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.

THE WEATHER STATION - "PARKING LOT"

The Weather Station's anticipated new album, Ignorance, is out Friday via Fat Possum, and ahead of its release she's shared one more single, the incredibly appealing "Parking Lot," which Tamara Lindeman calls "my strange gentle disco song about a humble encounter with a bird and being tired and being in love, and being heartbroken in ways I didn’t quite yet understand​. ​I don’t fully know how everything connects in this song other than it obviously does. I wanted to make the recording very passionate and beautiful while also being very muscular while also being very gentle, and so I did.​"

THE CORAL - "FACELESS ANGEL"

Liverpool's The Coral are back with Coral Island, their first album in three years, which is out April 30. It's a double, featuring 24 now songs. First single is "Faceless Angel" which frontman James Skelly says was by "pre-Beatles" music "around the time of Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers and Joe Meek’s ‘Johnny Remember Me’, that type of thing. We had this groove within that. But the song is about the celebration of mystery. The ‘Faceless Angel’ was sort of meant to be a ride. I got the idea from the Hellblazer [graphic novels]. It’s like a fallen angel and a pulp mystery, based on old comics.” The video, meanwhile, was made by Edwin Burdis who directed Arctic Monkeys' "Four Stars Out Of Five" video.

ROSTAM - "THESE KIDS WE KNEW"

The song was written in a fever-dream state during the second week of March last year while I was recovering from Covid-19," Rostam says of his new single. “I was thinking of three generations while I was writing this song. There’s a generation of adults who don’t see global warming as their problem because they think they won’t be impacted by it. Then there’s a generation younger than mine, who will certainly have to deal with what is happening. In the song I have a fantasy of the younger generation arresting the adults and putting them on trial in the streets of cities around the world. Those are the ‘sidewalk courts’ that I sing about in the song.”

SWAMP DOGG - SORRY YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT DEMOS

Swamp Dogg has a new EP featuring unearthed, previously unheard demos he made from the '70s and '80s. “After I spent a whole day pulling potential songs from Swamp’s endless folders of lyrics, he mentioned that he may have demo versions of some,” says Ryan Olson who produced Swamp Dogg's Sorry You Couldn’t Make It. “Moogstar digitized the reel to reel tapes, which had been sitting in a closet for decades. The demo for ‘Please Let Me Go Around Again’ [which would become a duet with his friend, the late John Prine] started with a drum machine intro that we used as a placeholder for initial tracking, but as the session continued, we soon realized that was going to be the only drums we needed on the entire album.”

ADRIAN YOUNGE - "THE AMERICAN NEGRO"

The very talented psychedelic soul/jazz/hip hop/etc musician Adrian Younge is releasing a new album of music and spoken word, The American Negro, on February 26 via Jazz Is Dead, and you can get a feel for what to expect from the just-released title track. "This project dissects the chemistry behind blind racism, using music as the medium to restore dignity and self-worth to my people," Adrian says. "It should be evident that any examination of Black music is an examination of the relationship between Black and white America. This relationship has shaped the cultural evolution of the world and its negative roots run deep into our psyche." Adrian also launches the Invisible Blackness podcast this Thursday (2/4) and has the short film T.A.N. coming to Amazon Music later this month.
