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. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. 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.

RISE AGAINST - "TALKING TO OURSELVES"

Rise Against's new album Nowhere Generation arrives this Friday (6/4) via Loma Vista (pre-order the limited picture disc), and here's one more taste of anthemic punk from the LP ahead of the release.

LUMP (LAURA MARLING & MIKE LINDSAY) - "CLIMB EVERY WALL"

Lump, aka Laura Marling and Tunng's Mike Lindsay, will release their second album, Animal, on July 30 via Partisan/Chrysalis and they've just shared this woozy, appealing new single. Say Laura, “I’d watched a film called ‘The Pervert's Guide to Ideology’ about how ideology is woven into Hollywood cinema, and there was a bit about how in Communist countries they cut out the song 'Climb Every Mountain' from the ‘Sound of Music’ because it’s too much of a personal, individualistic ideology, so that’s where I got the title.” Lindsay adds, “I spent hours trying to find a bassline that would work. It was a real headache. Then when I got it, I just loved it and I made my girlfriend come downstairs and dance in the room for about an hour.”

A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS - "I MIGHT HAVE"

NYC's A Place to Bury Strangers will release the Hologram EP on July 16 via their own Dedstrange label and they've just shared a second track from it. “‘I Might Have’ is about the insecurities of life and growing up and when you just have to turn around and say ‘F*ck it,’” says frontman Oliver Ackermann. “Life sucks so we may as well have a good time.” It's a ripper and the video embodies the "might as well have a good time" spirit.

DRUG STORE ROMEOS - "SECRET PLAN"

Pinned somewhere between bedroom pop and shoegaze (and calling on the styles of bands such as Stereolab and Broadcast, among others), Drug Store Romeos' new single paints an ethereal vision of adolescence, of secrets between best friends and late night conversations concealed beneath the sheet-roof of a makeshift pillow fort.
