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.

THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES - "THE KILLING OF GEORGIE (PT. III)"

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have shared the third single off their upcoming Tim Armstrong-co-produced album When God Was Great (due 5/7 via Hellcat), and as you'll probably guess from the title, this one tackles the violent acts of police brutality that plagued 2020.

COLONIAL WOUND - "I"

Colonial Wound's (mem Yashira) new EP Degradation drops April 16 via New Morality Zine, and lead single "I" is a killer dose of noisy, metallic post-hardcore.

--

TRADE WIND - "DIE! DIE! DIE!"

Trade Wind share members with hardcore bands Stick To Your Guns and Stray From The Path, but they make atmospheric indie rock, and their new song "Die! Die! Die!" is some of their most somber music yet. It's closer to vocalist Jesse Barnett's Bon Iver-esque solo project Wish You Were Here than to the last Trade Wind album, and Jesse remains just as good at this kind of tender music as he is at hardcore. Trade Wind's third album, The Day We Got What We Deserved, arrives May 21 via Other People Records.

SOUR WIDOWS - "BATHROOM STALL"

Bay Area trio Sour Widows have shared another song off their upcoming Crossing Over EP, and while the recently released title track recalled '90s slowcore, this new one is closer to '70s Laurel Canyon folk. "This song is about a relationship I had with someone who struggled with addiction, who very tragically passed away three years ago while we were together," singer Maia Sinaiko told FLOOD. "It’s about some moments we shared, and how it feels to walk around carrying that person and those experiences with me while the world stays normal." Like the previous single, it's truly gorgeous stuff.

LYDIA AINSWORTH - “SPARKLES & DEBRIS”

Canadian singer-songwriter Lydia Ainsworth has shared the title track from her forthcoming fourth solo album, Sparkles & Debris. The song began as an instrumental she worked on with Stranger Things composer Kyle Dixon. "Sparkles & Debris is the good and the bad,” says Ainsworth. “At its most basic level, it's our shared experience of life.” The album's out May 21.

REIGNING SOUND - “OH CHRISTINE”

“'Oh Christine' was written as a folk ballad, but when Graham started playing 4/4 behind me at rehearsal, it took on a whole different feel," says Greg Cartwright of Reigning Sound's new single. "The counterpoint of the electric guitar, the double-time bridge, everything about it just fell right into place. I love it when that happens." Reigning Sound's A Little More Time with Reigning Sound, their first album in seven years, is out May 21 via Merge.

DAMIEN JURADO - "TOM"

Damien Jurado's new album, The Monster Who Hated Pennsylvania, is out May 14 and here's the second single from it. Damien never really swerves outside his lane -- hushed folk -- but he continues to be a master of his craft.

Portugal. The Man have shared another song/video off their "lost" 2008 live-in-studio album/film, Oregon City Sessions. It was recorded at the tail-end of a nearly-500-show-long tour, and it's a very cool document of a very different era of this band.

MOODOÏD FT MELODY'S ECHO CHAMBER - "ONLY ONE MAN"

French artist Moodoïd (Pablo Padovani) is releasing the PrimaDonna EP on April 30 that finds him collaborating with some of his favorite female musicians, including Saâda Bonaire, Say Lou Lou, Felicia Douglass, and Melody's Echo Chamber who played briefly in the band sings on the EP's lead track, "Only One Man." “I wanted to create a dialogue between a man and a woman who are breaking up after a fiery love affair," says Pablo. "The man looks back on the relationship with melancholy, while the woman tells him over again that she still loves him just like how she remembers. This is a happy, optimistic song. It makes me think of the sun and Californian beaches where we spent many a happy moment on tour with Melody.”

SILVER SYNTHETIC - "AROUND THE BEND"

New Orleans garage rock crew Silver Synthetic release their self-titled debut on Friday via Third Man and here's one last sneak peak before they lay the whole thing out in front of us. "Around the Bend" leans more toward jangly '60s pop with a nice jam-out at the end.
