So many artists, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), put together some more new music that we would call âindieâ and talk about what metal is releasing. We post music news, song premieres and more all day long. We update a weekly playlist of some of our favorite tracks right now. Here’s a daily recap with a bunch of interesting, recently released songs in one place.
