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 - "THE ONLY BABY"

"I’ve been so disturbed to see how things are progressing in the U.S. and the world," writes John Grant from his current home of Iceland about this very angry, very beautiful and very long new song. "I wanted to share this song which I wrote and recorded last summer. Seems like a good time. I feel so much rage and yes, hatred towards the gaslighters, the bullies, the narcissists, the sociopaths and psychopaths, the Christian Fascist Right and of course T**** and all those who enable him and continue to do so all in the name of Jesus and/or Hitler. I know I have to figure out a way to stay calm and continue to resist the onslaught of lies without being dissolved from the inside out by my own rage and the hatred I feel towards these people who scream at the top of their lungs that we do not hear what we hear or see what we see. Yes, I’ve heard of Yoga, I’ll look into it."

KIKAGAKU MOYO - LIVE AT LEVITATION

“Playing Austin Psych Fest / Levitation was always a goal from our earliest days of the band," write Japanese band Kikagaku Moyo of this new live album, "to join the psychedelic community for a weekend of music and present our live performance.

--

HAVIAH MIGHTY - "ANTISOCIAL" (ft. OLD MAN SAXON)

Toronto rapper Haviah Mighty continues her rollout of new singles with "Antisocial," which is one of her most radio-friendly songs yet, and which features Old Man Saxon, whose charisma made him one of the most memorable contestants on Netflix's Rhythm + Flow.

--

WILLIAM FITZSIMMONS - "DOWN WITH ANOTHER ONE"

Singer-songwriter William Fitzsimmons is prepping new album Ready The Astronaut and here's a new track from it. "Like watching a winged man falling into the sea, 'Down With Another One' is the story of a person coming to terms with the inability to ever find a trusting love, or ever being the kind of partner and person they desperately want to be," says William. "It's resigning to failure as you watch yet another relationship fall to its death, and wondering if perhaps one will ever actually be able to fly."

--

"t's always fun to try dig out the skeletons buried in the songs," frontman Dustin Kensrue said.
