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.

BILL CALLAHAN - "NATURAL INFORMATION"

“I wrote this song in five and forever," sings Bill Callahan on this rollicking track from his upcoming album YTI⅃AƎЯ (out October 14). "I’m writing it right now.” You can listen to the original, or lose yourself in the "definitive version" which has been slowed down to six hours.

CAROLINE - "PEAK CHROMA" (CLAIRE ROUSAY COVER)

UK band caroline start their tour this week in Toronto and to celebrate they've shared this cover of Claire Rousay's "Peak Chroma." Say the band: "claire rousay’s work has been a source of inspiration for us over the past two years. Recording this version of ‘peak chroma’ has been a way to explore our shared obsession with the incidental and improvisatory. The first half is a collage of improvisations performed in our studio (with saxophone by our friend Nathan Pigott) and the second half was recorded over a very hot three days in August when we stayed in Casper’s grandad’s house in Sussex. He had died recently and the house was almost completely empty. The home is perched right on the edge of the sea and we swam every morning.”

CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS - "RIEN DIRE"

Christine says new song "ried dire" is "a conversation of love that carries on even if you don’t see the person or hear the person anymore. True love is a conversation that is never interrupted. And by never I mean not even by death. That’s my current faith I have right now. That song is a conversation I have with someone that’s not there anymore. We can’t be without each other, which can be annoying because I’m a very timid person." The song is from new album Redcar les adorables étoiles that's out November 11.

JOYERIA - "9 TO 5"

Isn't it funny that some people don't need to work?" Joyeria notes in this wry track that has him musing about work over a motoroik beat as he gets increasingly exasperated. "9 to five, nine to 5, 9 to 5, 9-5, nine to five. I smoke to get out of the work, but my boss started keeping track of how many smoke breaks I take. I was once fired on Christmas eve for taking too many from a furniture factory. I didn’t even smoke much, it was just their way of getting rid of me." The song is from Joyeria's debut EP that will be out October 14 via Speedy Wunderground.

ALICE BOWMAN - "WHERE TO PUT THE PAIN"

"Where to Put the Pain" is a hypnotic track set to a skittering drumbeat. “This song is about dealing with difficult emotions and worries and different kinds of pain," Alice says. "In a world where a lot of things are feeling hopeless and bad things are happening it sometimes gets a bit overwhelming. Sometimes to the point of feeling numb. How do you find a balance in that?” New album The Space Between is out October 21.

DAVE ROWNTREE - "DEVIL'S ISLAND"

"I grew up in the UK in the 1970s and while there were definitely good points about the decade, I also remember how toxic it could be," says Blur drummer Dave Rowntree of his new single. "The country was deeply divided, and racism and misogyny were the norm. The economy was a basket case, and at one point we had to be bailed out by the IMF [International Monetary Fund]. However, listening to some people, you'd think it was a golden age to which we should yearn to return. This song is a note to self, to remind me how far we've come in 40 years." Dave's solo debut will be out January 23 via Cooking Vinyl.
