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.

NILS FRAHM - “LATE”

Here's another track from Nils Frahm's upcoming Old Friends, New Friends. ‘Late’ was obviously recorded very late,” says Frahm. “When I used to record the piano in my tiny apartment studio in Berlin, which was called Durton studio, I had to play very quietly because I was surrounded by sleeping neighbors. In this track, you can feel this late-night dynamic in an apartment building in Berlin, where you cannot disturb your surroundings… And yeah, it turned into a lullaby that way. I hope you enjoy it.”

"Here's a new song I made in my basement," Madeline Kenney writes, "celebrating 30 years of being alive, a lot of that making music and trying to learn + be a better person/friend/musician." The song, "I'll Get Over It," is soaring psychedelic pop, mysterious and beautiful.

COMPANION - "HOW COULD I HAVE KNOWN"

Fort Collins, CO-based identical twin sisters Sophia Jo Babb have shared their debut single as Companion, "How Could I Have Known," a gentle folk track. "I started writing ‘How Could I Have Known’ at the beginning of my first autumn in northern Colorado,” Sophia says. “I quickly learned that fall is a fleeting, beautifully short time in the mountains. It takes just a few blustery days for all the yellow aspen leaves to give way to bare trees, snowfall, and early sunsets. At the time, I was engaged to my now husband. He was dealing with some concerning medical issues, and I developed an over-awareness of how quickly I could never see him again. Having lost family members without warning in the past, I became anxiously aware that just as soon as he came into my life, he could leave it, too. Though this thought, at its core, is a very scary one, when I looked beyond the fear of losing something I held so dearly, I could see the incredible gift it is to have something to hold dear in the first place. I showed Jo the beginnings of the song, and we finished it together in an afternoon.”

SCRUFFPUPPIE - "WONDERING HOW"

JJ Shubert has announced their debut album as Scruffpuppie, letters to nobody, due out January 28 via Phoebe Bridgers' Saddest Factory Records. Their latest single is "wondering how," which has an urgent pop-punk vibe. "'wondering how' has a combination of both elements from all of the songs on this record, switching from being soft and pretty, like 'paint,' and then going towards more of a rock ballad, like 'assignment song,'" JJ says. "This song talks a lot about the aftermath of my addiction, and the awe-like state that getting clean put me in. How did I get this far? A year ago I was nodding off sitting at my guitar trying to tune it correctly, and now I'm in Los Angeles recording some of the most amazing art I've ever created. 'wondering how' is a perfect example of the hope I have begun to incorporate in my writing."

PINCH POINTS - "REASONS TO BE ANXIOUS" / "BOY"

The A-side, "Reasons to Be Anxious," also doubles as the laed single from Pinch Points' upcoming album, due in March via Exploding In the Sound in the US (and Mistletone Records in AUS/NZ).

QUINTON BROCK - "TOUCH"

Multi-genre artist Quinton Brock continues the rock vibes of last year's "The The Moon" single with "Touch" (which you may recognize if you watched Quinton on The BrooklynVegan Show back in April), and this one's a fun, upbeat song that toes the line between funk and indie rock.
