So many artists, so many songs, 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. 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.

GORILLAZ - "BABY QUEEN"

Gorillaz have shared this track that's both on their new album Cracker Island as well as featuring on the FIFA 23 soundtrack. "Baby Queen" is another arm-sway-er from Melancholy Hill.

TEEN DAZE - "MODERN COMPROMISE"

"After making Interior, which was an attempt to try and tap into a sound that had a big influence on my early experiences with electronic music, I wanted to try and look ahead," says Teen Daze of this new single. "I find it can be easy to rest on sounds and feels that I’ve worked with in the past, but with this one I wanted to challenge myself to go in a different direction. It's hard to fully re-invent yourself, and you can still hear me in this one, but I don’t think there’s any song in my catalog that really feels like this one."

MAMALARKY - "FROG 2"

"I don’t know if I’ve better synthesized the way I feel with words than in this song," says Mamalarky singer/guitarist Livvy Bennett. "I think I successfully collaged what I feel every day. I was going through a majorly introverted time in my life, but I was feeling hopeful and grounded in that. I was feeling less and less alone in my own little musical world." Mamalarky's new album, Pocket Fantasy, is out this week.

MADAME GANDHI - "SET ME FREE"

“‘Set Me Free’ is about moving into personal freedom from a place of love, wisdom and awareness," says Madame Gandhi of her new genre-blending track. "I wanted to write a tune that makes my audience wanna dance around their house in their underwear, motivated by past relationships, situations, jobs or arrangements that no longer work for them! This song is about joyfully calling in and manifesting the life we do want, the love we do want, the people we want, and recognizing that this shift starts within. I make music with the intention of wanting to inspire change, joy, growth, evolution and happiness. It is a message that I think anyone listening can connect with." This song is from Madame Gandhi's upcoming short-form album Vibrations that's out later this year via Sony Masterworks.

TEARING UP - "RUNNING"

There are strong '90s alt-rock vibes on this new single from Tearing Up (Graham Caldwell of Billy Moon.) "Growing up, I loved punk bands that sneered in the face of authority, demanding their voice be heard," Graham says. "They made me feel like I was stronger than I was. I was the kind of person who avoided conflict since I’d lose every fight I’d end up in, but there’s still a part of me that itches to get its hands dirty, hence the name: Tearing Up."

R&B singer DRAM (who was originally called DRAM and then called Shelley FKA DRAM but is now just DRAM again) has announced a new album, What Had Happened Was, due October 27 via his own Waver Records, and lead single "Let Me See Your Phone" is a swooning dose of '90s-style R&B/neo-soul.

--

--

OTHER HALF - "LIKE A DOG" & "SLAB THICK"

UK band Other Half make the kind of caustic, angular post-hardcore that you could picture coming out on Dischord or Touch & Go in the '90s, and they make it sound pretty damn great in 2022 too. Their new LP Soft Action arrives December 2 via Big Scary Monsters, and two ragers are out now.
