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.

POP. 1280 - "NONCOMPLIANT"

NYC industrial post-punks Pop. 128 are back with new album Museum on the Horizon on September 24 via Profound Lore and here's the first track released from it, a minimal, harsh and catchy "Noncompliant." "Without getting too specific, 'Noncompliant' is about how helping never helps and oftentimes the systems that we use to support people are also the systems that control them," say the band. "Support in our society is contingent on people behaving a certain way, but people in need deserve to be able to live their lives as they see fit and still have a right to the things they need to survive. We limit how much we help people because we love the illusion that society is a meritocracy and if you are in need you must have done something wrong to end up there."

PIP BLOM - "IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUN"

Amsterdam’s Pip Blom have shared a second track from their upcoming Welcome Break. "When writing the tracks for the record I wanted there to be a song that didn’t have the structure of verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus 2x," says Pip. "It’s a common structure of course and I figured it could be cool to switch it up a bit. When the track starts it feels like it’s going to be a very sensitive, calm song. The verses capture the feeling of sadness, disappointment in yourself and someone else. But when the chorus starts the energy switches. It’s more angry, being fed up, wanting to change something, like there’s a tipping point. I really like how the track has these different parts that flow into each other. I can’t wait to play this track live and really give it our all when the final chorus hits." The chorus really is something.
