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.

QUAVO - "WITHOUT YOU"

Quavo has shared a new song that pays tribute to his late Migos groupmate and nephew, Takeoff. It's a touching, personal, sentimental trap ballad.

THE CURE FOR PAIN (P.S.YOU'REDEAD) - FIRST TRY EP

Lilith Crimi from p.s.you'redead has a new band called The Cure For Pain that she says is "like that kinda post hardcore that’s close enough to indie/post-rock that pretentious art majors will still like it," and adds "ffo: Circa Survive, Colour Revolt, Bear Vs.

BLACK BELT EAGLE SCOUT - "NOBODY"

Black Belt Eagle Scout's new album The Land, The Water, The Sky, is out next month, and the latest single is the dreamy "Nobody." "When I was growing up, I didn’t have very many Native role models to look to on TV or the radio," Katherine Paul says. "It was within my own community that I found inspiring role models through our elders and our community leaders. With Native representation in music and television slowly growing, I often ask myself where I stand within representation in music and how I want to be seen. This song is about the relationship I have with my own representation in music.”

THE BAD ENDS FT BILL BERRY OF REM - "MILE MARKER 29"

The Bad Ends, the new group featuring Five Eight's Mike Mantione and REM drummer Bill Berry, have shared this new track from their upcoming debut album which was inspired by going camping to see a solar eclipse. “We were up in the Georgia mountains at a huge campground filled with Boy Scouts and their families to get the best view,” says Mantione. “The clouds came in, and you couldn’t see a damn thing. Dave (Domizi) and I were like, ‘Screw this.’ We grabbed our families, jumped in our minivans and began racing down back roads, following the sun. Watching the clock, I finally saw the blue sky just up ahead. We jumped out of our vans, looked up, and boom, it just happened. Of course, it was right at Mile Marker 24. I knew there was a song in there somehow. I couldn’t wait to play it for the band. It was lighting in a bottle to me. But Bill really didn’t hear it till I sat down and recorded a solo demo of it with nothing but me and an acoustic guitar. Bill had me sing ‘29’ because he thought it sounded better. He was right.”

HAMMOCK - “IT’S IN THIS LIE” & “IT’S OK TO BE AFRAID OF THE UNIVERSE”

We don’t want people sleeping to this one… it’s about waking up.”

LIELA MOSS - "COME AND FIND ME"

“The idea running throughout this track is that co-operation is natural, and competition is a construct," says Duke Spirit frontwoman Liela Moss of this new track from her upcoming solo album. Iʼm trying to be the bigger man, always seeing” ... Using empathy as the guide, we could neutralize the bad guys. My favorite lines are these: ‘This should be embodied dream space, should be free space, should be fair. That’s all’. I mean, that is all, right?! It's such a rhythmic track, and the synth arpeggios layer up in a way that adds electricity and force to the ideas in the song; resistance against obstacles to fairness.” Internal Working Model is out January 13 via Bella Union.

EYELIDS - "A COLOSSAL WASTE OF LIGHT"
