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.

LA FEMME - “DISCONNEXION”

While they haven't announced full details of their third album, Parisian band La Femme have been dropping singles and videos at a steady clip. The latest is this glammy disco confection that makes room for otherworldly Morricone-esque wordless vocals, and a banjo solo. What?

MADISON MCFERRIN - HINDSIGHT"

Madison McFerrin has contributed a song to Mexican Summer's "Looking Glass" series, and the gorgeous, soulful "Hindsight" is a tribute to a certain politician many of us wish had been running against Donald Trump this year. “Hindsight” is a love letter to Bernie Sanders. I wrote it in May 2020, filled with anxiety from COVID and the coming election feeling let down by the Democratic party, longing for a candidate that believed in climate change, student loan forgiveness and Medicare for All during a global pandemic. It’s a song about heartbreak—wishing you could change the past, knowing you have to continue forward regardless."

Danish death metallers Undergang will release their new album Aldrig i livet on Friday (12/4) via Dark Descent, and they put out second single "Rodt dodt kod" ahead of its release. Frontman David Mikkelsen tells Decibel that it "has the eeriness of reverberating clean guitars, rocking mid-tempo deadliness, gloomy creeping doomy grotesqueries and sudden grinding bits that I feel all makes up all the fun and SICK parts of death metal, just melting into the same song and without getting a 10-minute borefest either." Hear it at Decibel and hear the previous single below.

THE STAVES - "SATISFIED"

“This started out with an acoustic guitar," say The Staves of this new single. "The song asking its subject, ‘Will they ever be satisfied with what they have? Is it ever enough?’ But also urging them not to give up on themselves, and love. The song really came to life when we added the band and gave strength and a backbone to the whole sentiment of the song (as well as a great groove!)."

GET TUFF - "OVER IT"
