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.

LORD HURON - "LONG LOST"

Lord Huron have shared the title track (and third single) off their upcoming album Long Lost, and this one finds them combining their trademark indie folk with sweeping, string-laden, vintage balladry.

Slothrust announced their fifth album, Parallel Timeline, due out September 10 via Dangerbird Records, and shared a new single, "Strange Astrology," which bandleader Leah Wellbaum says is "one of the only proper love songs I have ever written. It’s an honest exploration of what it means to love someone who is intrinsically different than you. It’s about hoping that those juxtaposing qualities and instincts encourage meaningful growth instead of chaos, but knowing that inevitably it will always be a bit of both. That is part of the fun of being in love with someone whose way of being starkly contrasts yours. I have always been fascinated by those differences and all the adventures and new perspectives they offer.”
