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.

LA ARMADA - "DEATH ON REPLAY"

Chicago-via-Dominican Republic punks La Armada are releasing a new album, Anti-Colonial Vol. 2, later this year on their own Mal De Ojo Records in the US, Thousand Islands Records in Canada, and Lockjaw Records in Europe and the UK. The first taste is the melodic hardcore ripper "Death On Replay."

MOON DRENCHED (JOHN DWYER, KYP MALONE, MORE) - "PSYCHIC LIBERATION"

“We can all use a moment of peace and for me that is improvisation,” says John Dwyer of his latests collaborative, improvisational album, Moon Drenched. “Take your mind out of the game for a short while. Life is full of affronts and tests but pure art for art’s sake is where it’s at. Good luck out there, be strong.”

BNNY - "TIME WALK"

Chicago's Bnny, led by Jess Viscius (her twin sister Alexa is in the band, too), have signed to Fire Talk and will release their first album for the label later this year. They've also just released their first single for Fire Talk, a two-minute gem titled "Time Walk" (which can be heard on the finale of the new season of Hulu's Shrill which drops on 5/7). “‘Time Walk’ is about the clarity you find when in motion—walking, driving, running,” says Jess. “It’s about a friendship ending, but still feeling connected to the person. It’s about looking back while moving forward in slow motion. Time walk is a wake-up call.”

CUMBIE - EP
