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.

BIG FREEDIA - "PLATINUM"

Not only did Big Freedia appear on Rebecca Black's 10th anniversary remix of "Friday" earlier this week, the New Orleans bounce icon also just put out her own new super catchy single, "Platinum."

MOGWAI - "PAT STAINS" FT. COLIN STETSON

If you've always thought Mogwai could use more saxophone, well now you're in luck. Unless you were hoping for that "played on the fire escape" kind of sax, then you're not. Reedmaster Colin Stetson brings his distinct style to this track off the post-rock greats' upcoming As The Love Continues and his skronk really adds to the building maelstrom.

GORDI & ALEX LAHEY - "DINO'S"

Fellow Australian musicians Gordi and Alex Lahley team up for a collaborative track that gets its name from a Nashville bar. "This song has been two and a half years in the making," they say. "We wrote it on a very humid summer’s day in Nashville before breaking for late night pasta and beer. The eccentricity of Dino’s makes it a place where it feels like anything could happen and anyone could walk through the door. The song captures the feeling of being totally captivated by the person sitting across from you while the world spins madly on. Anyone who has been to Dino’s knows that there is genuinely a Dolly Parton cardboard cutout that lives in the bar and she is a Nashville icon."

MEN I TRUST - "TIDES"

Montreal's Men I Trust are back with a new single, a bobbing, blorby R&Bish number called "Tides."

--

DNTEL - "FALL IN LOVE"

Jimmy Tamborello is set to release two new Dntel album this year, both for German label Morr Music. The first of them is The Seas Trees See that will be out March 26. "I thought a lot about making an album that you would find in a thrift store", Tamborello says, "like a mysterious collection of sketches that leaves a lot unanswered. It doesn’t beg for attention or have any big moments." A snippet of spoken word becomes a vocoder love song in Jimmy's hands.

ENFORCED - "CURTAIN FIRE"

Richmond thrashers Enforced have shared another taste of their anticipated new album Kill Grid (Due 3/12 via Century Media), and "Curtain Fire" is another scorcher. It gives you everything you want from punk-informed thrash, and it makes this decades-old genre feel fresh.

--

SKELETON - ORDAINMENT OF DIVINITY EP

Austin blackened punks Skeleton are set to follow their 2020 self-titled debut LP with their sophomore LP in 2021, but first they've put out this brief EP with four new grimy rippers (and an ambient intro). According to the EP description, "while a couple tracks on Ordainment Of Divinity will return in mutated form later, the others remain intended specifically for this release."

--

KALI MASI - "GUILT LIKE A GUN"

Chicago punks Kali Masi have shared another song from their upcoming album [laughs] (due 3/26 via Take This To Heart Records), and this one's a little more of a heartland rock ballad, but still with their usual punk grit.

--

MEET ME @ THE ALTAR - "GARDEN" (ACOUSTIC)

Rising pop punk trio Meet Me @ The Altar signed to Fueled By Ramen last fall, and now they've released an acoustic version of their 2020 single "Garden." The original is the kind of super catchy pop punk that would've fit on FBR in the mid 2000s, and this version is just as cool in its own way.

--

JEREMY IVEY - THE MONOLITH SESSIONS

Folk/alt-country singer Jeremy Ivey follows last year's Waiting Out The Storm with a live EP featuring five songs from that album recorded at Nashville venue The 5 Spot. "The 5 Spot is a special place to me for a lot of reasons," Jeremy says. "It was where I played my first solo show, it’s where Margo [Price] and I honed our live band Buffalo Clover. It feels like home, just like playing with my band does. This is picture of what we sounded like in the fall of 2020."

YOUNG THUG, MEEK MILL & T-SHYNE - "THAT GO!"

LIL TJAY - "CALLING MY PHONE" (ft. 6LACK)

Lil Tjay and 6LACK both make rap-informed R&B, and their styles come together nicely on this new collab.

--

YOUTH CODE x KING YOSEF - "LOOKING DOWN"

Youth Code make harsh, throbbing industrial rock and King Yosef makes aggressive rap that owes a lot to industrial and metal, so it's no surprise that they're a perfect match on this new song.

--

WEATHERSTATE - "HANGAR"

UK punks Weatherstate just signed to Rude Records and their first single for the label is the catchy, grungy "Hangar." If you dig early/mid 2010s era Basement, Citizen, Title Fight, etc, give this a spin.

He cites The Cure's "Friday I'm in Love" as inspiration. "I wanted to make something really different, a very pure love song that has a super straight and simple four-to-the-floor beat and bass line. It's a song about the naivety and pureness of falling in love.”

--

TAPE GIRL - "SHOVELING (MYSELF OUT OF THE SNOW)"

Tape Girl's bedroom pop-infused ska puts a genuinely new spin on the decades-old genre, and each new single she releases is great. The new "Shoveling (Myself Out Of The Snow)" is no exception. As on previous singles, it sounds like there's a little Bomb the Music Industry! influence, but Tape Girl really makes it her own and reminds you that there's still plenty of room for innovation within this genre.
