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.

CATE LE BON - "MODERATION"

Cate Le Bon says her new song "Moderation" is "a nod to the daily dilemma of trying to curb inherited and novel habits, when you want to eat the moon, and an essay written by the architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1958 that continues to kick hard.” The song, which is one of the poppiest she's ever released (while still being off-kilter) is off Cate's new album, Pompeii, that's out in February.

SPOON - "CHRISTMAS TIME (IS HERE AGAIN)" (BEATLES COVER)

Spoon have covered The Beatles' "Christmas Time (Is Here Again)," which was originally released as a Fan Club single in 1967. They don't mess with it too much. Says Britt Daniel, "Recording ‘Christmas Time Is Here Again’ was a group effort that pulled us away from rehearsals and sent us speeding down a path fueled by what you might call the Christmas spirit. And it’s our song with the most band members doing vocals ever - pretty sure you can count four. THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS IS OVER."

KEVIN MORBY – “SO FAR AWAY” (CAROLE KING COVER)

Amazon Music has just launched a covers series and here's Kevin Morby's contribution where he takes on Carole King's "So Far Away." Kevin says it's "been one of my favorite songs since childhood, as it’s one of my dad’s favorite songs. I chose it for that reason—but also for the irony of singing a song about being homesick after being stuck inside our homes for almost two years."

TALKER - "SUMMERLIN"

Los Angeles-based musician Celeste Taucher has released a new single as talker, "Summerlin," a melodic, emotive track, about which she says, "This was one of the fastest songs for me to write on the record. Five days after a difficult breakup, I ended up in my ex’s hometown of Summerlin. Somehow in multiple years of dating, I hadn’t been there before. Even though I had no memories of the place associated with him, everything reminded me of him. Every neighborhood I passed, I wondered if that had been where he grew up. Every restaurant or store, I wondered if he had been there. I was with my friend Lauren at the time, and as soon as we got back to LA, we wrote the song that night in less than an hour. I still have the voice memo from that night where I can’t get through the song without crying.”

ZANDER SCHLOSS (CIRCLE JERKS) - "I HAVE LOVED THE STORY OF MY LIFE" FT. BEDOUINE

“‘I Have Loved the Story of my Life’ is a song that I wrote about acquiring strength and gratitude in the face of all the hard lessons that I’ve had to learn in my life,” says Circle Jerks bassist Zander Schloss of this track which features Bedouine. “It’s very personal to me but ultimately the lyrics encompass things that we all have to endure. These things happen, we have no choice but to carry them with us and there are no take backs. It was not an easy subject to tackle and condense into four minutes and twenty five seconds. To quote a line from the film Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, ‘Dewey’s gotta think about his whole life before he sings this song’. As do I.” Zander's new album Songs About Songs is out in February.
