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.

RUSSIAN CIRCLES - "BETRAYAL"

Instrumental metal trio Russian Circles have shared the second single off their upcoming album Gnosis, and it's another great dose of heavy hypnotism.

STEVE LACY - "SUNSHINE" (ft. FOUSHEÉ)

Steve Lacy's anticipated sophomore album Gemini Rights arrives this Friday, and he's now shared another single, "Sunshine," which features airy crooner Fousheé.

--

RACHKIA NAYAR - "NAUSEA"

Rachika Nayar's second album, Heaven Come Crashing, is out in August, and the latest single is the foreboding, cinematic "Nausea." "Around the time of writing this song, I was listening to a lot of 90s trance from labels like Eye-Q Records," Rachika says. "There’s just something incredible about how they wring such heart-wrenching dance floor anthems out of the plainest melodies and chintziest digital synths, one of which I used on this song (the M1 piano)."

MEECHY DARKO - "GET LIT OR DIE TRYIN'"

Meechy Darko of Flatbush Zombies has shared the second single off his upcoming debut solo album Gothic Luxury. It was co-produced by Dot Da Genius and theycallmeParker, who provide a dark, psychedelic instrumental that's perfect for Meech's unique rapping style.

--

HORACE ANDY - "FEVERISH"

It's titled Midnight Scorchers and will be out in September via ON-U Sound.

MARLON WILLIAMS - "RIVER RIVAL"

“This tune began with an idle google search," Marlon Williams says of this expansive, motorik single. "The Latin noun ‘rivalis’ means people competing for the same source of water. That got me excited and seemed to hit upon a central occupation of the record as a whole. Resource scarcity, very generally construed, is at the heart of most conflict: economically, materially, socially. Musically, it started out as a bleary-eyed Nick Drake-esque acoustic rambler but somehow, perhaps counterintuitively, it felt too heavy that way so with a bit of fussing and redressing (largely in pre-production with Mark Perkins) it gradually morphed into the cyclical synth rock-roller before you. Under Tom Healy’s guiding hand, Cass (Basil) and Paul (Taylor) then built up the rhythmic intensity, each stanza pushing the point a little more urgently every time. I reconnected with my buddy and 'Vampire Again' collaborator Steve Gullick to make the video in a studio in Cambridge while on the recent tour with Lorde. I was so tired I couldn’t be bothered blinking.” Marlon's new album, My Boy, is out September 9 on Dead Oceans

--

JULIE ODELL - "CARDINAL FEATHER"

New Orleans-based singer-songwriter Julie Odell has announced a new album, Autumn Eve, due out September 30 via Frenchkiss Records. The new single is propulsive retro rocker "Cardinal Feather," which Odell says "was born out of a panic attack. It’s about finding support in the dark times and finding the strength within to be gentle with yourself. It’s about accepting help when you need it and not being ashamed for needing it. It can be hard to feel seen when you can’t fully recognize yourself in moments of extreme anxiety and confusion. I’m thankful for the people who have stuck around after all the moments like this that I’ve had, along with so many others."

--

THE FLATLINERS - "RAT KING"

Canadian punks The Flatliners have shared the third single off their first album in five years, New Ruin, and this one works in some grungy anthemicism.

--

GORDI - "INHUMAN"

Australian musician Sophie Payten's new EP as Gordi, Inhuman, is due out August 19 via Jagjaguwar, and the latest single is the smoothly autotuned "Inhuman." "When I wrote ‘Inhuman,’ I was thinking about the blackened roadsides on my drive from Sydney to Lismore in 2019,” Payten says. “I had to turn back halfway because the fires were too out of control. I was supposed to start work in Lismore Hospital on the Monday where I would meet countless patients who couldn’t be discharged because their homes had been destroyed. Hearing one story after the next made me numb, and being numb to that sort of tragedy feels like forgetting to be human."

--

CHARLEY CROCKETT - "I'M JUST A CLOWN"

The highly prolific country outlaw Charley Crockett has announced a new album, The Man From Waco, due September 9 via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. Every song was written or co-written by Charley, and the album is said to have a loose narrative thread that ties all the songs together. The first taste is the sweeping, vintage-sounding "I'm Just A Clown."

--

ORTHODOX - "CAVE IN"

Nashville nu-metalcore band Orthodox have shared the second single off upcoming LP Learning To Dissolve (due 8/19 via Century Media), and it's another fine example of this band's ability to simultaneously revive the sounds of Y2K-era nu metal and metalcore in a refreshingly modern way.

--

KAL MARKS - "MY NAME IS HELL"

Kal Marks have shared the second single off their upcoming album My Name Is Hell (due 8/5 via Exploding In Sound), and this one really shows off the expressive quirkiness of Carl Shane's voice.

--

POOL KIDS - "ARM'S LENGTH"

Florida emo band Pool Kids have shared the third single off their upcoming self-titled sophomore album, and this one does a great job of toeing the line between Pool Kids' shiny pop smarts and their heavier rock side. It also comes with a very fun video.

--

JULIA, JULIA - "FEVER IN MY HEART"

Julia Kugel of The Coathangers is releasing her debut solo album as Julia, Julia, Derealization, due out September 30 via Suicide Squeeze Records. She's shared a woozy new single, "Fever In My Heart," which she says is "about losing yourself, losing your mind and liking it. In some weird way it felt magical to feel completely out of place in reality. I felt like I had heightened senses, like I could feel a rising vibration in my heart. Everything was falling apart but I liked it. I felt alive. I had seen a glimpse of my true self and I knew her right away. I saw a reflection that wasn’t distorted for once, and I wanted to follow it through the looking glass to the other side where I could feel totally at peace. I hadn’t known that was possible before. Layers and layers of vocals convey the confusion and ecstasy of madness. I call this my acoustic techno song since it has a dance aesthetic at its core, but the production is humble and mostly unplugged."

--

DANILEIGH - "DEAD TO ME"

R&B singer DaniLeigh has shared an atmospheric song about moving on from a toxic relationship.

--

SINGLE MOTHERS - "ENOUGH FOR YOU"

--

SLOAN - "SPEND THE DAY"

Canadian rock greats Sloan will release Steady, their 13th album, on October 21 via Yep Roc. That date comes just after the 30th anniversary of their debut album, Smeared, and Steady's title reflects Sloan's approach to the music biz and longevity. “They say if you want to go fast go alone but if you want to go far go together," says bassist Chris Murphy. "I don’t know if there are many other bands you can name that are still making records with their original line up 30 years in. Look it up!
