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.

SWAMPBEAST - "THE BLIND GOD"

Having stirred up buzz with a demo and split with Void Terror, LA death metallers Swampbeast will release their debut album Seven Evils Spawned of Seven Heads on February 12 via Translation Loss. Going by lead single "The Blind God," this album is already shaping up to be killer.

LA FEMME - "COOL COLORADO"

“‘Cool Colorado’ alludes to freedom, the insouciance of a journey,” Parisian band La Femme say of their tripped out, groovy new single. “We were somewhere between the states of Utah and Wyoming, during our last American tour, when this ode to the San Francisco of the 70s, which is so rare and precious to us even if we never lived in this period, came to us.” Look for this song on La Femme's still untitled third album, due out next year.

ANDY SHAUF - "YOU SLIPPED AWAY"

Andy Shauf has shared a new "You Slipped Away" which was recorded during the same sessions as The Neon Skyline. It's a dreamy slow dance, with some lovely woodwinds. “‘You Slipped Away’ was a song that I wrote shortly after moving to Toronto, right after I’d just moved into an apartment and had acquired an 80s Yamaha CP60 stage piano,” says Shauf. “This song was an attempt to write something that sounded like an old standard, using big general metaphors and universal themes.”

BUCK MEEK - "PAREIDOLIA"

Big Thief's Buck Meek will release solo album Two Saviors on January 15 via Keeled Scales. The new single is "Pareidolia," a lanky, dusty song the title of which is a term for finding shapes and patterns in things that weren't intended. “We have all painted forms onto the clouds; a phoenix, a fire truck, snakes, Elvis, and so on,” says Buck. “We saw these visions as children, we encourage children to search for them, and we can't help but continue to project meaning and symbolism onto the sky, to see mountains in moving water, faces in knots in wood, hidden messages in music, and god in toast. Pareidolia is a phenomenon which threads mundane experiences such as staring at the ceiling in the morning with the seeds of mythology and spirituality. The physical world is inherently limited, but our minds take every possible opportunity to transcend."

LESS THAN JAKE - "ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE"

Ska-punk veterans Less Than Jake have shared another super catchy song off their first full-length album in seven years, Silver Linings. "This song is sort of a shout out to the good times when you're actually in the 'silver' parts of your life or a relationship," Roger Lima said. "It's a reminder to stop and smell the flowers when there happen to be some flowers to smell... because good times fly by when you're living them. Cherish those moments and the people in your life that are there for you through thick and thin." For more on this album, read our interview with Roger.

LAVENDER DIAMOND - "IN THE MIDDLE"

"I had a waking vision that I was in a parade of cloud beings, coming in and out of form and falling down to earth for the pure joy of living," Lavender Diamond's Becky Stark says of the latest single off their first album in 8 years, Now Is The Time. "The song tells this story and asks the question - how can we walk in the mystery of being united and divided at the same time? The song asks us to choose the path of love as an act of creative imagination."

HANNAH GEORGAS - "PRAY IT AWAY" FT. MATT BERNINGER
