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.

THE WEDDING PRESENT - "THE LONELIEST TIME OF YEAR"

“Ah, the old ‘Christmas song’," says The Wedding Present's David Gedge. "To be honest, I’ve kind of been one of those ‘bah, humbug’ types ever since I realised that the only thing we’re really celebrating on 25 December is capitalism! 'Thanks for the list of stuff you want me to buy for you, here’s a list of stuff I want you to buy for me.' There’s nothing wrong with that, I suppose, but, for me, one of the most appealing things about the festive season is the way pop songs always seem more poignant when they’re also Christmas songs. It’s all about heightened expectation and disappointment, perhaps. I’ve had a go myself a couple of times over the years, of course, and it seemed fitting to have another crack at it.” It's all very Wedding Present, with with the kind of loud-quiet-loud dynamics you may not associate with the holidays but they make work. The video is out there.

SILVERSUN PICKUPS - "JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS" (LOW COVER)

"We’ve been fans of Low’s beautiful music for a long time now," say Silversun Pickups on sharing their version of Low's indie rock holiday classic. “When we heard the news about Mimi’s passing, we were incredibly sad. With Alan’s blessing, we decided to cover one of their Christmas songs, with hopes of raising money for a cause dear to Alan in Mimi’s name. Low’s Christmas is a classic. It was the first one I ever heard that made me feel holiday music could be cool." All proceeds from this cover go to Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities, a charity of Alan’s choice in Mimi Parker’s name.
