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 publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

TEAR DROP (mem BITTER END) - "LOVE YOU TO DEATH" (TYPE O NEGATIVE COVER)

Tear Drop is a new band fronted by Griffin Jarzombek of Texas metallic hardcore band, and they're releasing a new EP called Did You Wanna Love Me to Death on September 25 via Grim Reality, which will include covers of Youth Brigade's "Did You Wanna Die" and Type O Negative's "Love You To Death." The latter is out now, and it's dedicated to fellow Texas hardcore musicians Riley Gale (Power Trip) and Wade Allison (Iron Age), both of whom sadly just passed away. "We all love Type O so this was an easy choice for a cover," guitarist Patrick Flanigan told Revolver. "This song is an incredible heavy ballad. We just did our best to do the song justice." They did indeed do it justice, and gave it a metallic hardcore spin in the process.

Genre-defying Toronto punks The OBGMs have shared a new song off The End, due October 30 via Black Box Music. "This is one of those songs where we’re doing stuff other people aren’t doing," says vocalist/guitarist Densil McFarlane. "We threw bongos on the motherfucker. That song is a statement and that statement is, ‘We’re not afraid of you, and we’re willing to confront you. Come see me if you have a problem with it. We’re already outside."

LANDE HEKT - "WHISKEY"

Lande Hekt of UK indie-punk band Muncie Girls is releasing her debut solo album, Going To Hell, on January 22 via Get Better Records. "I'm no stranger to queer punk and queer politics," Lande says. "I've always taken a special interest for obvious reasons, but this record is important to me because it's the first time I'm releasing anything as an outwardly gay person." The album was recorded by The Hard Aches' Ben David, and lead single "Whiskey" is a dose of climactic, slow-burning indie rock that Lande says is about "realising that pretending you're not gay can't go on forever."

WENDY EISENBERG - "CENTREVILLE"

Wendy Eisenberg releases Auto on October 16 via Ba Da Bing and new single "Centreville" pairs chaotic art pop with complex guitar work in a way that's somewhere in the same ballpark as Battles, Deerhoof, and Maps & Atlases.

SUUNS - "PRAY"

Montreal's SUUNS have signed with Joyful Noise who will release the band's Fiction EP on October 30. First single "Pray" was actually recorded with producer John Congleton for 2016's Hold/Still. “It didn't make the cut, probably because we loved it so much and thought we had an even better version of it in us,” says the band's Liam O’Neill. “We subsequently tried to record multiple versions of this song, none of which captured the unhinged energy of this live-off-the-floor performance. Discovering this lost jam and its power felt like a reminder to keep in the moment and to trust ourselves - you just have to keep moving forward.”

--

BARTEES STRANGE - "KELLY ROWLAND"

"'Kelly Rowland' is my peak hedonistic dream, if I had no rules," Bartees Strange told Stereogum. "I was in Berlin, and I saw the most beautiful, talented, wealthy, amazing people, we partied all night and danced all night. And I was like, ‘I cannot believe people live every day like this. It’s this hyper-idealized vision of what I wish I could be, for a moment."

Here's another track from Tim Heidecker's upcoming Fear of Death, which features appearances from The Lemon Twigs and Weyes Blood.

EELS - "ARE WE ALRIGHT AGAIN"

Eels released a couple of new songs this year already, and now they've announced their thirteenth LP, Earth to Dora, due out October 30 via E Works/PIAS. "These songs came about just before the pandemic hit and changed everything," E says. "I’m hoping they can be, maybe kind of soothing or something. To hear songs dealing with things we are dreaming about getting back to. Or maybe people are dealing with some of the topics right now as well. Just one song was done in the thick of the early pandemic days, ‘Are We Alright Again,’ which is kind of a quarantine daydream I desperately needed to have."

TRAVIS - "ALL FALL DOWN"

Britpop vets Travis release new album 10 Songs on Octboer 9 and they've just shared the delicate "All Fall Down" which features frontman Fran Healy's distinctive falsetto. Fran also directed the stop-motion animated video. “In the spirit of Tony Hart, the beloved British children’s TV presenter I grew up with, I shot this stop motion birds eye view lyric video to another of our 10 Songs, ‘All Fall Down’.” Fran says. “Originally I thought it would be cool to make a book which I could film someone turning the pages to but then realized it would make a more interesting video to film the book being created.”

Faye Webster released her first new music of 2020, "In A Good Way," back in April, and now she's followed that with another new single, "Better Distractions." "I wrote this song kinda without knowing I was writing it," she says. "It’s a kind of free association, just thoughts running straight from my head onto paper untouched. I also think it’s best my band has ever sounded on record."

--

STILL CORNERS - "THE LAST EXIT"

Still Corners have announced new album The Last Exit which will be out January 22. The UK duo now call Woodstock, NY home but the Southwest's deserts were the album's inspiration. "In a world where everyone thinks all the corners of the map are filled in we like to suggest there's something beyond that, something eternal in the landscape and in our psyche," says Tessa Murray.

MARY LATTIMORE - "SILVER LADDERS"

Harpist Mary Lattimore has shared the title track from her new album Silver Ladders. "'Silver Ladders' was written about this place in Croatia on the island of Hvar, where the sea was deep greeny-blue and you could float with all of the people from the town," says Mary. "There were all of these ladders from the stone path right into the water. I thought it was the most beautiful place on Earth, as a person who loves to swim. I was hired to play a wedding in Big Sur, another breathtaking spot, and the rugged coast reminded me of my time in Croatia, so this melody came to me as I was warming up for the wedding."

MINA TINDLE - "INDIAN SUMMER"

Mina Tindle's first album in six years, SISTER, comes out on October 9 via 37d03d, and the latest single is "Indian Summer," which is accompanied by a gorgeous vintage video filmed by, and with performances from, Camila Dutervil and Indira Dominici. "Indira Dominici is one of my favorite artists," Mina Tindle says. "She seems to see and reveal beauty in people and things effortlessly. This song was originally inspired by Italo Calvino's short novel Under the Jaguar Sun, but Indira is a kind of magician and she seems to have changed the meaning of the song with her images. Camila Dutervil and her are telling me a new story with this video and I am mesmerized."
