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.

TIM BURGESS (THE CHARLATANS) - "SURE ENOUGH"

The Charlatans' Tim Burgess has shared another song from his forthcoming solo album, Typical Music.

"I really enjoyed the video Callum made for 'Laurie' from I Love the New Sky," says Burgess. "So when I finished Typical Music [the album], I sent him the 22 tracks and he picked 'Sure Enough' as a track he’d love to work on and as we had it earmarked for a single it just felt like the right thing to do." Typical Music is out September 23 via Bella Union.
