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 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.

JOHN GRANT - “RHETORICAL FIGURE” (PROD. CATE LEBON)

John Grant will release his Cate LeBon-produced new album Boy from Michigan on June 25 and he's just shared this song that is both a tip of the hat to DEVO and good grammar. “This is a song about my love of language and rhetorical figures and what a turn-on it is when someone wields language in a very capable manner," says John.

GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW - "UNFORGETTABLE"

Georgia Anne Muldrow has shared another taste of her mostly-instrumental VWETO III, and this one's a dose of syrupy, retro-futuristic psych-funk that does include a bit of vocals.

BACHELOR - "SICK OF SPIRALING"

Melina Duterte of Jay Som and Ellen Kempner of Palehound are releasing their debut LP as Bachelor, Doomin' Sun, in May, and the latest single is the country-tinged "Sick of Spiraling," which they say "is one of the last songs we wrote and recorded together in Topanga. Both of us initially tried to play drums on the song but the groove wasn’t right so we enlisted help from James Krivchenia. He came over for a day and drummed on a few songs on the record, he really brought this song to life with his unique style. Ellen had the riff in her voice memos for a while, and had originally imagined it as a slow kinda melancholic song. Once we got together and listened back to the riff we heard it a whole new way as an upbeat driving song. After that Ellen wrote lyrics inspired by driving on tour and the rush and anxiety of being completely untethered and unprotected on the open road."

"'Hold You Back' is a stranger one," singer Sam Nicholson says. "It's got that snare beat keeping you close to the edge, and lyrically is a freakout about that dance between relationships and traveling/living overseas. The dance between two people. I wanna hold you but I don't wanna hold you back... I wanted it to feel like arriving at a party where you are way out of your depth and the only one not in a costume... We got floating strings from our friend Matt Sheers, some kind of disco-damaged melodies."

"It was all part of my new mindset of trying to be more positive about what I have and not always thinking about what I don’t. It’s about embracing the idea of happiness, doing what you can to encourage it and generally be a lot more ‘c’est la vie’ about everything. If it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. What can you do?”
