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 publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

SAWEETIE - "TAP IN"

Saweetie is gearing up to release her new project Pretty B*itch Music (which has production by Timbaland and Danja) this summer), and it'll feature this new song, which was inspired by Too $hort's "Blow the Whistle" and puts a fresh spin on that song's classic West Coast bounce.

SOCCER MOMMY - "INDIE ROKKERS" (MGMT COVER) & "CIRCLE THE DRAIN" (GENTLE DOM - ANDREW VANWYNGARDEN OF MGMT REMIX)

Soccer Mommy's three releases into her singles series; the first two editions featured Jay Som and beabadoobee, and this one focuses on MGMT. Sophie Allison covered "Indie Rokkers" off their 2005 EP Time to Pretend, and Gentle Dom, aka MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden, covered "Circle the Drain" off Soccer Mommy's 2020 album color theory. "I love MGMT so it was hard to pick a song to cover," Sophie says. "They have so many great ones. I ended up choosing 'Indie Rokkers' because I thought it would fit my voice and my style the best. I also just thought it’d be cool to do a deep cut since a lot of people have already covered some of the bigger MGMT songs."

FILTER - "THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS"

Filter were supposed to release a new album with their original lineup, but then PledgeMusic (where they were funding the album) shut down. Supposedly the band now has a new album called Murica coming, which may or may not include this song, which comes from the sessions of Richard Patrick and Brian Liesegang's scrapped reunion album. Richard says, "America is spinning out of control. It's never been more sick, unemployed and especially divided. I love my country so much that I'm willing to part with some fans that might not like my message to her."

Los Angeles pop duo Magdalena Bay released a new EP, A Little Rhythm and a Wicked Feeling, back in March, and now they've shared a new remix of one of its tracks, "Story," from Gus of Kero Kero Bonito. It's a little tropical, a little chiptune, and very groovy.

SONGHOY BLUES - "WORRY"

“The harshness of life still weighs on our societies and sinks many young people into a dead end,” says Songhoy Blues of this jubilant but tough new single. “’Worry’ is a positive energy that Songhoy Blues want to be a ray of hope for humanity. ‘Worry’ is about not stopping fighting because at the very end you will find the light.”

--

ART FEYNMAN - "I CAN DREAM"

TIÑA - "ROSALINA"

UK group Tiña will release Positive Mental Health Music on November 6 via Speedy Wunderground. This will be the first full-length album the label -- run by Dan Carey, Alexis Smith and Pierre Hall -- has released. The first single is the dark, brooding "Rosalina." "We ended up playing a virtual gig and shooting this video on the same night during lockdown – a couple of days after me breaking my collarbone," frontman Joshua Loftin says. "I think breaking it slowed me down a bit and helped me to tune into myself.”

Fiery Furnaces just released their first new single in 10 years, a typically wordy concoction that dreams of better times. "Down at the so and so on somewhere / Cross town from where we were some other time. / Don't you remember? We were happy there. / Can you remember it?"

--

DOVES - "CAROUSELS"

Manchester band Doves are back in action and have just released their first new single in 11 years. "Carousels" is instantly recognizable as a Doves song: anthemic, soulful, just a little funky, spiralling out from a sample of the late, great Tony Allen.

5 BILLION IN DIAMONDS (BUTCH VIG / EBBOT LUNDBERG OF TSOOL) - "DIVINE ACCIDENTS"

Here's the first single from their second album -- a chiming, soaring rock song that is not too far from the music Ebbot made with TSOOL that also features The Ocean Blue's David Schelzel (who also appeared on the band's first album).
