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. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. 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.

JOHN ANDREWS & THE YAWNS - "TRY"

John Andrews (Woods, Hand Habits) releases his new album Cookbook soon and has just shared this laid-back third track from it. “I wrote “Try” back in 2017," John says. "It was written in my head while driving. I saved an acapella version of it into my voice memos and re-visited it when I was home, in-front of my piano. ‘Less is more’ was a big component while recording/arranging it. The song is about trying your best to be there for your homies.”

DEEPER - "4U" (NNAMDI REMIX)

Deeper are releasing a special two-disc edition of last year's Auto-Pain that features remixes of songs off the album by Working Men’s Club, Fire-Toolz, PVA, and Chicago pals NNAMDÏ. "Since Auto-Pain came out right as the pandemic was reaching a fever pitch, we’ve spent the last year trying to find ways to sustain the momentum that was just picking up as the whole world shut down," say the band. "The deluxe edition adds awesome interpretations of the songs from artists we really admire, as well as live recordings that showcase how the record is meant to be heard – in person and loud!" NNAMDÏ's remix of "4U" is both stripped down and amped up. The Deluxe Edition of Auto-Pain will be out September 3 via Fire Talk.

ROSTAM - "FROM THE BACK OF A CAB"

“From the Back of a Cab” is probably my favorite song that I’ve written," Rostam says of his new single. "It started with the 12/8 drums — something you find in Persian music and African music. I built the song around those drums over time, writing the piano part in my living room, the melodies and lyrics on foot walking in New York and Tokyo, on California’s highways, and on the flights and car trips between all those places." The video for it was shot in a cab and features tons of cameos, including Haim, Charli XCX, , Kaia Gerber, Seth Bogart, Remi Wolf, Bryce Willard Smithe, Samantha Urbani, Wallows, Ariel Rechtshaid and Nick Robinson.

He puts the kick drum way up front, and soulful backing vocals by Tina B of Rockers Revenge, and throws in some Peter Hook-style bass parts (played by current bassist Tom Chapman).

"You know when you hold a mirror up to a mirror and you get an infinite amount of reflections from every angle? That’s what ‘Nervous’ is about," Madi says. "It’s when you’re in a loop of looking at yourself from every vantage point until you’re caught up in your own tangled web of bullshit. It’s about catching yourself acting out your crazy and you’re finally self aware enough to see it, but you’re still out of your body enough and curious enough to watch yourself do it."
