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.

BLACK MATH HORSEMAN - "THE BOUGH"

RINA SAWAYAMA - "PHANTOM"

The latest single off Rina Sawayama's new album Hold The Girl is "Phantom." "I realized as an adult that I have spent my whole life pleasing other people and not realizing it — constantly pushing my boundaries and not realizing the difference between what I wanted to do and what other people wanted from me," Rina says. "Through the lyrics in the verse, I’m trying to tell this story, and then in the choruses I’m morning the loss of my real self."

SCOUT GILLETT - "SLOW DANCIN'"

Brooklyn's Scout Gillett releases her debut LP, no roof no floor, on October 28 via Capture Tracks, and she's shared a new single from it, "slow dancin'." "I wrote this ironically - taking a dig at the games of love," she says. "People too often play games. My take is: let's just cut to the chase. Originally, I had written this as a downtempo country song. During recording, Nick [Kinsey] and I agreed it could evolve to something different. He had the idea to make it ironically fast and pulsing, juxtaposed against the title itself - 'slow dancin’."

WHITNEY - “MEMORY” AND “COUNTY LINES"

Whitney have been releasing songs from their upcoming album SPARK in pairs, and here are the latest two. "The lyrics of ‘MEMORY’ illustrate someone processing and eventually accepting their fear of death,” say the band. “Halfway through writing the song our bandmate Will Miller sent along the chords for what would become the outro of the song without ever hearing ‘MEMORY.’ It was one of those harmonious moments where two separate ideas somehow fit together immediately. The final third speaking to the afterlife in a way we wouldn’t have been able to match with words.” Listen to that and "COUNTY LINES":

LOWERTOWN - "BUCKTOOTH"

Atlanta duo Lowertown are releasing their debut album, I Love To Lie, on October 21 via Dirty Hit, and they've shared a new single from it, "Bucktooth." "When we were in London recording the album, I was pretty homesick for America so I was listening to a lot of old country and folk music," the band's Olivia Osby says. “I was really into Johnny Cash’s At Folsom Prison album and wanted to write a cheeky, narrative song similar to ‘Cocaine Blues.’ A bucktooth cowboy with his crew of troublemaker bandits kept popping into my head. The song started as a silly story but ended up being thematically tied with some of the far-right extremism that was happening in America during the time Avsha and I were recording the project."

"We were just learning to play guitar. We’d learned off a PBS special called ‘Folk Guitar with Laura Weber’ – I’ve always regretted that I never wrote Laura Weber a fan letter, and sadly she has passed away, but she taught us a bunch of guitar chords, strums and very cool folk songs we had never heard before. Maggie gave me this set of lyrics and I wrote the music for it. Though we had never traveled beyond our New Jersey home we had a longing to go out West."
