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.

ALGIERS - "I CAN'T STAND IT!" (ft. SAMUEL T. HERRING & JAE MATTHEWS)

Algiers have been gearing up for their anticipated new album SHOOK, and every single has been very promising. This new one is no exception; it samples Lee Moses' 1971 song "What You Don’t Want Me To Be," it features Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring and Boy Harsher's Jae Matthews, and it's a powerful dose of psychedelic soul that Algiers vocalist Franklin James says is "about a devastating loss of someone I believed to be the love of my life which nearly ended in my suicide."

TANUKICHAN - "THIN AIR" FT. ENUMCLAW

Tanukichan, Hannah van Loon's collaborative project with Toro y Moi, release their new album, Gizmo, in March, and the latest single is the fuzzed out "Thin Air," which features Enumclaw's Aramis Johnson. "This song is about exes, some people that I really cared about but ultimately didn’t want to be with,” van Loon says. “The sadness I feel when I’m hurting someone, and missing them and knowing you won’t ever have that closeness again. It’s about how important they are and how much they’ve taught me, or helped me, but how I also know that people come and go. The chorus has a double meaning for me where I feel like I can’t prioritize relationships because I need to keep on focusing on myself. The other is feeling like I’m broken and keep ending up with the wrong people, and hurting them.”
