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.

FRUIT BATS - "AS I RISE" (DECEMBERISTS COVER)

Part of Kill Rock Stars' 30th anniversary covers series, Fruit Bats have taken on this Decemberists track. "The Decemberists honored me with a cover of one of my songs a few years back," says Eric D Johnson, "so when I was asked to choose a KRS band to cover, the choice was clear. I’ve always loved this song - it’s always felt to me like some sort of string band hymn reinterpreted into a Exile-era Stones track. My idea was to re-reinterpret it back into some kind of hyper traditional form. This song feels forever to me."

The latest episode of Sounds of Saving and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's "Song that Found Me At The Right Time" series features Cassandra Jenkins, who performs a rendition of Eartheater's "Faith Consuming Hope." "Music has always been a primary way for me to connect my mind and body, before I was ever consciously thinking about how important that connection is for my mental health," she says. "At the most basic level, music is a conversation between those two aspects of our experience, and when I'm performing, that dialogue includes everyone around me. More and more, when it comes to my mental health, singing is one of the most powerful tools I have to engage my nervous system in a way that harnesses a sense of safety in my body, which in turn allows me to move through my emotions and the world more freely. And the more I can hold that space for myself, the more I'm inviting other people around me to do the same."
