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.

FOREIGN HANDS - "TEARING DOWN YOUR REALITY"

Foreign Hands are one of the most exciting bands in melodic metalcore right now, and this killer new single is a very good example of why. It follows recent single "Chlorine Tears," which Foreign Hands also just paired with as the Lucid Noise EP.

OLD FIRE - "WINDOW WITHOUT A WORLD" FT JULIA HOLTER

"I randomly recorded a vocal sample off Julia Holter’s song ‘World' and had it laying around my hard drive for a while," says Old Fire's John Mark Lapham of the seeds of this cinematic collab with Julia Holter. "Some time after, I sampled some sounds from 'Don’t You Go' and started re-arranging them (most Old Fire ideas begin this way). It struck me quite randomly that Julia’s vocal would fit nicely on top of this arrangement, and amazingly, it fit perfectly like they were written for each other. I had pursued her initially for a collaboration but the timing was always off. When this track came together, I knew this would in some sense be our ‘collaboration.' I was really happy to have her beautiful voice appear on the album. I originally had programmed a lot of the woodwind parts to appear on the instrumental closer ‘Circles,' then transposed them in an arrangement for 'Don’t You Go,' then finally moved them over to this track. The way all the parts fit so well together felt serendipitous. My good friend David (DM) Stith provided some vocoder vocal textures for the end." Old Fire's new album Voids is out November 4 via Western Vinyl and also features contributions from Bill Callahan, Loma's Emily Cross and Adam Torres, and more.

TEGAN AND SARA - "SMOKING WEED ALONE"

Ahead of the release of Tegan and Sara's new album Crybaby on Friday, they've shared a final advance single, propulsive alt-pop track "Smoking Weed Alone." "With this album, I wanted there to be a dialogue that we could have about the songs," Sara says. "Some of Tegan’s songs became almost like duets, because she allowed me to go in there and challenge her to rewrite lyrics. I wanted a narrative that could tie into our relationship and some of the things that were happening in our life, even if the song wasn't about that. And for ‘Smoking Weed Alone,’ there’s a chorus where we’re sort of singing to each other, and we haven’t done that before, in our career."

BREANNA BARBARA - "WEANING"

"I think life in general requires us to wean off of certain relationships, starting with our own mother and all the way up to past versions of ourselves," Breanna Barbara says of this new song from her upcoming album Nothin' But Time where she delivers a powerhouse vocal. "For me the recording captures the intensity and pain that comes with really grieving those relationships."

RÖYKSOPP - 'FEEL IT' FT. MAURISSA ROSE

Here's another track from Röyksopp third volume of their Profound Mysteries series. “Profound Mysteries is - among many things - an esoteric tribute to some of the genres and time periods that has forged Röyksopp.” the band write. “‘Feel It’ is (specifically) a nod to the danceable, eclectic blend of musical styles, which originated on the Ibiza club scene in the mid 80s and early 90s, commonly referred to as Balearic beats. The track itself is a house-influenced Italo-dub, blending genres in a ‘if it works, it works’ aesthetic. An approach that’s always been very dear to us.”

OKAY KAYA - "INSIDE OF A PLUM"

The latest single from Okay Kaya's new album SAP is "Inside of a Plum," which she says was inspired by ketamine therapy. "The doctor said ketamine treatment could interrupt behavioral patterns by growing new literal physical branches in your brain, providing cognitive flexibility," she says. “My doctor described the brain as a snow globe and the treatment as a fresh layer of snow enabling new slopes. Mood-riding."

BASS DRUM OF DEATH - "FIND IT"

Garage rock trio Bass Drum of Death are back and will release new album Say I Won't in January and the band have shared another track from it. "'Find It' is kind of a cynical look at where I was in my life living in New York at the time," says the band's John Barrett. "Way too much partying, to where I realized it was my problem, not necessarily where I lived. I also wanted to do something different with the structure of the song, I’ve always loved the idea of starting with a chorus but have never done it until “Find It.”

JOHN CALE - "THE STORY OF BLOOD" FT WEYES BLOOD

“I’d been listening to Weyes Blood’s latest record and remembered Natalie’s puritanical vocals," John Cale says. "I thought if I could get her to come and sing with me on the ‘Swing your soul’ section, and a few other harmonies, it would be beautiful. What I got from her was something else! Once I understood the versatility in her voice, it was as if I’d written the song with her in mind all along." Cale's new album Mercy also features Animal Collective, Sylvan Esso, Laurel Halo and more.

GLEN HANSARD - "TAKE HEART" FT MARKÉTA IRGLOVA

While Glen Hansard was on the road earlier this year he saw footage of Patti Smith performing in Brooklyn, saying "People, take heart. Things will get better, and if they don’t - we’ll make them better!" At the same time, the war in Ukraine had started -- his neighbors in Ireland had taken in refugee families -- and, inspired by Patti's words, he wrote a new song, "Take Heart." It features his Swell Season partner, Markéta Irglová, as well as backing vocals by three Ukrainian refugees, Anna, Alex and Olena, who helped with some of the lyrics.
