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…

THROWING MUSES - "BO DIDDLEY BRIDGE"

Kristin Hersh's band Throwing Muses release new album Sun Racket on September 4 and the new single from it is riffy rocker "Bo Diddly Bridge." There's no Bo Diddley beat here, but Hersh explains the themes: “My little boy, Bo, used to fish off Bo Diddley Bridge down the street before it collapsed, around the time our life collapsed. But we lived; we swam in a life sunshine somehow. And both bridges - the Bo Diddley one and the life one - were rebuilt around us.”

SPUN OUT (EX NE-HI) - "ANOTHER HOUSE"

Chicago band Spun Out, which features ex member of NE-HI, will release their debut album, Touch The Sound, out August 21st via Shuga Records and the band’s Spun Out Productions label. The record was produced by Destroyer collaborator Josh Wells and you can get a taste of their groovy, psychedelic sound via first single "Another House." Says James Weir, "‘Another House’ is a musical boiling pot of a band break up, a search for a new artistic voice, mixed with imaginative studio exploration. We all know there are much bigger and more important things to discuss right now, but if this video and this song can transport you into a positive headspace, then the music has achieved its goal.”

JESSY LANZA - "ANYONE AROUND"

Jessy Lanza's new album All The Time is due out later this month, on July 24, via Hyperdub, and the latest single is the hypnotic, bubbly "Anyone Around."

Thank you to all of the amazing contributors who made this video possible! [After the move] I became absorbed in the world of online music production tutorials and message boards. Of course the feeling of isolation has taken on new meaning recently, as it’s become a new normal for people around the world."
