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.
JUST MUSTARD – “I AM YOU” SPACE AFRIKA REMIX

ONE TRUE PAIRING (EX WILD BEASTS) – “FROZEN FOOD CENTRE”
One True Pairing, aka former Wild Beast co-leader Tom Fleming, is back with this new single. “There’s a Chris Marker quote, ‘I have been around the world several times, and now only banality interests me,’” Tom says. “Places that aren’t on the map and may not ever be. Well-kept gardens, ring roads, clusters of identical houses. Ghouls ten years your senior seeping out of the cracks. They know your name and your habits, drifting under the floodlights in the car park.”
COLOURING – “FOR YOU”
Jack Kenworthy will release Love To You, Mate, his new album as Colouring, on February 23 via Bella Union. “I’ve always been on the side of making up scenarios rather than being really honest about my life within my music,” Jack says of the album. “This is the first time I’ve been able to do that. I’ve been less scared of it because it’s not my story. It’s a shared one.” This is the first single
