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, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. 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…

I'M GLAD IT'S YOU - "BIG SOUND" & "MYTHS"

Redlands, CA's I'm Glad It's You are releasing their J Robbins-produced album Every Sun, Every Moon on May 15 via 6131 and they're currently streaming two songs from it. "Big Sound" finds them in indie/emo-tinged power pop territory, while "Myths" is more of a soaring, atmospheric ballad. Pretty cool stuff.

JOHN K SAMSON - "MILLENNIUM FOR ALL"

Weakerthans frontman John K Samson released a new solo song, "Millennium For All," which shares its name with the organization who formed to combat "the forced bag searches and metal detector scans" at Winnipeg's Millennium Library. "I wanted to write a song about the Millennium Library, which I visited and worked at weekly for most of my life until the security was installed a year ago," John tells Exclaim. "I wanted to demonstrate how the Millennium is so much more than a building full of books. It's the heart of my community and I miss it."

Update (4/14): this song is now on streaming services.

KATIE VON SCHLEICHER - "CAGED SLEEP"

Katie Von Schleicher will release her new album Consummation on May 22 via Ba Da Bing, and first single "Caged Sleep" finds her more in driving indie rock mode compared to her usual, more ballad-driven sound. She's good at this kinda thing too.

THE RENTALS - "TEEN BEAT COSMONAUT"

P.E. (PILL + EATERS) - "PINK SHIVER"

P.E., the group formed from members of Pill and Eaters, will release their debut album next week, which fuses the skonky no wave and post punk of Pill with the more experimental electronics of Eaters. "Pink Shiver" leans a little more toward Pill, with the Ben Jaffe's sax and Veronica Torres’ attitude-laden vocals in the spotlight. Cool, groovy track.

DEEPER - "LAKE SONG"

"We grow up learning and eventually intuiting how to take care of people who are physically hurt or sick," says Deeper singer/guitarist Nic Gohl of their new single. "On the other hand, caring for those struggling with mental illness is a constant process of grappling to understand the complex nuances that then dictate the best care and approach. 'Lake Song' is about supporting a loved one struggling with mental illness and wishing the pain they experience was easier to cure, like a head cold or broken bone. The chorus, 'I just want you to feel sick' is an expression of that desire." Musically the song dips a toe into Cure-like waters. Deeper's new album, Auto-Pain, is out March 27 via Fire Talk.

HALF WAIF - "HALOGEN 2"

Nandi Rose has shared this synthy mood piece from her upcoming Half Waif album The Caretaker which is out March 27 via ANTI-. "'Halogen 2' is a song about isolation and the search for strength," says Nandi. "The halogens are some of the most reactive elements on the periodic table, and in this song, winter and a life alone in the country are like halogen: an unrelenting force that produces change. I wrote this song at home in Upstate New York last March at a time when my sense of isolation was at its height. And yet I've always been someone who loves my alone time, so there was a sense of shame that I couldn't handle it this time. I needed to tell myself and anyone witnessing my restlessness: 'Don't misunderstand, I do what I must.' Nearly a year after writing the song, we shot most of the music video in the same location: my house and yard. The two opposing feelings presented by the verses and choruses are represented visually in the Blue World of cold, stagnant country life and the Orange World of the unfettered, fiery strength that lies beneath."

VELVET NEGRONI - "BAGETTE"

After dropping his solid debut LP Neon Brown in 2019, singer/producer Velvet Negroni returns with this new single "Bagette," continuing down a similar path of hard-hitting, psychedelic R&B.

--

LITURGY - "PASAQALIA II"

Liturgy have shared "Pasaqalia II," a song using samples and ideas from "Pasaqalia" off Liturgy's 2019 album H.A.Q.Q. Hunt-Hendrix considers this new song a "digital aria" that fits into his opera cycle called The Oioion Cycle — the live performance of Origin of the Alimonies, Hunt-Hendrix indicates, was just the first part. Read more, and an interview with Hunter, at Invisible Oranges.

JORDANA - "CRUNCH"

Witchita, Kansas musician Jordana, formerly Jordana Nye, is re-releasing her 2019 album Classical Notions Of Happiness via Grand Jury Music in March, with three new tracks added. One of them is low key indie rock track "Crunch," about which she says, "'Crunch' is a feeling of an overbearing want for validation from someone and getting the cold shoulder from them. The song starts out with the confidence in knowing this person could possibly notice you and ends in anger and frustration seeing that they ignored you, established by a distorted guitar solo."

MELKBELLY - "HUMAN HEART"

Chicago's Melkbelly will release new album Pith in April and they've just released this grungy new single and it's accompanying video. “For ‘Humid Heart,’ we wanted to let the mood and tone of the song guide our direction, rather than forcing anything too specific into the video,” say video directors Weird Life. “Loosely based upon the notion of going through everyday life with any sort of heightened emotions can weigh someone down, we followed our hearts and that of the song and fell down a rabbit hole. That being said, we have no regrets."

--

GORDI - "SANDWICHES"

Australian musician Gordi (real name: Sophie Payten) has just shared this shimmering new single which he says is a tribute to her late Grandmother. The song was produced by Bon Iver collaborators Chris Messina and Zach Hanson at Gordi's family home in Canowindra, Australia. “Her whole life was in Canowindra," say Gordi of her grandmother. "We made it in a house that’s a hundred meters from her house.” She'll be on tour with Of Monsters & Men this spring.
