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.

COLD CAVE - "PSALM 23"

Here's a third track off Cold Cave's upcoming Fate In Seven Lessons. "Psalm 23" is a gothy electro banger that works up quite a head of steam.

COLA BOYY FT. THE AVALANCHES - "DON'T FORGET YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD"

Cola Boyy will release his debut album, Prosthetic Boombox, on June 18th via Record Makers/MGMT Records. The album features appearances from Andrew VanWyngarden from MGMT, John Carroll Kirby, Nicolas Godin of Air, Patrick Wimberly from Chairlift, Corentin “nit” Kerdraon, and on this new single, The Avalanches. "This is one of my favorite jams on the record. I wanted a mix of the Beach Boys, French disco, house keys and a hint of the Cheers soundtrack for good measure! It's a message to everyone: don't get lost in the petty capitalist dream that has us abandon the people & places that shaped us. I wouldn't be who I am today without the masses of Oxnard, and no flashing lights can outweigh that."

LIGHTNING BUG - "SONG OF THE BELL"

Lightning Bug's new album, A Color of the Sky is out in a month and here's another appealing single from it. "Song of the Bell" is a soaring dreampop number that dips toes into '90s shoegaze and early-'00s Broadcast.

FLIGHT MODE - "FOSSIL FUEL"

HALF WAIF - "SODIUM & CIGARETTES"

"'Sodium & Cigarettes' follows the theme of many of the tracks on Mythopoetics and deals with the recognition that no one is going to magically save us or pull us out of our misery," Nandi Rose says of "Sodium & Cigarettes," a gorgeous ballad and the latest single off her new album Mythopoetics. "The chorus 'okay, give it another day' is something I say to myself when I've had a really awful day and everything feels like a wash. It's a deep breath and a stab at courage - I can face tomorrow, and who knows what possibilities for joy and growth that will bring. While working on the album during the Democratic Primary in early 2020, the song took on new meaning for me in light of political conversations. 'I believe in something more than what's in front of me' became a commentary on people saying, 'well, this system is what we've got and you can't ask for more.' I firmly believe that we have to fight for the world we imagine, that everything is possible. So this song is really a quiet encouragement for me, a way to tell myself to stop running, to face what's coming with clarity and vision and courage, to know there's another tomorrow."

DOOMS CHILDREN (mem ALEXISONFIRE) - "FLOWER MOON"

VOTTO - "OGNI PAURA, OGNI CERTEZZA"

Italian screamo band Votto are releasing a new album, Quindi Noi Sbagliando Facemmo Giusto,, on June 25 via We’re Trying Records (in the US), and this new single kinda sounds like early Touche Amore with a bit of a '90s Midwest emo vibe worked in.

--

ZEAL AND ARDOR - "RUN"

One-man metal band Zeal and Ardor goes in kind of a '90s industrial/alt-rock direction on the bone-crushing new song "Run."

--

SQUIRREL FLOWER - "FLAMES AND FLAT TIRES"

"I wrote ‘Flames and Flat Tires’ on my second day of quarantine in Bristol, England, ahead of recording," Squirrel Flower's Ella Williams says of the latest single off her new album Planet (i). "It was late August, hot, I was staying in a place that opened onto a party street, and every night I stayed up listening to the sounds of the revelers and the birds squawking and screaming until 6 a.m., then all day watched people hanging laundry in their backyards through my kitchen window. This was one of those tunes that just falls out.”

--

His latest single features Chrissy Costanza and it's a very poppy one, but still with Lotus' usual punk edge intact.

--

POPPY - "FEAR OF DYING" (JACK OFF JILL COVER)

Speaking of punk-adjacent pop music, Poppy has released a cover of Jack Off Jill's 2000 song "Fear of Dying." She stays pretty faithful to the original, but gives it just a bit of a more modern, poppier edge.

--

--

--

LADYHAWKE - "MIXED EMOTIONS"

Pip Brown is back with Time Flies, her fourth album as Ladyhawke, which will be out October 8 via BMG. New single "Mixed Emotions" is an appealing slice of '80s pop. “'Mixed Emotions' was written with old mates Jono Sloan and Nick Littlemore while I was on a writing trip in LA," Pip says. "Sloan had come up with a really cool bass groove which Nick and I riffed over to get the lyrics and melody. The song is about all the things you can feel with one person, sometimes all in a single day. Up's and downs, confusion, highs and lows. And everything in between!”
