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.

Today was also a Bandcamp day, so some of today's new songs were Bandcamp exclusives and you can see a much longer list of today's Bandcamp-exclusive releases here.

ZOLA JESUS - "KRUNK" (ARMENIAN FOLK SONG COVER)

Zola Jesus has covered the Armenian folk song "Krunk" as a Bandcamp exclusive to raise money for the Armenia Fund. "I first heard the song ‘Krunk’ (Crane) while listening to a collection of songs sung by Lousine Zakarian, a renowned Armenian soprano," she said. "Her recording was so devastatingly beautiful, it spoke to me on many levels. The song evoked so much yearning and sadness, yet at the same time it felt so delicate, like her voice could lift off and fly away. It felt like the purest expression of the ineffable Armenian Soul. I never thought I’d be able to do the song justice, and I still don’t, but the song is so meaningful to me that performing it became a compulsion. Once I heard about the crisis happening in Artsakh, my heart really pained for the Armenian people. They have survived genocides, wars, battles for autonomy and independence, and now this — fighting to reclaim a sacred place that represents so much of their ancient heritage and resilience. I wanted to honor and pay my support to the Armenian Soul, and to acknowledge all the lives tragically lost this year in the war with Azerbaijan. Proceeds of this song will go to the Armenian Fund, to help support the needs of civilians on the ground in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh.)"

--

GHOST POWER (STEREOLAB/DYMAXION) - "Asteroid Witch"

Even though he stays busy with Cavern of Anti-Matter, the reunited Stereolab, and running label Duophonic, Tim Gane always has time for a side project. Ghost Power is the latest of those, a collaboration with Jeremy Novak of Dymaxion and they just released their debut 7" via Duophonic. Both tracks are ultra-groovy instrumentals that sound somewhere between krautrock (surprise), the more experimental side of late-'60s ye-ye, and early-'80s post punk.
