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 publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

J BAVLIN, DUA LIPA, BAD BUNNY & TAINY - "UN DÍA"

J Balvin taps frequent collaborators Bad Bunny and Tainy, as well an English-language hook from UK pop star Dua Lipa, for this new jam that sounds as gigantic as you'd hope.

THUNDERCAT - "GRUNE THE DESTROYER" (FROM THUNDERCATS ROAR)

Who better to get to write a song for the new reboot of '80s after-school cartoon series Thundercats than Thundercat? As part of a virtual Comic Con panel on Thursday, Thundercat also let everyone know he'd be voicing a character in ThunderCats Roar, too -- villain Grune The Destroyer. With that he shared the Grune the Destroyer theme song that is groovy in that laid-back '70s way Thundercat's known for, and it comes with a clip of the show.

FLAMING LIPS - "YOU N ME SELLIN’ WEED"

The new Flaming Lips album, American Head, is shaping up to be a pretty mellow ride. To wit: new single "You n Me Sellin’ Weed" is a chilled out tale of a couple who's lives are not ideal. "Wish there was a spaceship comin' for us." Watch the video, which Coyne shot in quarantine:

JESSE DRAXLER, CHELSEA WOLFE & BEN CHISHOLM - "VALERIAN"

070 SHAKE - "GUILTY CONSCIENCE" (TAME IMPALA REMIX)

SECRET MACHINES - "EVERYTHING STARTS"

'00s era Brooklyn indie rock group Secret Machines return with Awake in the Brain Chamber, their first album in 12 years, and this is the second single from the record. “Some place in the back of my mind I guess I was hoping I could write a Fleetwood Mac song," says Brandon Curtis. "But It kept coming out all weird. I read a quote from Wayne Coyne, something like ‘If you are writing a song and you immediately like it, it’s probably no good. But when it sounds weird or if you just don’t know about it, that’s the good stuff.’ Well, for some insane reason that has stuck with me. So I called my brother to see if he could play something that Lindsey Buckingham would play and he came back with what we have here. Sort of saved it from my own worst inclinations, or at least that’s my opinion."

CURREN$Y & HARRY FRAUD - "RIVIERA BEACH" (ft. CONWAY THE MACHINE)

The prolific Curren$y dropped a new Harry Fraud-produced project, The OutRunners, and among the highlights is this song with a few very memorable one-liners by Griselda's Conway the Machine.

MAKAYA MCCRAVEN - "BEAT SCIENCE"

Makaya McCraven has shared a new song off Universal Beings E&F Sides -- his upcoming album of 14 previously unreleased tracks from the sessions for 2018's beloved Universal Beings -- and it's a dose of hypnotic, hip hop-informed jazz.

THE WATERBOYS - "LOW DOWN IN THE BROOM"

Mike Scott returns with new Waterboys album Good Luck Seeker on August 21. “It connects with the early Waterboys sound, that emotionally-driven power” Scott says of the album's new single, “and though it’s an ancient folk song, there’s no folk in the delivery. It’s feral acoustic rock and roll. ”

Portland's Woolen Men are releasing singles every month in 2020 and the latest is "Cool Breeze," which is both jangly pop while taking some unexpected turns.

JOHN K SAMSON (WEAKERTHANS) - "FANTASY BASEMBALL AT THE END OF THE WORLD"

Baseball is back, in empty stadiums with new social distancing rules, which made for a very strange, very 2020 Opening Day on Thursday. Anthony Fauci threw out the first pitch in DC (just barely missed the plate), before the Nationals faced off and lost to the Yankees. Donald Trump announced that he'd be throwing out the first pitch at the Yankees' game on August 15. All of this weirdness -- baseball, 2020, etc -- is felt deeply in "Fantasy Baseball At The End Of The World," a song by Weakerthans frontman John K Samson that he's been playing live for a while but officially released today.
