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.

YOUR OLD DROOG - "SO HIGH"

"This is not a weed song," Droog says of his dreamily produced new single, saying instead a thoughtful reflection of "mind-expanding experiences from his past." The single's cover art says otherwise though.

RODDY RICCH - "LATE AT NIGHT"

Compton MC Roddy Rich is back with this new single produced by Mustard. "You got to treat every album like it's the last thing you could ever say, if you get what I'm saying," Roddy told Zane Lowe. "So I treat every song I put out now, everything I put out is as if this is what I got to say, like, this is my peace." The video for "Late at Night" is a real extravaganza, a psychedelic trip involving magical ferris wheels, and a very 1980s fantasy sequence that turns into nightmare.

Chicago indie-punks Sincere Engineer are releasing their sophomore album, Bless My Psyche, in September via Hopeless, and the new track they've shared doesn't appear on it. It's a killer cover of Third Eye Blind's "Losing a Whole Year," from 3EB's self-titled 1997 album.

The Church frontman Steve Kilbey releases new double solo album today, The Hall of Counterfeits, with his band The Winged Heels.

TOM MORELLO & THE BLOODY BEETROOTS - "RADIUM GIRLS" FT. PUSSY RIOT, AIMEE INTERRUPTER, MISH WAY & THE LAST INTERNATIONALE

"Four extraordinary women (Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, The Interrupters’ Aimee Interrupter, White Lung’s Mish Way, The Last Internationle’s Delila Paz) and the ferocious production of The Bloody Beetroots breathe life into the true story of the Radium Girls, young Illinois factory workers who were the victims of one of the most heinous crimes in US industrial history," Tom Morello says. "I spent every summer as a kid near Ottawa, Illinois where these doomed girls used deadly radium laced paint to make glow in the dark watches. They were encouraged to lick the paintbrushes to a point to increase productivity and profit and in the end their bones literally fell apart from cancer and they were so toxic they had to be buried in lead lined coffins. The resulting court cases and publicity led to historic nationwide labor protection legislation. Every year I place flowers at the small monument to these quiet heroes and this song is dedicated to their memory.” It's from his new EP with The Bloody Beetroots, The Catrastrophists, due out June 18.

Tinashe added guest vocals to Buddy's 2020 single "Glitch," and now he's added a verse to her first single of 2021, "Pasadena." "I wrote and recorded the song ‘Pasadena’ in my home in Los Angeles with a bold, bouncing tempo that makes me want to dance," she says. "The song is about growth, family, and the feelings I get when I visit the area I grew up in — energetic and nostalgic, but hopeful.”

Stereogum points out that he told his Bandcamp subscribers recently that he'd be moving his music away from streaming services, saying, "music is supposed to be personal and i’m taking back what’s mine," so you can find this (and all his releases for the foreseeable future) only on Bandcamp.

--

GOST - "A FLEETING WHISPER"

The latest single from Gost's new album Rites of Love and Reverence is a gothy track that he describes as "an homage to not only navigating spirituality but simply being human.

A time in our history which promises ultimate connectivity seems, all too often, to leave many of us feeling increasingly disconnected and alone."
