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.

"I don't know if the song represents that at all but the song is just where I'm at with shit. I think I fully lost my ability to care about shit I don't care about and it’s truly beautiful. I guess I'm really infatuated with the chaoticness that comes with the idea of tomorrow."
