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.

BURIAL - "DOLPHINZ"

Burial released the gorgeous 12-minute single "Chemz" in December, followed by a split EP with Blackdown in April, and today he has put out the B-side to "Chemz," a 9-minute ambient track called "Dolphinz."

DANIEL AVERY - "HAZEL & GOLD"

Daniel Avery's new album Together in Static is out June 24 via Mute and here's the new single. "Much like the previous record Love + Light from last year, Together in Static felt like it arose from nowhere in the most positive way, full of joy and hope for the future," says Daniel. "It was a beautiful crystal cocoon in which I could fully immerse myself. People sometimes ask me about what I use in the studio, what equipment I collect, but those technical details are never really at the front of my mind. For me I’ve always been drawn to something more abstract. I love the idea of taking these machines, wherever they may come from, and making them sing with a human heart or a living soul. This track definitely comes from that place. It’s something of an electronic love letter to a special person in my life and I’m really proud of it.”

LUKAH - "STIGMATA" (ft. BOLDY JAMES)

WEDNESDAY - "HANDSOME MAN"

Asheville, NC band Wednesday have announced their third album, Twin Plagues, due out August 13 via Orindal Records. The first single is "Handsome Man," a fuzzy, rocking track that fans of Hop Along should enjoy. "This song is kind of about using absurdity as an outlet," lead vocalist and guitarist Karly Hartzman says. "I think the magical realism/absurd nature of Richard Braughtigan/George Saunders/Isabell Allende novels is what attracts me to them. I find comfort now in things that make no sense. Believing things happen in a random fashion is the only comfort in a world where bad things are always happening on purpose."

Tried to empathize with what he was going through. I tried to mend my friend.”
