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.

MAVI - "DOVES"

Experimental rapper MAVI has shared the second taste of his anticipated new album Laughing So Hard It Hurts, and this one finds him taking on a subdued, melodic delivery over a warm, jazzy backdrop.

SMINO - "90 PROOF" (ft. J. COLE)

Smino has announced a new album, Luv 4 Rent, which is "coming soon," and it'll include this new single, which features J. Cole and was produced by Groove and Monte Booke. It finds Smino channelling classic funk and soul; if not for Cole's verse, it would hardly count as a rap song at all.

NYC punks Choked Up have just released their new album Mala Lengua on Don Giovanni, along with a video for opening track "Tragic Bullshit." It's a ripper that sounds like it could've come out on Lookout! Records in the '90s, and it sounds fresh today too.

--

MEET ME @ THE ALTAR - "SAY IT (TO MY FACE)"

Fast-rising pop punks Meet Me @ the Altar have confirmed that their debut album will arrive in 2023 via Fueled by Ramen, and lead single "Say It (To My Face)" sounds like it could've been a pop-rock hit tearing up the charts in 2003.

FIRST AID KIT - "TURNING ONTO YOU"

First Aid Kit's new album Palomino is out in November, and the latest sing is "Turning Onto You." "A sweet love song," they say. "When recording this we wanted to achieve that old school ‘country soul’ sound. It was truly a team effort with an amazing brass section by Goran Kajfês and Per Johansson, a laid-back groove by Moussa Fadera, and killer George Harrison-slide guitar by Daniel Bengtson. Hope you like this one."

TRUST FUND - "CAPITAL"
