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, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

KATHLEEN EDWARDS - "OPTIONS OPEN"

Singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards will release Total Freedom -- her first album in eight years -- on August 14 via Dualtone. She's spent the last six running a coffee shop in Ottawa. “I had no desire to write, no desire to play,” Kathleen says of her sabbatical. “It allowed me all the time and space I needed to even just enjoy listening to music again. There were so many times where, if I was thinking about my own writing or playing, my heart just wasn't in it.” With her heart back in it, she's just shared Total Freedom's first single, the shimmering, confident "Options Open."

Spice (aka Ceremony frontman Ross Farrar and drummer Jake Casarotti plus members of Sabertooth Zombie, No Sir, and Creative Adult) shared a second song off their upcoming self-titled debut, and compared to the light indie rock of "First Feeling," this one's more on the heavy shoegaze side.

BAD COP/BAD COP - "PURSUIT OF LIBERTY"

We named Bad Cop/Bad Cop's "Simple Girl" one of the best punk songs of April, and now here's the second taste of their upcoming album The Ride (due 6/19 via Fat Wreck Chords), "Pursuit of Liberty." It's another anthemic punk ripper, and it's got a powerful message too. It was written by bassist Linh Le, who says, "My family fled Saigon in 1975. They were given a chance. So, why isn't the same thing still happening for everyone fleeing their danger? How have we gone from 'The Land of the Free' to 'Build that Wall?'"

French Touch vet Sebastien Tellier will release his sixth album, Domesticated, on May 29. It's also his first in six years. He's just shared this gorgeous, mellow, nostalgic single. “It’s about being caught in the past, the old teenager I was,” he says. “It’s full of emotion, but also it’s like a caterpillar.

INTERNATIONAL TEACHERS OF POP - "FLOOD THE CLUB"

The album includes "I Stole Yer Plimsoles" (featuring Sleaford Mods' Jason Williamson) and here's the new single. "It’s a bit darker than our usual electro pop fare, the track envisions a dystopian world of clubbing that’s very clean, nightclubs with their sprinklers on all night, taps overflowing on to the dance floor," Adrian tells The Quietus. "I guess it’s accidentally quite topical ! It’ll be interesting to see how this all pans out, I, for one, like my clubs a little grimy. If I’ve not left a club with soil on my knees and a strangers dribble on my shirt, I’ve not been out!" Digital sales from this single will benefit independent venue The Trades Club in Hebden Bridge, UK.
