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 publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

WASHED OUT - "TIME TO WALK AWAY"

Back on Sub Pop, Ernest Greene is set to release new Washed Out album, Purple Noon, on August 7. First single "Time to Walk Away" is set to a dubby, tropical beat.

CARIBOU - "NEVER COME BACK" & "SISTER" (FLOATING POINTS REMIXES)

Floating Points has remixed two tracks off Caribou's recent album Suddenly. Says Dan Snaith: "At first Sam asked for the parts for 'Sister' – the most intimate and personal track off my album Suddenly – and reworked it using the voices of my mother and my sister that I sampled from an old cassette for my childhood – but having turned that into a hypnotic, meditative beautiful thing, he came back and asked for the parts for 'Never Come Back' and sent me a WhatsApp of him working on the track in his studio with the caption 'Bass drum Making my lights dim!' and turned in a certified banger of a remix."

FONTAINES DC - "TELEVISED MIND"

"This song is about the echo chamber, and how personality gets stripped away by surrounding approval," says Fontaines D.C. frontman Grian Chatten of the group's droney, groovy new single. "People’s opinions get reinforced by constant agreement, and we’re robbed of our ability to feel wrong. We’re never really given the education of our own fallibility. People feign these great beliefs in order to appear trendy, as opposed to independently arriving at their own thoughts." He adds that they were listening to "a lot of The Prodigy and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, specifically their song 'Open Heart Surgery.' I was interested in extrapolating those types of chord progressions and capturing this droning, hypnotic feel. That last line repeated over and over ['What ya call it'] is a buffer expression that people used here in Dublin. It’s sort of like 'umm' or 'well...' – it’s what people say when they’re distracted.” Fontaines DC's new album, A Hero's Death, is out July 31.

The song "is really about my fear of flying, but when I dug deeper, it was like, ‘ok is being scared of flying really a metaphor for other issues in my life?’," guitarist/vocalist Patrick Shannon told IDIOTEQ. "Then a “story” just grew out of that."

LA-via-Australia post-punks Death Bells are releasing their new album New Signs of Life on September 25 via Dais Records, and the title track is out now.

It's a very deliberate statement and sets the tone for what's to come musically from us."

COREY FLOOD - "HEAVEN OR"

Philly band Corey Flood will release their debut album, Hanging Garden, on September 4 via Fire Talk. First single is the grey-hued "Heaven Or." "This song touches on themes that ripple throughout the album, like getting stuck in cyclical thoughts and struggling to articulate emotions," says the band's Ivy Gray-Klein. "There was a period when I was disassociating a lot and just felt so numb and passive to everything happening around me. To try and counteract this I experimented with reckless choices just to try and feel something or 'wake myself up,' which was really at odds with my natural inclination towards caution. The refrain 'I know what I saw' is a sort of an internal monologue in the face of others' shifting narratives. It's an affirmation to myself that my experience is real, my knowledge can be trusted, I know what I saw."

DISQ - "I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE" (JEFF TWEEDY COVER)

Wisconsin's Disq shared a cover from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy's 2018 solo album WARM. "I’ve been a big Wilco fan for the past few years and picked up Jeff Tweedy’s album WARM after Brendan had played it in the car a few times- 'I Know What It’s Like' really stood out to me as a great pop/rock song that I could put my own spin on - the minimal structure of the original gave room for creative license," the band's Isaac deBroux-Slone said. "I sped up the original recording a decent amount so I’d have something to play along to and off I went. We decided it’d be fun to present the finished product as an interim release; post-Collector and pre-whatever's next. We always love throwing a fun cover or two in the set, and we're gearing up to learn this one as a band so we could play it on our Collector release tour, but we all know what happened to that. My hope is that somebody who is a fan of Disq or Wilco (or both, or neither) could find some comfort in our version of this song (I know I’ve found comfort in Mister Tweedy’s original)."
