So many artists, so many songs, 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. 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.

KEIYAA - "CAMILLE'S DAUGHTER"

KeiyaA has released her first new song since her great 2020 debut album Forever, Ya Girl, which will appear on the Touching Bass presents Soon Come compilation, due July 1 via Touching Bass. It picks up where the lo-fi R&B/soul of her debut LP left off, but a little cleaner and a little more psychedelic, and it's great stuff.

BELLE AND SEBASTIAN - "YOUNG AND STUPID"

"Young and Stupid" is the most Belle & Sebastian-y song the group have released yet  from upcoming album A Bit of Previous, with a warm nostalgic feel that's accentuated by photographs of the band from long ago.

NIGHTLANDS (DAVE HARTLEY OF THE WAR ON DRUGS) - "MOONSHINE"

Dave Hartley of The War on Drugs will release his latest album as Nightlands, Moonshine, on July 15 via Western Vinyl. The title track is an ethereal creation that is based around "America the Beautiful." "This was never intended to be an overtly political record," says Dave. "I have so many friends who are able to process the frustration of current events gracefully or with wisdom or in a nuanced way, but I often find myself just consumed with anger about it all. I decided to just let that come out, and it manifested itself lyrically."

MARISSA NADLER - "QUICKSILVER DAYDREAMS OF MARIA"

Marissa Nadler has shared one of her three covers from the upcoming Townes Van Zandt tribute album that also features Cave In and Amenra. Marissa tells New Noise that she's "been a fan of Townes Van Zandt’s music for nearly as long as [she's] been writing songs," and it's not hard to hear how her haunting folk music takes cues from TVZ, so it should come as no surprise that Marissa makes "Quicksilver Daydreams of Maria" her own and sounds great doing it.

THE BRUCE LEE BAND - "I HATE THIS!"

The Bruce Lee Band have shared the second single off their upcoming album One Step Forward. Two Steps Back. (due May 27 via vocalist Mike Park's Asian Man Records), and this one's a 92-second, fired-up ska-punk ripper that was written by band member Jeff Rosenstock and taught to the rest of the band right before they recorded it, and you can really feel that spontaneity coming through in the song.

--

AXIOMA - "A NEW DARK AGE"

Cleveland's Axioma will follow their 2019 debut LP Crown with their sophomore album, Sepsis, on June 24 via Translation Loss. The first single is "A New Dark Age," a black metal/sludge/post-hardcore hybrid that the band tells Decibel is about the concept that "the more things change, the more they stay the same [...] We like to leave ideas open to interpretation, so please enjoy and/or despise our miscreant take on the state of the destruction of the human race by none other than ourselves."

PUSSY RIOT - "HATEFUCK" FT. SLAYYYTER

"Audio-visual art piece 'HATEFUCK' is the next piece of Pussy Riot's ongoing 2022 cycle 'Patriarchy R.I.P.' that revolves around a super(s)hero character who owns magic superwoman-like qualities & uses these powers to destroy the patriarchy," Nadya Tolokonnikova says. "The song follows 'PUNISH' and 'LAUGH IT OFF,' which were released earlier this year and runs in tandem with Pussy Riot-curated exhibit 'Patriarchy R.I.P.' that runs on billboards all across the US, mostly red states. 'HATEFUCK' heroines, vengeful dominatrixes and goddesses, they serve justice by creating a hell on earth for sexual abusers, for privileged exploiters of marginalized, alienated and objectified groups. Created under the influence of Hieronymus Bosch's visions of hell."

--

WORMROT - "WHEN TALKING FAILS, IT'S TIME FOR VIOLENCE"

Sinagpore's Wormrot have shared another track off their upcoming LP Hiss, and it starts out in their usual chaotic grindcore territory before turning into something that sounds more like classic first-wave punk.

FANCLUBWALLET - "TRYING TO BE NICE"

Hannah Judge is releasing her debut album as fanclubwallet, You Have Got To Be Kidding Me, next month via AWAL, and the latest single from it is the infectious "Trying To Be Nice." "'Trying To Be Nice' was written over the course of a couple years," she says. "The first half of the song includes lyrics I wrote on the Greyhound to my hometown after deciding to move back home, and the second half was written a few years later in a studio in the wood. Both parts of the song were written at different times when I was feeling really unsure of myself. It's all about wondering what people think of you and questioning what you think of yourself.”

Dot Allison has shared another track from her upcoming Entangled Remix EP. This song is a remix of a track that didn't end up on last year's Heart-Shaped Scars, and was remixed by y The Anchoress (Catherine Anne Davies). Says dot: “I think Catherine, 'The Anchoress' is absolutely brilliant, I love her music which to me, has a beautiful sonic deep elegance and I also feel a kinship with the women, who as singer-songwriter-programmer-producers, have had to navigate a historically male-dominated industry.” The EP is out April 29.

--

--

TESS PARKS - "DO YOU PRAY"

Here's another preview of Tess Parks' new album And Those Who Were Seen Dancing that's out in May. "Do You Pray," has a psychedelic blues vibe, with a driving rhythm section that takes it into Primal Scream Territory. Tess says, “The song is a mix of two traditionals: ‘My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean’ and ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’. This is one of a few songs on the album where my dad can be heard playing my grandfather's old piano.”

DION LUNADON - "LIVING AND DYING WITH YOU"

Former A Place to Bury Strangers bassist Dion Lunadon has announced new album Beyond Everything which will be out June 10 via In the Red. Lunadon played nearly everything on the album himself, with help from drummers Blaze Bateh (Bambara) and Nick Ferrante (The Black Hollies). First single "Living And Dying With You" is an amped up garage psych ripper. “This was the last song written for the record," Dion says. "I think it’s a pretty romantic idea. ’Til death do we part kind of stuff. The title says it all. I came up with the video idea as a straight narrative of the song. Julián and I decided to use animals instead of humans as the characters. Different species getting along and getting it on.”

--

LA NEVE - "ROUGH MUSIC"

History Solved, the new EP from La Neve, is out on Friday, and ahead of its release they've shared a final single, the bold "Rough Music."

--

NAIMA BOCK (EX-GOAT GIRL) - "GIANT PALM"

Former Goat Girl member Naima Bock has announced her solo debut, Giant Palm, which will be out July 1 via Sub Pop. (She announced her signing with the label earlier this year.) The gauzy, gorgeous title track is the new single. "Giant Palm was written collaboratively by myself and Joel Burton (who arranged and produced the whole album)," Naima says. "I wrote the vocal melody and lyrics and he wrote the instrumentation. The recording process was limited (which I always find the most creatively productive way to record) by what we had in Joel’s room and recorded during the summer of 2020, resulting in mostly electronic instruments apart from the acoustic guitar. The vocals were later recorded by my dad, Victor Bock. We named the album after this song as it was the one that most reflected our collaboration as musicians and the innocence and freedom that characterised the making of the record.”

--

GUIDED BY VOICES - "ALEX BELL"

The ever-prolific Guided by Voices have announced a new 7" single that will be out September 30. It's titled "Alex Bell," and at least in name and on the cover art, it's a tribute to Big Star songwriters Alex Chilton and Chris Bell. Musically, it is not overtly Big Star-esque, but is another mega-catchy, big-riffed Guided by Voices earworm.
