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.

SYD - "RIGHT TRACK" (ft. SMINO)

Following "Fast Car" and "Missing Out" comes a third new Syd single. This one's fueled by acoustic guitar and upbeat drums in a '90s R&B way, and it comes with a verse from the great Midwest rapper Smino.

GONE TO COLOR - "SUICIDE" FT ANGUS ANDREW (LIARS)

Gone to Color release their guest-filled debut in October and they've just shared new track "Suicide" featuring Liars' Angus Andrew. “Many moons ago Tyler and Matt (GTC) sent me some instrumentals, one of which was titled 'Suicide,'" says Angus. "Tragically, as circumstance would have it, an old friend of mine had just taken their life, so the timing was intense. Despite grieving with very raw emotions, I tried to communicate the frustration I was feeling. The result is now indelibly linked and serves as a particularly personal monument to my dear friend.” The song is released today, September 10, with is World Suicide Prevention Day and all proceeds from the single will benefit The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

ANNIE – “SHE’S LIKE THE WIND” (PATRICK SWAYZE COVER)

Having recently released Dark Hearts, her first album in 11 years, Nowegian pop artist Annie is back with an EP titled Neon Nights. On it she covers JAMC's "Just Like Honey" as well as “She’s Like The Wind” -- Patrick Swayze's ballad from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. Giving the track a neon glow does wonders and while Swayze-heads may not agree, this is an improvement on the original.

UK metalcore band Employed To Serve have shared another rager off their upcoming album Conquering.

MOSES SUMNEY - "CAN'T BELIEVE IT" FT. SAM GENDEL

Moses Sumney has announced the launch of Tuntum, a label, production company, and creative agency based out of Asheville, NY. Tuntum's first release is Moses' new cover of T-Pain's "Can't Believe it," featuring saxophone player Sam Gendel. "When I moved to California at 16, T-Pain's 'Can't Believe It' was one of the first songs I heard on the radio," Moses says. "Sitting in a vast Wal-Mart parking lot, I wondered at how everything was bigger in America, and turned up the bass. I learned to associate T-Pain with newness, half because his music soundtracked a transitional point in my life, half because his sonic exploration was so fresh. Much like Suzanne Ciani, Herbie Hancock, and Laurie Anderson before him, T-Pain has remained an aesthetic beacon for me as I've explored the ever-thinning boundary between the human voice and technological augmentation of it. As I enter yet another life transition with my new label Tuntum, a tribute to T-Pain felt like the most fitting beginning of a new era."

"Danny Elfman is a living legend and I was thrilled to be asked to do a remix for him,” says Squarepusher. “I chose 'We Belong' partly because it's in E flat, which is a nice escape from guitar-friendly tonalities, and also because I was especially drawn to the vocal elements.
