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.

WAVVES - "HIDEAWAY"

Wavves have shared the third single (and title track) off their upcoming album Hideaway, and it's a catchy, breezy song that finds the middle ground between their love of '90s pop punk and a cleaner, more jangly side.

YOUR OLD DROOG X MF DOOM - "DROPOUT BOOGIE"

"This the first song I ever recorded with DOOM," Your Old Droog says of "Dropout Boogie" (not his first collab with the late rapper) which is now seeing the light of day. "I remember getting the verse back and realizing that I had come full circle. That same night I drove to by my old community college where I used to listen to DOOM heavy back in ’07-’08 and I was in a semi-catatonic state playing that verse back over and over. This man’s work renewed my interest in hip-hop and rhyming at a time when I got tired of hearing what was on the radio or what was considered popular rap, I deadass started listening to classical music, and then I heard DOOM." "Dropout Boogie” was produced by Edan and is terrific (how did this sit on the shelf?) and will be out as a 7" in October.

HIATUS KAIYOTE - "CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD"

The third single off Hiatus Kaiyote's upcoming Brainfeeder debut, Mood Valiant, is a funky track dealing with the bizarre mating rituals of leopard slugs and seahorses. "After we did 'Choose Your Weapon,' we had to make radio edits of our songs, and all of our shit is like 6 or 7 minutes long!," Nai Palm says. "So ‘Chivalry’ was me fucking with the ‘hit record’ formula. I’m gonna write a song that's 3:40 long, and it’s about sex, but I’m gonna make it fucking weird. Examples from the natural world that are fucking with the status quo."
