So many artists, so many songs, 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. 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.

Madrid screamo band Altair are releasing their new album Siempré habrá luces en otro luga on May 25, and you can get a taste of its caustic yet beautiful sound from new single "Tres Cruces."

Of how unreal is to socialize like that, useless situations."

JOY OLADOKUN - "PURPLE HAZE"

"Purple Haze" is not a Jimi Hendrix cover, but a gentle dose of Americana inspired by the LA wildfires, as Joy Oladokun explains: "I wrote ‘Purple Haze’ while I was in LA after some wildfires, and I noticed the sky was not the color that it should be. It made me think about the world we live in and all the information we get on a daily basis. It almost feels like we might be on our way out as a species but there are wonderful things like family, friends, partners, dogs - things that inspire us towards beauty and excitement. Even if this all ends, it was worth the experience."

DANIEL VILLARREAL (DOS SANTOS) - "PATRIA"
