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. 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.

JAMES KRIVCHENIA (BIG THIEF) - “EMISSARIES OF CREATION”

Big Thief drummer James Krivchenia will release new album Blood Karaoke on April 15 via Reading Group. If you're expecting folk-rock, this is not that. "Emissaries of Creation" mixes techno, metal and more. Very cool, though.

Madonna has teamed with Canadian producer Sickick and Nigerian singer Fireboy DML for a new remix of "Frozen" from 1998's Ray of Light. The new version turns it into a modern downtempo R&B song, and Fireboy DML's newly-added verse gives it an Afro-pop twist.

PRIYA RAGU - "ILLUMINOUS"

UK-based Tamil-Swiss vocalist, songwriter and producer Priya Ragu has a new single, "Illuminous," which she wrote and her brother and collaborator Japhana Gold produced. "I believe we are all beings of light," Priya says. "It’s a journey that starts before we enter this world and continues while we have this human experience, and then remains after we leave this earth. I also believe that we all have this one true unique gift that could bring us back to our true selves. Once you have found that, the light within you shines so bright that you become invincible. This is how I feel at this stage in my life and with this song I want to encourage others to find that one thing. Apart from all that, it’s also a turn up song, so you know what you gotta do!"

MALL GRAB - "METAPHYSICAL"

Australian-born, London-based electronic musician (and Turnstile collaborator) Mall Grab plans to release his debut album this year, and while most details are TBA, he did just release this new single. "This track is a homage to the music of my adopted hometown, London," he said. "I wrote this song in December 2021 just as shows and clubs were coming back and I could finally see all of the people (myself included) losing their shit to music again. Loud, chaotic and euphoric."

MALLRAT - "TEETH"

Following recent single "Your Love," Brisbane, Australia alt-pop artist Mallrat announced her debut album, Butterfly Blue, due out May 13 via Nettwerk. She's also shared a new single, "Teeth." "I like to think that if 'Teeth' was out in 2004, it would be on the OC soundtrack," Mallrat says. "In the song, I describe a big, omnipresent 'it.' When I wrote these lyrics, I was playing with the idea that we talk about sex, prayer, violence, and power with very similar language. I wanted to see if I could blur all of these things into one blurry ball of energy."

ODESZA - "BETTER NOW" (ft. MARO)

DEER SCOUT - "PEACE WITH THE DAMAGE"

Deer Scout's debut LP, Woodpecker, is due out April 8 via Carpark, and the latest single is "Peace With the Damage," a spare, folky track with gorgeous harmonies. "'Peace With The Damage' is a song by my father, Mark Miller, originally recorded by my parents’ band, Spuyten Duyvil," Deer Scout says. "My dad is one of my favorite songwriters and this is a song I always wanted to record even though it’s a little bit of an outlier on the album. It’s a retrospective song about the past and regret. We recorded it together as a duet with me singing both parts, 4 years apart, so it feels like a conversation between a past and present self. My dad played guitar and was generous enough to trust me with it."

CADENCE WEAPON - "ON ME" (LORAINE JAMES REMIX)

“Loraine James is one of my favorite artists,” says Cadence Weapon's Rollie Pemberton of this new remix, “so I was overjoyed when she said she was down to do a remix for me. She's one of the most innovative electronic musicians in the UK. Loraine’s interpretation of ‘On Me’ brings out the warped paranoia of targeted surveillance in a more trippy way than on the original.”

U-ROY FEAT. SHAGGY - "RULE THE NATION" (GROOVE ARMADA REMIX)

Groove Armada have remixed the late U-Roy's collaboration with Shaggy, "Rule the Nation," from last year's posthumous Solid Gold U-Roy. “We wanted to keep Shaggy and U-Roy’s carnival spirit and re-tweak it for that 3am slot near the subwoofer,” say Groove Armada. “Right to the last minute there was loads more stuff going on. But in the end, as always, less was more. Kick, hat, clap, bass, 2 MCs, and some live-to-tape action on the console. To quote Pete Tong, ‘turn it up.’”

Ska duo Holy Schnikes! have just announced a covers compilation, Born Under Power Lines, due March 5 via Ska Punk International Records. The first single is a cover of OMC's 1995 dance-pop single "How Bizarre" with Common Sense Kid on vocals and Bex from Backyard Superheroes on horns and backing vocals. As it turns out, "How Bizarre" works really well as a ska song.
