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.

GLORILLA - "BLESSED"

Memphis rapper GloRilla has been on a swift rise since releasing her viral "FNF (Let's Go)" and followup single "Tomorrow," and now she's got another new track out in the world, "Blessed." This one's less of a party anthem and shows off a tougher side of GloRilla, and it's another great one.

SHYGIRL - "NIKE"

Experimental pop and rap artist Shygirl has shared another taste of Nymph, and it's a subdued yet raunchy dose of subwoofer-rattling art-rap.

MARINA ALLEN - "HALFWAY HOME"

"Halfway Home is my hype-man song," says Marina Allen of this lovely new song. "I wrote it for a friend I really believe in, who was stuck in their own thoughts.

EDITORS - "VIBE"

BEVERLY KILLS - "FANTASIA"

Swedish band Beverly Kills' debut album Kaleido is due out September 30 via Welfare Souds, and the latest single is "Fantasia," which they say "is about daydreaming catastrophic events. Crashing your car on the highway, walking out unscathed. Starting a fist fight with someone, and winning without a scratch on your hands."

CRACK CLOUD - "COSTLY ENGINEERED ILLUSION"

Vancouver collective Crack Cloud's latest single, as usual, comes with an ambitious, self-directed video. They say: "We spent a week in Trenčín, Slovakia, over the summer producing a theatre representation of the housing crisis in Western Canada. It was our first venture into live theatre; the process was spontaneous, disorienting, and new. Finding synergy with Silvia Sviteková and her dance company was an elevating experience, reinforcing our mutual love for creative improvisation. The video is primarily a compilation of B roll from our time there." Crack Cloud's second album, Tough Baby, is out September 16 via Meat Machine.

THE SOFT MOON - "MONSTER"

The Soft Moon have shared another new track from upcoming album Exister, along with a provocative music video. Says director Bryan M Ferguson, "The song to me evokes a real sense of underlining ache. I knew immediately that the video should be a metamorphosis, a person's body transforming into something hideous. It's definitely a literal visual interpretation of what the song is about but I really wanted the transformation from one physical shape to the other to be slow, painful and almost organic." Exister is out September 23 via Sacred Bones.

ROBYN HITCHCOCK - "THE RAGING MUSE"

"Songs come to me alive and flickering, fresh from the lake of my subconscious. I’m a compulsive writer," says Hitchcock of "The Raging Muse" from his upcoming album, Shufflemania! "'The Raging Muse' was written in Nashville in 2020. It began life as a sketchy home recording, just me and my old Telecaster - the same guitar I played on ELEMENT OF LIGHT back in 1986 - this time around faithfully engineered by Tubby and Ringo. Once I had the bones of the song, I sent it to my friend Davey Lane in Melbourne, who fleshed it out with spiky lead guitar, and then onto Charlie Francis in Cardiff, who added the melodramatic piano and bagpipes. The fish in the grass in this song are one of my many recurring dreams, I’m sure they’ll appear again soon." Shufflemania! features his former Soft Boys bandmates Kimberley Rew and Morris Windsor, as well as Johnny Marr, The Raconteurs' Brendan Benson, Sean Ono Lennon, Kelley Stoltz, and Dr Dog's Eric Slick, and is out October 21 via Tiny Ghost.

VR SEX - "SNAKE WATER" (LIVE VIDEO)

Gothy psych-punks VR Sex released their new LP Rough Dimension on Dais Records earlier this year, and now they've got an official live video for its song "Snake Water." It's a sensory overload of a video, which fits perfectly with the snarling song.
