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…

YOUNG JESUS - "(UN)KNOWING"

Young Jesus have released the second single off their upcoming album Welcome to Conceptual Beach (due 8/14 via Saddle Creek). It starts out folky and bare-bones but turns into something much more intense.

SHIRLEY COLLINS - "BARBARA ALLEN"

Legendary British folk singer Shirley Collins releases her new album Heart's Ease on Friday and here's one last early taste, a spare rendition of traditional Scottish folk ballad "Barbra Allen." “I watched the 1951 black and white film Scrooge and found myself in tears at the scene towards the end of the film where a changed and contrite Scrooge visits his nephew Fred on Boxing Day to beg forgiveness for his past behavior," says Shirley. "Fred welcomes him in, and as Scrooge enters the room, Fred’s wife is sitting at the keyboard singing Barbara Allen to the tune I learned at school...It was utterly simple, utterly lovely. I knew if I ever recorded the song again, I would use that one”

ALAN BRAUFMAN - "HOME"

"When I found out that my 1975 album, Valley of Search, was getting reissued in 2018, I felt a wave of inspiration," says jazz great Alan Brafman of his new album, The Fire Still Burns, and this track being shared today. "In preparing for the first live performance of Valley of Search in decades at both WNYC's Greene Space and Brooklyn's National Sawdust, I realized that, of course, I would need some new music to play as well. I sat down at the piano to noodle around a bit and 20 minutes later, I'd written 'Home.' I gave it this name because, I was coming back home - to New York City - to play music. The other tunes on the album also seemed equally inspired. I've always thought of writing music was more like finding music. The music on this album was easy to find."

UNIFORM - "DISPATCHES FROM THE GUTTER"

If you think Uniform's pummelling industrial ripper "Dispatches from the Gutter" is incendiary, the video is even moreso. Says director Jacqueline Castel: “The video was approached as a documented mass sigil informed by the historical and philosophical concept of self-immolation, performed under the lunar eclipse of Independence Day. Participants were asked to bring personal offerings to burn, and were given a directive to write down their intentions for the future, which were attached with accelerants to an effigy that was later cremated. It was a symbolic act of releasing what we wish to abandon, and an invocation of what we wish to rebuild.” Uniform's new album, Shame, is out September 11.

HOOPS - "GLAD YOU STAYED"

GIRL FRIDAY - "PUBLIC BODIES"

LA's Girl Friday release their debut album next month and here's another sneak peak. The band say "Public Bodies" reflects an "unquenching will to survive." They add The correlation between caring for our plants and caring for our body/soul is close. We water them, change their soil, put on Plantasia for them, and give them a little nutrients. But sometimes we water them too much. Or we ignore them for weeks. Sometimes we become the thing that destroys us. We are made aware of all the ways in which we are the one causing our own roots to spoil, that we are our own oppressor. We’re made aware that the thing we are supposed to trust deeply has betrayed us."
