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.

SPITER - "I AM DRACULA"

Philly blackened punks Spiter share members with Devil Master, Disjawn, and Shitfucker, and their debut EP The Draconian Death Curse comes out April 22. Judging by their new music video, they've clearly got a sense of humor, but they also make genuinely badass music that toes the line between punk and black metal.

TŌTH - "GUITARS ARE BETTER THAN SYNTHESIZERS FOR WRITING THROUGH HARD TIMES” FT JENN WASNER

Tōth, the solo project of Rubblebucket's Alex Toth, will release its new album, You and Me and Everything, on April 30 via Northern Spy. He's just shared this charming new single featuring Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak/Flock of Dimes). “This a song is about writing songs," says Alex. "The lyrics are from a diary entry I made for a songwriting magazine pretty much word for word. I turned it into a song as a sort of joke to myself and I guess it kept being funny to me. The music video picks up autobiographically where the song’s story leaves off: Butterfly and Bumble Bee fall in love but Grim Reaper shreds and messes things up and escorts Butterfly back to the cocoon. Moral of the story: Growth is not linear and sometimes you gotta go back to the cocoon."

ANNIE HART (AU REVOIR SIMONE) - "SUN IN THE DARK"

Au Revoir Simone's Annie Hart will release ambient album Everything Pale Blue on May 7 via Orindal Records. Her band's music was always on the gentle side anyway, so this makes perfect sense. Annie began work on the album last November at an artist's residency near Oneonta, New York called Aunt Karen's Farm. She and her family were the only ones there, due to COVID, and she found herself inspired by stillness and nature. Listen to the first released track from the album, the gorgeous, glistening "Sun in the Dark."

DOWNHAUL - "STANDING WATER"

--

SOLSTICE - "IGNITE"

Florida death metal vets Solstice -- still with original guitarist Dennis Muñoz and drummer Alex Marquez -- will release their new album Casting The Die on April 23 via Emanzipation Productions, and new single "Ignite" channels the thrashy, hardcore-informed death metal that this band helped define in the early '90s.
