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.

CHESTER WATSON - "MIRRORS"

Labyrinth of Stars are a death metal band with members of Lantlôs and Valborg, and their debut album Spectrum Xenomorph comes out on September 30 via Translation Loss. Its lead single is the totally nuts "Star Pervertor," which kind of sounds like a death metal interpretation of Voivod's sci-fi thrash. Hear it at Decibel.

FLORIST - "FEATHERS"

Ahead of the release of their new self-titled album later this month, Florist have shared a final advance single, gentle folk track "Feathers," which has a little country twang. "This song is a meditation on the cycles we follow all throughout our lives,” says Emily Sprague. “As individuals, as families, as humans. The motions we go through that stay the same just set in different scenes. The fears and the dreams that sculpt our journey through this experience of life on earth, and our continually shifting perspective along the way."

CRACK CLOUD - TOUGH BABY

"Our body of work has been largely informed by some of the darker chapters in our lives; we’ve taken a moment to examine beyond that in Tough Baby," say Vancouver collective Crack Cloud of their new single. "The potency of the imagination, the magic and mystery of our world and its history from an adolescent gaze. We wanted to fall in love with our craft again by recalling the mysticism of our youth." "Tough Baby" is the title track of Crack Cloud's second album (due 9/16 via Meat Machine), and shows a softer side of the band -- until it doesn't. Like all their videos, this one is definitely worth watching.
