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.

SQUID - "AMERICA!" (BILL CALLAHAN COVER)

Squid's first U.S. tour starts next week and in celebration they've shared this cover of Bill Calahan's "America!" Say the band: “Earlier in the year we went to Otterhead Studios in the midlands to do some recording as we emerged from lockdown 2.0. We decided to cover some of our favourite tunes and one of them was ‘America!’ by Bill Callahan. We didn’t think that this cover would see the light of day, but we wanted to release something special just in time for us heading over to tour the USA.”

BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD - "BREAD SONG"

Black Country, New Road have shared another song from their upcoming album Ants From Up There. “We wanted to do the first chorus with no time signature," says frontman Isaac Wood of the very pretty "Bread Song." "I went to see Steve Reich do Music for 18 Musicians and there's a piece where a bar length is determined by the breadth of the clarinet player, they just play until they run out of breath. I wanted to try that with the whole band, where we don't look at each other, we don't make too many cues, we just try and play without time - but together.”

CLAIRE CRONIN - "FEEL THIS"

The lastest single from Bloodless, the new single from Claire Cronin, is "Feel This," a spare, somber track with gorgeous, haunting harmonies. "This is the most vulnerable song on the record," Claire says. "It’s about longing to transcend myself and get out of my body. I’m reflecting on my intimate relationships in the context of this desire to self-vacate, and acknowledging that I can’t float away and be a spirit. I have to stay here and feel different moods wash through me. I’m also thinking of myself as one of many people who want to transcend their bodies, numb out, or feel limitless — like when the lyrics mention the 'gold, guns, and Vicodin' of America. The repetition of 'feel this' in the chorus is an instruction to myself, where each 'this' is a different feeling I have to stay with."

STEVE GUNN - "DUST FILLED ROOM" (BILL FAY COVER)

"Bill Fay’s music was a revelation to me when I first discovered it," says Steve Gunn. "The commanding power of his words; the modest, universal language of his sorrow.

It was a real honor to record one of my favorites of his, 'Dust Filled Room.'" This will be on a 7" out in January celebrating the first-ever vinyl release of Bill Fay's Still Some Light.
