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.

FRED AGAIN.. - "KAMMY (LIKE I DO)"

Electronic musician Fred again.. has shared another taste of Actual Life 3, and this one's a catchy, dancefloor-moving track powered by a sample of UK singer KAMILLE.

MIDWIFE - "SICKWORLD"

Midwife, aka New Mexico-based artist Madeline Johnston, is back with this gorgeous new song as part of Hardly Art's Singles Series. Johnston builds skyscrapers with ethereal layer on top of ethereal layer, from atmospheric guitarwork to her breathy vocals. Says Madeline: “I started collecting globes. Sickworld was written in late 2021, during a long, cold winter. The world is sick. I'm coming down with it. I wanted to relate the unrest and ailments experienced externally with the general malaise I had been feeling emotionally for a long time. The lyrics are a culmination of festering thoughts I was carrying around, and digestible pieces of larger ideas like faith, sobriety, and death. It is also largely about being homesick for another time. Timesick. But this is being homesick for a place you can never return to, because it doesn't exist. The world is sick, it needs medicine. This song is about healing.”

JAPANESE BREAKFAST - "THE STORY" (BRANDI CARLILE COVER)

Japanese Breakfast covered Brandi Carlile for a new The North Face ad campaign. "It was a joy to take on the iconic ballad," Michelle Zauner said. "I think the song captures the depths of human tenacity and the spirit of the journey so well. We wanted to keep our rendition sparse and acoustic. A beautiful string arrangement written by Craig Hendrix and performed by our violinist, Molly Germer, and Quartet 121 soars in to sweep you up to the mountains."

S.C.A.B. - "WHY DO I DREAM OF YOU"

"'Why Do I Dream Of You' deals with infatuation with a partner that you know is ultimately bad for you," says S.C.A.B.'s Sean Camargo. "Living in New York City, it was easy to find metaphors to go with this particular situation. Just like my surroundings, this relationship was beautiful in many ways but also decaying and nasty. 'Green beams of steel whose coat decays and chips away at me' reflects feeling powerless and struggling to come to terms with the negatives, but holding on to the idealization of us together, which was often manifested in dreams I experienced." S.C.A.B.'s new self-titled album is out November 11 via Grind Select.

TOO MUCH JOY - “FORTUNE TELLING'S EASY”

H.C. MCENTIRE - "SOFT CROOK"

Ahead of her tour dates supporting Bob Mould, H.C. McEntire shared a new single, the country fried "Soft Crook," via Merge. "'Soft Crook' was an exercise in vulnerability and trust," she says. "At its narrative core, the lyrics expose my struggle with depression through an unfiltered lens—calling it what it is, shaking hands with it, unapologetically honoring the power of its grip. It’s a mysterious and unpredictable companion that can make walking this world feel like slogging through unforgiving fields of mud. Navigating the nuances of pandemic isolation while under a debilitating depression fog was the most alone I have ever felt. To embody grief honestly, to embrace its clumsy and unhinged corners—to survive—required efforts and elixirs of self-preservation. The chorus became an anthem, of sorts; a mantra for letting go of guilt in needing these things—whether medication or TV shows or other vices—to offer myself some grace."

--

LESSER EVIL - "HAZE"

Montreal groovy psych duo Lesser Evil are gearing up to release their debut album and here's one last early taste. The duo say "Haze " as "has overt psychedelic vibes and a doom metal backbone. Unleash the dragon!”

--

WINTER - "SUNDAY"

Winter says her dreamy new song, "Sunday," is about social media toxicity, a subject that is "always on my mind and generates a lot of fear and anxiety for me. It's a critique on social media’s effect on mental health and contorted beauty standards for women.” Winter's new album What Kind of Blue Are You? is out next week.

--

DAN MANGAN - "ALL ROADS"

Dan Mangan's new album Being Somewhere is due out October 28 via Arts & Crafts, and the latest sigle is "All Roads." "It’s absurd and beautiful how much consideration and yearning we place into a life so fleeting,” he says. “In a billion years, it’s all just space dust. No John Lennon, no Oprah. Relativity is infinite, and we are infinitesimal. And yet, in the here and now, how could anything matter more? This song is about being emancipated by the beautiful humility of littleness."

KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD - "IRON LUNG"

King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard release Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava -- their first of three albums out this month -- this Friday, and just ahead of that they've shared the video for "Iron Lung." This is a real psychedelic excursion, working in jazzy grooves and heavy workouts, not to mention lots of flutes, across nearly 10 minutes. It comes with an appropriately psychedelic music video, directed by SPOD, that features continuously morphing animation. They may have out-mushroomed Bjork with this.
