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.

OPEN MIKE EAGLE - "DEATH PARADE"

Open Mike Eagle's new album Anime, Trauma and Divorce comes out this Friday (10/16), and new single "Death Parade" continues Mike's trend of constantly breaking down barriers in rap music. It pulls as much from aggressive, in-your-face rap as it does from more cerebral, abstract forms of the genre, and it's full of the kind of witty punchlines that could only be the work of OME.

LINDSTROM & PRINS THOMAS - "MARTIN 5000"

Norwegian space disco aficionados Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas will release their album together, simply titled III, on November 20 via Smalltown Supersound. It's been 11 years since their last but they haven't lost the beat. "Our partnership is very democratic -- we never turn down each other's ideas. And if it goes wrong, we blame it on the other guy," Thomas jokes. "The tracks that Lindstrøm sent me this time were almost like standard house tracks. I already had an idea of what I wanted to do, so I forced those tracks into new shoes and dresses." Check out their new look with single "Martin 5000."

KABAKA PYRAMID - "NEVER TROD ALONE"

Having released his great debut album Kontraband in 2018, Kingston reggae singer Kabaka Pyramid has kept busy this year, with a guest appearance on Chronixx's "Same Prayer"; the "5Gs" single with Jesse Royal, Royal Blu, Munga Honorable, and Runkus; and a few of his own singles like "Babylon Fallin" and "Nice Up The Dance."

EARLY HUMANS - "TENTACLES"

Nashville's Early Humans recently released their new album A Wave, which puts a fresh spin on the punkiest moments of early Gin Blossoms. If you're looking for a good place to start with them, try the single "Tentacles," which would've sounded right at home on alt-rock radio in the '90s.

--

DANIELLE DURACK - "BROKEN WINGS"

Phoenix, AZ-based songwriter Danielle Durack announced a new album, No Place, due out January 15, 2021, and shared the first single, "Broken Wings," which she describes as "a kind of wry take on my questionable taste in men. The song is pretty self critical, like, 'why do you keep doing this to yourself?' But also pretty jab-y towards the men in question. It's about wanting something that isn’t good for me."

--

MALIŠA BAHAT+ ZMAR - SPLIT

SUN JUNE - "KAREN O"

Austin-based band Sun June released their debut LP, Years, in 2018 via Keeled Scales. They signed to Run for Cover for its follow up, which they've now announced. Somewhere is due out February 5, 2021, via Run for Cover and Keeled Scales. New single "Karen O" moves at a slow, poignant pace, brimming with feeling with each line. "'Karen O' is one of the only songs we've written that takes place over the course of a single night, and we hope we captured what it feels like when you're completely worn out but can't bring yourself to go home and go to sleep," the band write. "It's about the kind of night you let heartache swallow you whole, and you find yourself heading straight toward the things you should be running away from. The actual Karen O is a hero of ours of course, and in the song she spurs on a lonely night of reflection about what could be versus what can't. It covers some of our favorite topics-love, performance, regret, and hereditary drinking problems-and explores how we sometimes choose to heighten grief rather than reduce it. It also features a voicemail mailbox, which is unfortunate."

SINAI VESSEL - "SHAMEPLANT"

Sinai Vessel have followed the lush indie/emo "Guest In Your Life" with the second single off their upcoming album Ground Aswim. This one's a little rawer and edgier and comes with a choppy guitar riff that doesn't not sound like '90s Everclear.

--

LANDE HEKT - "80 DAYS OF RAIN"

--

JANE WEAVER - "THE REVOLUTION OF SUPER VISIONS"

UK artist Jane Weaver has announced her next album, Flock, which will be out March 5 via Fire. Where her last few records, like 2017's Modern Kosmology, have been in the realm of synthy cosmic folk, Flock explores more overtly poppy styles. Jane's still outside of Earth's gravitational pull on terrific first single "The Revolution Of Super Visions," but it's also funky and very catchy in a way she's never dabbled in before.
