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. 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.

ALT-J - "HARD DRIVE GOLD"

alt-J's anticipated new album The Dream comes out 2/11 via Canvasback/Infectious Music, and new single "Hard Drive Gold" continues down the same appealing chilled-out path as lead single "U&ME."

BEIRUT - "FYODOR DORMANT"

The latest single from Beirut's new rarities compilation, Artifacts (order it on vinyl) is "Fyodor Dormant," which he wrote as a teenager. "I was an often lonely and isolated teenager and rarely if ever found friends as obsessive and similar-minded about music as myself, so starting a band always ended up seeming more or less out of the question," Zach Condon says. "This was my first experience being able to arrange for all parts with ease, and starting to craft sounds from simple wave shapes into something with character was an exciting endeavor that I still enjoy. It was on songs like this one that I started adding the acoustic instruments back into the mix, using a piano that was moved into the house that I fell in love with, and my dear companion the trumpet. It was from about this time at 16 years of age and on that I slowly began to shed the training wheels of the computer program and wander deeper and deeper into the unknown sonic territory of Farfisa organs, accordions and ukuleles."

SEA POWER (FKA BRITISH SEA POWER) - "GREEN GODDESS"

No, this song is not about your favorite avocado-based salad dressing, though it is pretty tasty. “Green Goddess was written with [guitarist] Noble," says Sea Power singer/guitarist Jan Wilkinson. "He had the initial idea for the music which I helped arrange and add vocals to. It is a love song about everything green from the Lake District to the New Forest. The places I love to be which are quiet and restorative. It is also a love song for my wife whose favourite colour is green. A rumination on human and non-human muses. There are dark and complicated things going on but sometimes it is good to forget this and go to the places and where you are happy. A hope that the future doesn't have to be at odds with the past.” Sea Power's new album, Everything Was Forever, is out February 18.

YOUNG GUV - "IT'S ONLY DANCIN'"

Former Fucked Up guitarist Ben Cook will release new Young Guz record GUV III on March 11 and here's another track from it. "After being stranded due to Covid mid-tour in March 2020, we headed deep into the New Mexico high desert mountains," Ben says. "We got a house from a friend of a friend, and had no idea what to do with ourselves except to start writing right away. Within hours we had a little studio set up and this was the first song we came up remotely via WhatsApp with Tommy The Major who had escaped back to his home in Sudbury, Ontario. I heard Tony strumming the first three chords of the chorus with a little bit of a melody from the kitchen and a couple hours later this song was done."

POM POKO - "ENDURO CORNER"

Norwegian band Pom Poko will release the This Is Our House EP on January 28 via Bella Union. “This EP is both an afterthought and a peek into the future for us," the band say. "We are combining new recordings of old songs, old recordings of old songs and new recordings of new songs on it, and it’s kind of a demonstration of all the different identities we feel that Pom Poko can have; hammering fuzz-rock grooves, soft and yearning melodies and deconstructed noisy explorations.”

SONDRE LERCHE - "CUT" & "TURNS OUT I'M SENTIMENTAL AFTER ALL"

As an artist, it’s the kind of project you always dream about.” Here are two songs to listen to from it.
