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.

ANGEL DU$T - "TRUCK SONGS"

Angel Du$t (members of Trapped Under Ice and Turnstile) have shared another track off their upcoming LP YAK: A Collection of Truck Songs, and this one's called "Truck Songs."

"'paint' is an emotional ballad, talking a lot about the relationship I had with drugs, and how they controlled the other relationships I had in my life," JJ says. "In the song I say 'how am I the bigger one, when I never took out my gun, and played along to all your games, but never really felt the same' which draws a lot from how my relationship with drugs was so one sided, how I never meant to play along to the game they put in front of me, but how it was almost impossible not to."

CIRCUIT DES YEUX - "VANISHING"

Musician and composer Haley Fohr's new album as Circuit Des Yeux, -io, is due out October 22, and the latest single is "Vanishing," a stirring, gorgeously orchestrated track about climate change. "'Vanishing' is an account of climate change and loss through the final stage of grief," Haley says. "In this video I embody our evolving consciousness toward Earth and its health by representing four characters. Lemonade Lady is the evasive optimist who is unwilling to acknowledge her changing surroundings. Prepared Weather Person is the anxious prepper; ready for the worst and isolated by fear. The Mortal Sufferer gets blown away in a field and serves as evidence that us corporeal beings are at the behest of our environment. And Worm Girl personifies the stoic reality that all things human undoubtedly decompose in time."
