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.

CANDY - "WORLD OF SHIT"

Candy have shared the third single off their anticipated new LP Heaven Is Here, and this is the most straight-up hardcore song released from the album so far, but still with a jagged, noisy edge. It's another very promising tatse.

POOL KIDS - "I HOPE YOU'RE RIGHT"

--

PETROL GIRLS - "PREACHERS"

--

THE DEER - "I WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE ME"

Indie folk/dream pop band The Deer have announced a new album, The Beautiful Undead, due September 9 via Keeled scales. Lead single "I Wouldn't Recognize Me" is fueled by a guitar melody that borrows more than a little from Neil Young's "Hey Hey, My My," and it's a gorgeous, airy song that frontwoman Grace Rowland calls a letter to her younger self.

--

HIVE - "SO IT IS DONE"

Minnneapolis crust/D-beat band HIVE have announced a new LP, Spiritual Poverty, due August 19 via Translation Loss, and it's a tough, metallic ripper that guitarist/vocalist says is "about the relationship between master and slave in the American political system." Listen at No Echo.

There's also a dub version by Jerry Lionz.

--

LSDXOXO - "DEMONS" (ft. EARTHEATER)

--

GWENNO - "ANIMA"

"Anima," the latest beguiling single from Gwenno's upcoming album Tresor comes with a mind-expanding, appropriately animated video by Ted Davies. “Influenced by the collage art of 60s animation (Yellow Submarine, Fantastic Planet) I envisioned iterations of Gwenno traversing the world of Anima and the unconscious, reconciling the known and unknown throughout the piece," says Ted. "I animated fluidly with little planning, fusing found footage with collage cut-outs and 2d animation sporadically, allowing the narrative to find its way to a natural crescendo and conclusion.”

--

LA LUZ - "SAN FERNANDO SHADOW BLUES"

Here's the b-side to La Luz's new single "Endless Afternoon" that is the most explicit surfy thing this band has done in a while, by way of "Hazy Shade of Winter."

--

SIMPLE MINDS- "VISION THING"

--

NINA NASTASIA - "AFTERWARDS"

Nina Nastasia's first album in 12 years, Riderless Horse, is due out on July 22 via Temporary Residence, and the latest single is the haunting, acoustic "Afterwards." "I don’t believe in ghosts…so far, but dead people can stick around for the longest time," Nina says. "They can tell you what to do and stop you from doing. I have no interest in finding out that ghosts exist. In fact I really hope they don’t. Things are complicated enough."

--

JAYWOOD - "SHINE" (FT. MCKINLEY DIXON)

“I don’t think I’ve ever really felt activated or militant as much as I did the summer of 2020,” says Jeremy Haywood-Smith, speaking to this new JayWood single. “It was an exhausting time but I wanted to try to do something to commentate on everything that was happening. As soon as the idea came to make a hip hop song I knew I had to get McKinley [Dixon] on it. The way he writes is so wild, I felt inspired to do something on that level as well." JayWood's album Slingshot is out July 15 via Captured Tracks.

ART MOORE - "A DIFFERENT LIFE"

Art Moore, the trio of Boy Scouts' Taylor Vick and Ezra Furman bandmates Sam Duerkes and Trevor Brooks, will release their self-titled debut on August 5 via ANTI-. "A Different Life" luxuriates in a dreamy wistful vibe. "A Different Life was inspired by the experience of daydreaming up another version of your life," Vick says. "I can easily get caught up in the imaginary worlds in my head, overwhelmed by the endless possibilities and versions of me that exist within them. But I am most fascinated by the version just parallel to this one, the one with only a few differences or enhancements. This song is about the experience of longing for that not so far off possibility."

--

DENDRONS - "WAIT IN LINE"

Chicago band Dendrons will release new album 5-3-8 on August 26 via via Innovative Leisure. New single "Wait in Line" is both slashing and contemplative. Singer guitarist Dane Jarvie says it "is influenced by 'The Lottery in Babylon,' a short story by the magical realism author, Jorge Luis Borges. Dealing with the role that chance supposedly plays in life, and a political and socio-economic system that operates and revolves around that variable as dogma, followed by its subsequent corruption of it. In many ways, it is a criticism of the human tendency to claim dominion of nature and capitalize on it anyway."
