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, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

THE WEEKND - "AFTER HOURS"

WYE OAK - "WALK SOFT"

Wye Oak begin their JOIN tour, which features them performing with an expanded lineup, in March, and they've been sharing some new singles leading up to its launch. The latest, "Walk Soft," picks up, lyrically, right where "Fear of Heights" left off. "When I was younger, I used to work at a stable taking care of horses," Jenn Wasner says. "I thought they were the most beautiful animals on earth, and seemingly so gentle, so it took me a while to learn that they could also be dangerous, if only because they were so much bigger than I was. Love is like this, too—the bigger it feels, the more power it holds. True beauty should be frightening."
