So many artists, so little time. Every week we review a handful of new albums (from all genres), round up even more new music we’d call “indie” and talk about what metal comes out. We post music news, track premieres and more all day. We are updating a weekly playlist of some of our current favorite tracks. Here is a daily summary with a bunch of interesting and recently released songs in one place.

ABSENT IN BDOY (NEUROSIS, AMENRA, SEPULTURA) – “RISE FROM RUINS”

Post-metal supergroup Absent In Body (Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Colin H. Van Eeckhout & Mathieu Vandekerckhove of Amenra, and original Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera) have shared the third single from their upcoming debut album plague god, due 3/25 via Relapse. This one starts out weird and tribal-y before turning into bone-crushing mud metal, and it’s another great taste. Get the album at splatter vinyl limited to 500.

KEVIN DEVINE – “SKIP”

Kevin Devine’s first full album in six years, Nothing’s real, so nothing’s wrong, out later this month, and the third single, the beautifully adorned indie rock “Override.” “‘Override’ is songs within a song, unpacking the kitchen sink looking for the moment you flinched, and how not to now, when you last felt safe, and how to get back there, and where are the limits, and what limit is, and where did I hide the reset key, and can I write my own mantra, and how can I root while the earth moves everything around me,” Kevin says.

JORDAN – “PRESSURE POINT”

Jordana’s first studio album, In front of the walldue out May 20 via Grand Jury, and the latest single is another taste of catchy alt-pop, Pressure Point.”

It was co-produced by Katie Von Schleicher and includes the new single “Bag of Jeans”.

OLIVER SIM (THE XX) – “ROMANCE WITH A MEMORY”

The xx’s Oliver Sim has released his first solo single, “Romance With a Memory”, produced by Jamie xx. “I’m thrilled, excited, ecstatic, coffee drunk and thrilled to share ‘Romance with a Memory’ with all of you,” Sim said. “Creepy this is the first song I’ve ever released under my own name, I really hope you all enjoy it. Produced by my dear older brother Jamie xx. I’ve also made a compilation of some of my favorite monsters, slayers and queers go down. I hope music and monsters make you as happy as they make me – I can’t tell you how much joy it brings me to watch a ghoul have a good time. moment. PS still very affectionate and happy relationship/group with Romy and Jamie.”

JAE SKEESE – “AGAINST THA GRAIN” (ft. CONWAY THE MACHINE & FLEE LORD)

Jae Skeese, who signed to Conway the Machine’s Drumwork Music Group, has released a new single featuring his label boss and like-minded rapper Flee Lord. As you’d probably expect, it’s an instantly satisfying song that sounds straight out of mid-’90s New York rap.

S. CAREY – “THE REVIVAL”

S. Carey’s new album Open me due out next month via Jagjaguwar, and the latest single is ‘Waking Up’, a plaintive ballad. “‘Waking Up’ is a song I wrote with Eli Teplin,” Carey says. “Eli had sent me a few ideas; one was a vibrant, contemplative piano loop. I absolutely loved the rhythm of this one – a bit in time, but a bit rolling like gentle waves. The lyrics lay bare what I was going through at the time: grief and grief.And the minimal instrumentation with Rob Moose’s beautiful strings marks a sweet moment on the record.

MEAT WAVE – “HONEST LIFE”

Chicago garage punks Meat Wave have released their first single for John Reis’ Swami Records, ahead of their tour with John Reis’ new supergroup PLOSIVS. It’s a ripper “about the delirium and exhaustion of overwork but presented as an advertisement for capitalism and labor – crafted on corporate dime, heavy lids, both caffeinated and hungover, working to live but just surviving.”

INSIDE – “LIP (I KNOW YOU WANT TO LOVE ME)”

The debut album by Philadelphia indie/emo band The Insides Curse on the sun, cry on the rain is out in April via Refresh Records, and this anthemic new single finds them in ’90s grunge in their own right.

GARBAGE AND FLOWERS – “THE EYE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE”

For 25 years, New Zealand’s longtime The Garbage & Flowers have been crafting hazy pop guitar that sits somewhere between Mazzy Star and Galaxie 500 – and an obvious love for The Velvet Underground. Cinnamon Sea is their first album in six years and will be released May 13 via Fire Records. Here is the terse opening track.

LIZ LAMERE – “LIGHTS OUT”

Liz Lamere was the longtime creative partner of the late Alan Vega and she has just announced her very first solo album, keep it alive, which will be released on May 20 via In the Red. You can hear the Vega influence on this first single

NIGHT MOVEMENTS – “VULNERABLE HOURS”

Minneapolis Heart Rockers Night movements are back with this new single which singer John Pelant says is “about her forays into the app-based dating lifestyle at the age of 70 after being recently widowed. It’s based on the real experience of an acquaintance.” It’s accompanied by a surreal video that “gives a slightly different take on the song, one of her vulnerabilities, inner demons, and insecurities during a first date gone wrong. A little soap opera ride televised at the market while you’re lost in your head.

SCALPING – “STAY IN STASIS”

If you’re a fan of late ’90s electronica (think Bomb the Bass or Leftfield), so are British band Scalping, who bring a dark and sinister vibe to new single “Remain in Stasis.” It’s from their new UK album Void which is out April 29th.

THE MUSIC OF ED SCHRADER – “EUROPEAN MOONS”

Ec Schrader’s new album Music Beat Nightclub Reverie comes out in a few weeks and while most of the songs we’ve heard so far lean towards ’80s gothic post-punk, “European Moons” is more of a tender ballad.

GREENTEA PENG – “YOUR SPIRIT”

British artist Greentea Peng, who released her amazing debut album last year, is back with this new single. Like his album, “Your Mind” is a beautiful journey, full sweeping strings, dubby beats and soulful horns.

RAMMSTEIN – “ZEIT”

Rammstein only operates in one mode: emphasis. The title track of their new album Time is no exception, and the video (a little NSFW) doesn’t disappoint either.

MIRANDA LAMBERT – “STRANGE”

Miranda Lambert’s new album palomino comes out in April. It’s the new single.

CATS – “STRUCKED BY LIGHTNING”

Aussie punk rockers The Chats are back with their first new single since their 2020 debut album High risk behavior. “Struck by Lightning” is a ripper on high-risk behavior and what it must be like to be hit by lightning from the sky.

EINAR SELVIK (WARDRUNA) – “SURTR”

When he’s not leading Norwegian dark folk band Wardruna, Einar Selvik makes music for film, television and video games.
