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. 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 LINDA LINDAS - "NINO"

The Linda Lindas follow "Racist, Sexist Boy" and "Oh!" with "Nino," an under-two-minute garage punk ripper named after vocalist and guitarist Bela’s cat Nino (following their 2020 song about her cat Monica). The band says, "If you listen carefully there is a real-life, remarkably talented cat named Lil Dude playing piano on it. (We have the footage!)"

CHARLOTTE ADIGERY & BOLIS PUPUL - "HAHA"

Charlotte Adigery & Bolis Pupul have shared another single from their upcoming debut album, Topical Dancer, that will be out in March via Soulwax's DEEWEE label.

CHAI - "END" (CONFIDENCE MAN REMIX)

CHAI are releasing a remix EP, WINK TOGETHER, soon, featuring reworks of WINK tracks by Busy P, ZAZEN BOYS, Beenzino and more. The lead track is a remix of "END" by Confidence Man. “CHAI and ConMan are a match made in party heaven,” Confidence Man says. “When we heard their track ‘END,’ we just knew we had to put our hands all over it. Make the girls the 90’s hip hop stars they truly are. And if we do say so ourselves, it’s truly turned into the collab of our dreams.”

GRUFF RHYS - "DISTANT SNOWY PEAKS"

Gruff Rhys has shared a video for "Distant Snowy Peaks, the hypnotic and moving closing track from this year's fantasti Seeking New Gods. Directed by Mark James, it's as wondrous as the, with some Wooly Mammoths adding just a little whimsy. While "Distant Snowy Peaks" is not a Christmas song, per se, it would be a welcome addition to any holiday playlist.

--

BILLY NOMATES - "CHRISTMAS IS FOR LOVERS, GHOSTS AND CHILDREN"

"Merry Chrysler," Billy Nomates says of this sort-of holiday song that takes stock of the tough year most of us have had. "Christmas isn't for everyone, well....lovers, ghosts & children."

BOY HARSHER - "GIVE ME A REASON"

Darkwave duo Boy Harsher have shared a new track from their soundtrack to their new horror film, The Runner. “With 'Give Me a Reason,' we wanted to write something that encapsulates that feeling of yearning — the way we feel when we catch eyes from across the room," say the band's Jae Matthews. "Our music can be flirty and crushable, and it's fun to play with that."

--

CHASTITY BELT - "FAKE"

We've already heard "Fear" from Chastity Belt's new 7" and now here's the flip. "This song is about not being able to be honest and vulnerable with someone - talking about surface level things in order to avoid real conversations," says singer Julia Shapiro. "It started as a poem I wrote when I was camping at Lake Siskiyou in Mt. Shasta, and then I turned it into a song."

--

Portrayal of Guilt already released two albums this year, and now here's yet another new song, "Chamber of Misery Pt. III," for the Decibel Flexi Series. The band's gnarly fusion of black/death metal and hardcore/screamo is in fine form on this one, which absolutely slays.

Nashville musician allie recently released their debut album Maybe Next Time, and they've now followed it with a new 7" as part of Saddle Creek's Document series, which is available for pre-order now.

--

CARLY COSGROVE - "MUNCK"

Philly emo trio Carly Cosgrove are gearing up to release a new album on Wax Bodega, and while most details on that are TBA, they did just release lead single "Munck," which was produced by Hop Along's Joe Reinhardt.

Hurray For the Riff Raff's new album Life on Earth is due out February 18 via Nonesuch, and the latest single is "Jupiter's Dance," which Alynda Segarra says is "A song in the shape of a guardian angel.

Long-running Ohio DIY indie-punks Delay are following 2014's Circle Change with their first album in seven years, Songs For Money, next week via Salinas Records. New single "Drunk Dreams" starts out as an indie-punk banger, and then it has an electronic mid-section with spoken word by Martha's Nathan Stephens-Griffin, before the original song comes roaring back in.

--

WOMBO - "ONE OF THESE"

Louisville band Wombo just released this instantly appealing new single, mixing winsome vocals and melody over a sludgy indie rock backing. “One of These” is about duality," say the band, "like finding how to balance chaos and structure instead of choosing one or the other. The song is also about wanting to crawl into a hole but not letting yourself. I feel like every now and again many people have the desire to ignore everything going on around them; all the turmoil and hate and fighting, and hide away and live a quiet life. It’s a fantasy and the song is me playing with that fantasy, all the while knowing it’s a fools errand.”

--

--

EXEK - "(I'M AFTER) YOUR BEST INTEREST"

Australian group EXEK will release a new album, ADVERTISE HERE, on February 4 via Castle Face. As label boss and head Oh See John Dwyer notes in the press release, they make twitchy, paranoid post punk that recalls "Brian Eno, White Fence, PiL, Full Circle, ESG, all things Geoff Barrows, Eroc, Lard Free, and music of free weirdos everywhere." You can get a taste right now via "(I'm After) Your Best Interest," which has a bit of a Wire feel, too. If you dig arty, claustrophobic pop, this will be right up your dark alley.
