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.

FRISCO - "RED CARD" (ft. SKEPTA, JAMMER, JME, SHORTY)

Five members of the veteran grime collective Boy Better Know have come together for this new posse cut that finds all five in fine form over some ominous production. It's off Fresco's upcoming album The Familiar Stranger, due October 16 via BKK.

--

HUNDREDTH - "BOTTLE IT UP"

Former post-hardcore band Hundredth had recently begun going in an atmospheric post-rock/shoegazy direction, and now they're going full synthpop on their new single "Bottle It Up," the first single off their upcoming album Somewhere Nowhere, due October 9 via self-release. It's synthpop, but it's not an attempt at radio play or anything. It's a song that still very much has an underground mindset - it reminds me a little of Mew.

HEATHER TROST - "LOVE IT GROWS"

Singer, songwriter and composer Heather Trost, one half of A Hawk and a Hacksaw, announced a new solo album, Petrichor, due out November 6 via Third Man Records. The first single, "Love It Grows," swirls with layers of fuzzy atmosphere.

RADICAL FACE - "SUNLIGHT" & "THE MISSING ROAD"

Indie pop vet Radical Face (Ben Cooper) is working on a new album, but in the meantime, he's also been putting out some non-album singles.

--

ELZHI - "JASON"

Former Slum Village member Elzhi is releasing new album Seven Times Down Eight Times Up on September 25 via Glow365, and lead single/closing track "Jason" is hard-hitting, head-nod-inducing rap that sounds like classic 2000s era Elzhi.

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF - "DRIVING LIKE MANIACS"

UK modern prog band The Pineapple Thief, which currently includes Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) on drums, release their new album Versions of the Truth this week and here's one more early taste before the whole thing drops. It's a moody track, with a melancholy video made by George Laycock. “The song is about estrangement, but George managed to find his own take on it," says frontman Bruce Soord. "About a father forced to abandon his child in order to save him, to care for him in absentia. Ultimately at least, there is light at the end of the dark tunnel.”

PLANTS AND ANIMALS - "LE QUEENS"

Montreal band Plants & Animals return with new album The Jungle on October 23 via Secret City Records and have shared this sultry new single and video. “Woody got this machine that makes a drum kit play samples and he didn’t know how to use it," say the band. "But he chopped up some of Warren’s guitar chords and played them with his bass drum anyway. So it all ended up as this wobbly, dreamy jam that we all got attached to. Nic wrote most of the lyrics in the lineup at Home Depot. They’re about an evening in Queens, dancing among strangers, time moving backwards in slow motion and falling in love."

DLINA VOLNY - "WHATEVER HAPPENS NEXT"

Minsk, Belarus post-punk / new-wave trio Dlina Volny dedicate their new, Johnny Jewel-produced single on Italians Do It Better, "Whatever Happens Next," to protestors in Belarus.
