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.

BRENT FAIYAZ - "GRAVITY" (ft. TYLER, THE CREATOR)

Maryland R&B singer Brent Faiyaz has tapped Tyler, the Creator for a new single produced by Kendrick Lamar/Drake collaborator DJ Dahi. It's a smooth slow jam and Tyler's rapped verse suits it well.

THE HOLD STEADY - "SPICES"

With much of the US under a serious cold snap, The Hold Steady's "Spices" couldn't come at a better time. “‘Spices’ began with the intro riff that guitarist Tad Kubler brought in,” says Craig Finn, “and it unfurled quickly when the band got together. It’s probably one of the heaviest songs on the record, but it achieves some levity with the horn section that arrives at the chorus. Like a number of others on the record, ‘Spices’ speaks of technology – the way texts, social media, DMs, etc. allow acquaintances to pop up into our lives and potentially disappear again just as quickly.” The Hold Steady's new album, Open Door Policy, is out February 19.

DESIRE (JOHNNY JEWEL & MEGAN LOUISE) – “ZEROS”

Desire, the duo of Chromatics' Johnny Jewel and Megan Louise, have shared this low-key house jam. “The cyclical music echoes flashback sequences of a recurring dream, chanting ‘Falling like a feather…Never touch the floor’," say Desire. "We sampled the incessant strikes of a grandfather clock, stopwatches, & digital alarm clocks to keep the time. From sunrise to sunset, every single day is adding up.”

MR. EAZI - "THE DON"

Mr. Eazi continues to emerge as one of Afropop's biggest and best crossover stars, and he'll keep the momentum going with the Something Else EP, due February 19 via Eazi’s own Banku Music and emPawa Africa. The first single is "The Don," which owes as much to the Nigerian artist's homegrown Afrobeats as it does to moody R&B.

ANXIOUS - "BLED WHITE" (ELLIOTT SMITH COVER)

Connecticut emo/hardcore band Anxious recently showed off a more tender side with the jangly "More Than A Letter" off their upcoming acoustic 7", and now they've explored that side once again with a shoegazy emo cover of Elliott Smith's "Bled White." It was originally released on NTS Radio and Brain Dead's Now That's What I Call Brain Dead comp, which also features '90s/'00s covers by Portugal. The Man, Cherry Glazerr, Homeshake, Miya Folick, Mac DeMarco, cursetheknife and more.

THYLA - "BREATHE"

Brighton, UK quartet Thyla shared another cinematic, widescreen pop track, with they say is the first taste of their forthcoming debut album. "'Breathe' was written in the early hours of the morning," frontwoman Millie Duthie says. "Eventually we chanced upon this really vibey atmospheric lick that you hear in the intro, and the whole song grew from there. The song blossomed into a slightly melancholic dream-pop bop, it’s bittersweet and has a slightly inconclusive feeling to it; imagine a film where the main character never actually gets the happy ending you’ve been so long yearning for. The result of how the instrumental sounded no doubt manifested lyrics that held the same sentiment. The song is about loneliness, estrangement from family and close friends, yet despite this, feeling a sense of inner strength about the situation. It’s like recovering from a breakup and realising you’ve come out stronger, but a reflection of the scar tissue that resulted from the trauma."

TO BE GENTLE - 3 SONGS

Eugene, Oregon screamo band To Be Gentle are releasing a new album, I Love You, But I Will Not Forgive You, on March 5 (benefitting RAINN). Jake Beeker says most of the songs were written and recorded yesterday (1/28) and adds, "I wanted to dive in deeper than i ever have before in regards to writing music about my mental health on this album. This album is a declaration of my trauma and how it has shaped me as a person, as well as an emancipation from my trauma consuming every facet of my life." Three of them are streaming now, and they're minimal, ambient instrumentals that manage to be as gripping as the band's screamo material.
