3/4' is named for the sounds made by my fake guitar during the song's most poignant moments,” she says. “Last night I sat around the fire with my sister Simaya, who lives in Evanston, IL, just a few miles from the homes and schools where many classic John Hughes' teenage comedies were filmed. This song is about savored and stored happy endings and their contribution to my dissatisfaction with real life.”

GENTLE DOM (ANDREW OF MGMT) - FANTA SE EP

"The Fanta Se EP is a group of experiments in what I like to call ADM (asinine dance music), developed quickly and initially with limited resources in New Mexico during the Covid 19 lockdown of spring 2020," says MGMT's Andrew Vanwyngarden of this new EP made under the name Gentle Dom. "My asinine escapist fantasy while in the wilds of New Mexico, you see, was to be back on the dance floor in New York, closing my eyes and going as deep into the music as possible. I still don’t know when that might happen again. But maybe I’m being hard on my self, it’s not all foolin around. There’s some soul there if you look closely, I hope. With the help of a couple friends."

We already heard Anjimile's take on "Waverly,", and now Briston Maroney's version of "Is There Something In The Movies?" is out too. "This song is the most representative of Samia’s ability to tell a very specific story in a relatable way," Brixton says.
