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.

SHANNON & THE CLAMS - “ALL MY CRYIN’”

From their upcoming album Year Of The Spider, Shannon & The Clams dabble in disco on their new single “All My Cryin’.” The video, directed by Ryan Daniel Browne, twists expectations that might have you wincing before it reveals what's really going on. Well done.

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA - "THAT LIFE"

"I saw this painting by Hieronymus Bosch called The Garden of Earthly Delights and in the painting there was a mixture of crazy stuff going on, representing heaven, earth, and hell," says UMO's Ruban Nielson. "When I was writing this song, 'That Life,' I was imaging the same kind of 'Where's Waldo' (or 'Where's Wally' as we call it in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK) of contrasting scenes and multiple characters all engaged in that same perverse mixture of luxury, reverie, damnation, in the landscape of America. Somewhere on holiday under a vengeful sun." The video is pretty cute featuring a puppet designed by Laura Manns (The Muppets) and very clever, camouflaged execution.
