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 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.

JUAN WAUTERS - "REAL" FT. MAC DEMARCO

Juan Wauters will release new album Real Life Situations on April 30 via Captured Tracks. The record features collaborations with Peter Sagar (Homeshake), Nick Hakim, Cola Boyy, El David Aguilar, Mac DeMarco who guests on "Real." Says Juan, "Mac and I met in 2013 when our label Captured Tracks (we were both on the label then) thought it would be a good idea that we meet and do a song. We met and recorded Beatles songs. The tape machine we were working with broke and the songs were never recovered. After that, we never collaborated in any serious way. When I reached out to Mac about the new project I was doing, he was down since the beginning. I happened to be going to LA so we did it at his studio. Mac provided a really safe place to bounce ideas off of each other. We tried a lot of new things and we ended up with this track so special. The song put an end to that awaited collaboration that was the initial impulse behind us meeting and forming a friendship that stood in time."

MUSH - "HAZMAT SUITS"

UK trio Mush release new album Lines Redacted next week and here's one last new single before the whole album drops. "The concept for Hazmat Suits bizarrely predates the pandemic," explains frontman Dan Hyndman. "It then quickly became relevant and I retroactively rewrote some of the verses. I saw a group of guys in Hazmat Suits going into a building in Leeds town center around March, it was a really strong image that made me pick the tune-up again. It evoked a real modern dystopian vibe."
