So many artists, so many songs, 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.

JELEEL! - "RIDE THE WAVE!"

Rhode Island-born rapper/singer JELEEL! has announced his debut album, REAL RAW!, due this spring via 10k projects. Along with the announcement comes new single "RIDE THE WAVE!," which finds him combining his love of rap and pop punk, as he explains: "It shows the feel-good punk/pop energy I love and will be highlighting on this project. The video means the world to me too because I shot it in my homeland of Nigeria and I’m so proud of my heritage. From the moment the beat came together in the studio to when we were shooting in Nigeria, everything just felt so right and I hope fans can feel that in this record."

It's dark though to get lost in another person if it feels drug like. It's confusing to get high from another human."
