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.

ACID KING - "DESTINATION PSYCH/BEYOND VISION"

San Francisco doom vets Acid King will release their first album in eight years, Beyond Vision, on March 24 via Blues Funeral Recordings. The new nearly-eight-minute single "Destination Psych/Beyond Vision" finds them less in metal territory and leans more directly into '60s-style psychedelia.

KELELA - "CONTACT"

Kelela's anticipated new album Raven is out next month, and the latest single is the dancefloor-ready "Contact." "'Contact’ has a little bit of something for every part of the night," Kelela says. "It’s a soundtrack for ‘pre-gaming’ (a song to play as you’re getting ready or on your way to the club). It’s also the interior club experience: the heat that envelops you when you walk into a packed rave. All this culminates in a very naughty, psychedelic moment in the back of the club with a lover.”

SWIM CAMP - "DOUGIE (FOR SHARYL)"

Swim Camp (aka Tom Morris) has announced a new album, Steel Country, due February 24 via Julia’s War Recordings, the label curated by They Are Gutting A Body Of Water bandleader Douglas Dulgarian. Along with the announcement comes new single "Dougie (For Sharyl)," a dose of breezy, calming indie rock that Tom says is "about developing a codependent friendship with someone who is not good for you."

SOFTCULT - "DRESS"

Softcult will release their new EP see you in the dark on March 24, and their new single "Dress" and its video tackles sexual assault, consent, and "the lingering fear and trauma that haunts us long after these experiences have happened" over a backdrop of grungy dream pop.

--

LISEL - "IMMATURE"

Lisel's latest single from her new album Patterns for Auto-Tuned Voices and Delay is another layered, experimental vocal track, accompanied by a video directed by Kate Watson-Wallace. Of the video, Lisel says, "It’s the repetitive movements that only develop minimally, as well as the small, pedestrian, everyday nature of the gestures and set design. Interacting with everyday objects and gestures but in a repetitive way that changes the nature of their meaning.”

--

TITHE - "PARASITE"

Tithe have shared another single off their upcoming album for Profound Lore, Inverse Rapture, and this one finds them starting off in sludge metal territory before heading into their usual blackened fury.

--

HEARTWORMS - "RETRIBUTIONS OF AN AWFUL LIFE"

London artist Heartworms (real name: Jojo Orme) has announced the A Comforting Notion EP which is out March 24 via Speedy Wunderground. The lead single is "Retributions Of An Awful Life," a sharp, danceable number that recalls the post-punk resurgence of the mid-'00s. “The song itself lyrically is deeply unsettling, I wanted it to come alive in action," says Heartworms of the song and its striking video. "I had an idea of being kitted up in full militaria of no specific regiments, in black and white, putting my body through cold water and wet mud. This was stepping outside my comfort zone because I’m not a skilled swimmer; deep water frightens me immensely, especially when cold and in full military gear.”

JENNY O. - "YOU ARE LOVED ETERNALLY"

Los Angeles-based songwriter Jenny O's new album Spectra is out in February on Mama Bird Recording Co., and the latest single is "You Are Loved Eternally." "The phrase 'You Are Loved Eternally' was hand-painted on an old mirror frame in my friend’s grandfather’s cabin," Jenny says. "Weeks after I visited in 2020, the cabin and everything it contained burned up in the Sequoia Complex Fire along with 10% of the world’s giant sequoias. I imagine that mirror reflecting a room of flames before it too was consumed- the 1950’s furniture, local nature books, even the iron wood stove melted. At that time someone I love deeply was in trouble, in depressive peril. I wrote this song for them, for me, for everyone I know and don’t know. We get lost and fall disconnected from the warm glow of human connectivity, loving awareness, the web of life..."

AMBER ARCADES - "TRUE LOVE"

"The song is loosely about a weekend trip I took with my partner when we had been dating for a couple of months," says Amber Arcades. "That weekend everything just clicked for me and I think I fully realized then that I wanted to go for this person. That realization is so wonderful and scary at the same time! We put so much pressure on ourselves with regards to romantic love and all our wants and needs that we want it to fulfill. I also strongly realized that weekend though that the things I value in a relationship have changed through the years, what's important is more clear and things are simpler now in that way." Amber's new album Barefoot on a Diamond Road is out February 10 via Fire.
