So many artists, so many songs, 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.

BOTCH - "ONE TWENTY TWO"

Along with their reissue campaign, mathcore legends Botch have released their first new song in over 20 years! The song came together in the past couple years, as guitarist David Knudson explains here. The song will be included on the We Are The Romans reissue, which you can pre-order on vinyl.

PSYCHIC ILLS - “MIND DAZE”

Psychic Ills are releasing their 2012 Austin Psych Fest (now Levitation) performances as a live album on September 30 via The Reverberation Appreciation society. "The first thing that grabbed me when I listened to our 2012 performance at Austin Psych Fest is Tres declaring at the start of the recording ‘It’s good to be back in Texas’ because that simple sentiment captured everything we felt in that moment—the nostalgia and privilege of coming back to our home state for such an iconic festival." says Elizabeth Hart.

NICOLAS BOUGAÏEFF - "NAKED EYE"

Berlin-based, Canadian artist Nicolas Bougaïeff has announced new album Begin Within which will be out November 11 via Mute. “There's a few major themes with this album and honesty is one of them,” he says. “I went through years of physical and emotional masochism as a kind of immersive shock therapy to jolt me into understanding something. I lost myself to a degree and Begin Within was the beginning of a process of mental reconciliation and internal unity manifested in my art.”

WHITMER THOMAS - "MOST LIKELY"

“This song is about the constant shame I feel for my unshakable need to please everyone all the time,” says Whitmer Thomas of his new song. “I’ll probably never know why I regret everything I did in a room the moment I walk out of it. I’ve spent way too much trying to figure out what events in the past led to me having a bad personality in the present. In the end I guess it’s a song about not knowing who in gods hell I am.” The Older I Get The Funnier I Was, which was produced by Jay Som, will be out October 21 via Hardly Art.

--

PALM - "PARABLE LICKERS"

Palm have shared another song from their upcoming album Nicks and Grazes that's October 14 Via Saddle Creek. “‘Parable Lickers’ is the oldest one of the bunch,” says Palm drummer Hugo Stanley of this rather freaky track. “We were performing a version of this song live when we previously toured, but it didn’t finish itself until just before we went to the studio. It’s the only track on this record with MIDI guitar, which was kind of a hallmark of our previous album, Rock Island. The sample used is a recording of a drumline playing at the high school across the street from Eve and Kasra’s old house in Kensington, PA.”

FAUNESS - "MYSTERY"

London-based singer-songwriter Cora Gilroy-Ware announced her debut album as Fauness, The Golden Ass, due out October 28 via Cascine. The first single is the sparkling "Mystery," about which Fauness says, ""For a while I’ve been thinking about how the concept of 'Mystery' is obsolete. Transparency and complete exposure seem to possess the beguiling, coveted allure that mystery once had. The song is an elegy to the idea of mystery, and for the video I wanted to create an embodiment of the concept, a masked character who makes her way into the sea and disappears. I thought that there’s no one better to narrate Mystery’s passing than the maenad, a type of nymph from Greek mythology. Holding her tambourine and sacred staff, a thyrsus, the maenad describes Mystery’s departure from this world."

HOLLY HUMBERSTONE - "SCARLETT" (GARDEN VERSION)

Holly Humberstone has shared a new version of her 2021 single "Scarlett." "When I first started releasing music I wanted people to be able to see where I created the songs and where the stories had come from," she says. “My ‘Vanilla (Stairwell version)’ was created, filmed and recorded on my stairwell at home; the place that inspired the first EP. As things progress it's really important to me to keep allowing you into my world, so I've made a new version of ‘Scarlett’ - my (garden version). This is a special corner of where I live now, a place I spend time with my sisters and friends. Considering this song is about my best friend it just made sense to me to be in this spot. Touring my songs around the world this year has given them each a new life, and my love for them has grown in ways I couldn't imagine. ‘Scarlett’ was written about my best friend and a boy who wasn't treating her right. It crushed me to see her go through that shit, but it's been so amazing to watch people around the world relate to this song and scream the lyrics while standing next to their best friends. I hope you love the garden version of my fave song to sing live right now."
