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.

TUNING - "PACIFIC"

Bay Area melodic hardcore band Tuning will release a new EP, A Beacon In Impossible Seas, on July 2 via Indecision Records, and first single "Pacific" is a ripper, the perfect mix of tuneful and aggressive.

MYKKI BLANCO - "SUMMER FLING" FT. KARI FAUX

The latest single from Mykki Blanco's new mini-album Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep, was inspired by Missy Elliot and Timbaland. "I wanted ‘Summer Fling’ to feel like a song I could have heard at my middle school dance, maybe it's because those were the years in which I was coming of age," Mykki says. "Y2K aesthetics still influence me heavily at some point in the creation of my songs. I always feel like the Y2K vibe haunts its way into the room and makes its presence felt on my records. ‘Summer Fling’ is essentially about ghosting someone, it's a playful song about the weird ups and downs of dating. I loved writing this song and it got even better when I recruited rapper and vocalist Kari Faux to be on the track. Kari's delivery is slick and charged up, she takes no prisoners with her bars. She adds a layer of bravado and feminine mystique to the song. In addition to her verse that she wrote, she also contributed to the writing of the hook.
