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.

VANISHING TWIN - "THE LIFT"

London-based group Vanishing Twin will release new album Ookii Gekkou on October 15 via Fire and here's another otherworldly track from it.

"In the chorus the wind talks back, 'I’ll be your wings'."

PILLOW QUEENS - "RATS"

Dublin band Pillow Queens have signed to Royal Mountain Records, and shared a new studio version of a live staple, "Rats." "Lyrically, the song deals with a moment of madness brought about by a mundane life where you have resigned your creativity and drive," guitarist Pamela Connolly writes. "The song flashes through a work-work-drink repeat existence and delves into feelings of low self esteem and apathy. The screaming chorus, while spouting similar themes, boils over with frustration and recklessness that threatens to topple its own meagre existence."

ANA ROXANNE - "OLD (NEW) SONG" (BEVERLY GLENN-COPELAND COVER)

Beverly Glenn-Copeland's work and artistry have been a huge inspiration for me: very beautiful music that took it's time to blossom into the world. I am honored to be a part of this compilation with so many artists I admire.” Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined is out in December.
