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.

ARIANA GRANDE - "POSITIONS"

Ariana Grande is maybe probably releasing a new album next week (10/30), and today she put out lead single "Positions." It was co-produced by London on da Track and it comes with a hook that's damn near impossible to deny. In the Dave Meyers-directed video, Ariana is the President of the United States.

RETALIATE - "DISGRACE"

Oxnard hardcore band Retaliate will release their new album IV on December 4 via Indecision Records, featuring guest vocal appearances by Dave Peters (Throwdown), Anthony Herrera (Take Offense) and Dan Weinraub (Downpresser). "Sonically it's a mash up of post-One Voice NYHC and Cleveland hardcore, I guess," frontman Zack Nelson (who used to play guitar in In Control and hosts the 185 Miles South podcast) told No Echo. "The guys make fun of me because before every record we do, I send through the first In Cold Blood LP and say, 'I want to sound like this.' So whatever that sounds like, that's what we're going for but not achieving because no one can. Blaze set the bar too high."

LISS - "LEAVE ME ON THE FLOOR"

Danish band Liss make full-band disco and have just shared this new single that's an ode to the dancefloor.

LOUIS PHILIPPE & THE NIGHT MAIL - "FALL IN A DAYDREAM"

Veteran French singer-songwriter (and indiepop cult legend) Louis Philippe will release Thunderclouds, his new album with The Night Mail, on December 11 via Tapete. New single "Fall in a Daydream" is a typically sweeping pop song for Philippe but the subject matter is very serious -- the 2017 Grenfell Tower disaster. Says The Night Mail's Robert Rotifer, "When Louis Philippe first played this to me I was deceived by the catchy sweetness of the tune. It was only in the studio, when he did the vocals, that the dark implications of the song's lyrics started to dawn on me. Let's not beat around the bush, the 2017 Grenfell Tower disaster, in which at least 70 Londoners died, is testament to the murderous inequality within this still beautiful, amazing city. It felt almost unbearable travelling through West London around that time, the charred remains of the tower shockingly visible from the raised section of the Underground line, while jaded fellow passengers never even paused in their conversation. With hindsight, this song is my soundtrack to that experience. I just love how Philippe's view focuses not on the calamity itself, but on those who casually looked away."

THE MARIAS - "BOP IT UP!"

"‘bop it up!’ is a feeling," says María Zardoya of The Maria's new single. "it’s a feeling of “fuck it.” while we were recording, it just came out of me as I was going through the process of questioning my decisions, my life, my world. “bop it up!” is me trying not to care and to just overcome my insecurities. the red clones in the animation represent my deepest insecurities, the voices in my head. the water represents my emotional insecurities. the snakes represent my reactive insecurities. they all morph together sometimes, transforming into the other before my very eyes."

--

NAPPY NINA - "WEIGHT"

Oakland MC Nappy Nina is the latest to release a single via Mexican Summer's 'Looking Glass' series. Based around a stately jazz piano sample, "Weight" is "about being confident in uncertainty," says Nina. "working on this track was the first time I was in a studio with other musicians in months. It was inspiring to see some of my favorite folks feel free in the space and for them to create things we could pick apart and put back together again to build this song."

--

LOVE TRACTOR - "60 DEGREES & SUNNY"

Athens, GA legends Love Tractor have a new 7" out for this weekend's Record Store Day, produced by REM's Bill Berry and Sugar's David Barbe. "60 Degrees & Sunny" is an instrumental in the distinctive Love Tractor style, jangly and angular all at the same time.
