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, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

FOUR TET - "4T RECORDINGS"

It made me think about some of our experiences more." "I just thought it was funny, plus the initials are WIMP3," Este Haim says. "Wimp is a hilarious word." New single "The Steps" is accompanied by a video directed by frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson, who also directed the trio's other most recent videos, and Danielle co-directed.
