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.

SHOW ME THE BODY - "WW4"

Show Me The Body have never been a band you can pin down to one or even three genres of music, and the latest taste of upcoming album Trouble The Water makes that very clear. Over some folky guitar and banjo, Julian Cashwan Pratt blurs the line between rapping and post-punk talk-singing, and just when you least expect it, it explodes into a climactic rock song.

HAYDEN - "EAST COAST"

Canadian indie-folk vet Hayden is back with his first new music in seven years, a lovely, spare and atmospheric ballad. "I was inspired to write this song after covering a Leonard Cohen song called ‘Avalanche’ for the promotion of the film Death Of A Ladies Man," says Hayden. "I switched the finger-picking guitar to a rolling piano part and liked the feel so much, I just kept playing until this chord progression appeared. The words came later after an autumn visit to Newfoundland."

TKAY MAIDZA - "HIGH BEAMS" (JPEGMAFIA REMIX)

QUEEN - "FACE IT ALONE"

Queen have shared a previously unreleased song with vocals by the late Freddie Mercury, "Face it Alone." The song dates from the sessions for their 1989 album, The Miracle, and is a dramatic ballad that is mostly guitarist Brian May and Mercury. “We’d kind of forgotten about this track,” says Roger Taylor, “but there it was, this little gem. It’s wonderful, a real discovery. It’s a very passionate piece.”

--

BLEACHED - "FLIP IT"

Sisters Jennifer & Jessie Clavin are back with their first new Bleached single since the pandemic. "Flip It" is a super-catchy, big riff poppy rocker about turning lemons into lemonade. “I heard this quote on Euphoria," Jennifer says, "‘Every day you get out of bed is an act of courage.' I really related that to the lyrics. During the time of writing this song, I felt like I had to find my inner warrior to make it through another day in LA.”
