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 INTELLIGENCE - "CELEBRATION RATIO"

Lars Finberg is back as The Intelligence with a brand new warped ripper. "Celebration Ratio" is a blast of burnt brain cells and omnichord radiation.

KELE - "FROM A PLACE OF LOVE"

LAVENDER DIAMOND - "TURN AROUND"

“This song is about reversal - the experience of finding the end - of being in the free fall of loss and despair - and that end point being a beginning through the turning,” says Lavender Diamond's Becky Stark of "Turn Around," a bonus track on the rerelease of their album Now Is The Time. “When we were making the record I didn’t think this song should be part of it, but sometime after we were finished I realized it was my favorite one. It had seemed so raw that I couldn’t bear it. But isn’t that the way? It can feel impossible to see the beauty in what is full of pain - but new joy can be created and found in the turn around.”

IDA MARIA - "DIRTY MONEY"

Norway's Ida Maria is back with her first new music in a while -- the Dirty Money EP which will be out June 25. She's just shared the roaring title track which she says is "about stolen land and Bitcoin. It’s about the oil wars in Nigeria. It´s the mining in Congo, slavery for iPhones. Anything that the greedy human mind turns to to try and fulfill that hole of nothingness, it’s about the Matrix. Get off the grid! Let's do something that doesn't cost money. The best things in life are for free!” If you're going to take Ida's advice of getting off the grid, stream this before you do:

HORSEY - "SEAHORSE" FT KING KRULE
