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.

CAITLIN ROSE - "GETTING IT RIGHT" (ft. COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS)

We're two weeks away from the release of Caitlin Rose's first album in nine years, CAZIMI, and today brings new single "Getting It Right," an infectious alt-country song that finds Caitlin harmonizing with Courtney Marie Andrews. "Several years ago, I fell in love with Courtney’s first album," Caitlin said. "I had been doing co-writes for a while, but realized I needed to start focusing in on the writers and artists I really wanted to collaborate with. I wasn’t really being set up on things that were fulfilling that desire so I snuck into her DM’s and proposed a write whenever she was in town. Luckily she was already in town and we spent an extremely hot afternoon on the patio talking astrology and music and walking away with what I always thought of as a bit of a banger." A bit of a banger indeed!

GIRL SCOUT - "ALL THE TIME AND EVERYWHERE"

Stockholm-based band Girl Scout released their debut single in September, and now they've followed it with a second, breezy indie pop track "All The Time and Everywhere." "This song is about anxiety following you around like a stray dog," the band’s Emma Jansson says. "I wrote this during a period of my life when I was constantly feeling nervous, and being around people I didn’t know made me feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. The feeling turns into an extension of yourself that you wish you could sever it from your body. In the end I guess you’re forced to make peace with it and just deal with life sometimes being an uncomfortable thing."

LAURA VEIRS - "NEW ARMS (DEMO VERSION)"

Laura Veirs announced an expanded edition of her 2022 album Found Light, featuring demo versions of five tracks, and shared one of them, the demo of "New Arms." "This is a song about letting my guard down and staying open to the possibilities of love after experiencing heartbreak," Laura says. "I like the laid-back vibe of this demo. It has a natural-feeling performance that I sometimes struggle to capture in professional recording studios. I like the varied guitar colors at the end of the track, too. Some of the words in the bridge were adapted from a poem by my friend (and OR poet laureate) Anis Mojgani."
