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.

RÖYKSOPP - "THIS TIME, THIS PLACE" FT BEKI MARI

Norwegian duo Röyksopp have shared another track from the their upcoming album Profound Mysteries. "This Time, This Place" is a high intensity banger featuring vocals by Beki Mari. “I could only describe working with Royksopp as an out of body experience,” says Mari. “My mind already had the trails of their music burnt-in; little pathways back to very specific memories and so being asked to sing for them filled me with an inimitable feeling. In Norway, in their studio, my voice spanned octaves I didn’t know I had; which was especially interesting as I was still learning how to fly. Working with Svein and Torbjørn was a divine blessing, something I shan’t ever forget.”

GIRLPOOL - "DRAGGING MY LIFE INTO A DREAM"

"I wrote ‘Dragging My Life Into a Dream’ after going out to a party," Avery Tucker says. "I had spent the last year confronting being on my own in a way I had been avoiding for a long time. Although I knew that I was growing and still needed to heal from past relationships, I missed feeling connected to somebody and inspired. This song is about romanticizing a past time and also longing for my heart to feel open and innocent again."

U.S. HIGHBALL - "DOUBLE DARE"

U.S. Highball hail from Glasgow and their sound is very much rooted in their home country's history of harmony-laden, jangly indie pop. They're releasing their third album, A Parkhead Cross of The Mind, on March 25 via Philly label Lame-O Records, and they say lead single "Double Dare" is "the one lockdown-ish song; kind of about being trapped inside and being desperate to get out and the paranoia that came from that. On a wider note, it’s also just about battling with one’s own mind and decision making; daring yourself to make a change whilst half of you is telling yourself not to."

About the latter, Chris Martin says, "I loved when it came out, and I still love love love it. This is the first time I think that we’ve really taken proper time to record a cover, because in my head I could hear a version of it quite different from the original, that hopefully just reinforces what a brilliant song it is. One way or another I hope that anyone listening will just think, 'Wow, Kid Cudi is amazing.'"

VUNDABAR - "LORE"

Vundabar frontman Brandon Hagen, vocalist/guitarist of Vundabar, says that "Lore" is "a walk through a bending mind. It's about the lineage of meaning, about how all these invisible threads of history, construct and memory (personal and collective) permeate everything around us and in many ways eclipse and obscure the moment. So much of life is made opaque by residuals of the past, so much of our thought exceeds our ability to understand a complicated and evermore complicating world and a history we live in but do not remember. Yet the brain stores that history and writes it into our DNA. It dictates the formation of our reality in ways that exceed our ability to consciously understand it. The song wonders where the line is drawn between the self and the world of ghosts that we navigate, it wonders how much of oneself is a mosaic of the past and how many of those disparate pieces can be placed to form a new image in the eye of the beholder."

TWÏNS - "TRANSCEND" & "OCEAN FLOWER"

TWÏNS, aka Berlin-based artist Miro Denck, is back with a new two-track single that touches of psychedelic '60s grooves and soundtrack music. "In my perception, 'Transcend' was born as a merger of kind of a Soul Jazz vibe and my love for that short song format and instrumentation you often find in Library Music. My friend Sid from The Orielles plays drums on this one, and I think that really gave it that certain rhythmic energy it needed which I wouldn’t have been capable of putting down myself." Fans of Stereolab and Matson take note: "Transcend" will be on TWÏNS' new album, The Human Jazz, that's out April 28 via Earth Libraries.

THE VACCINES - "THUNDER FEVER"

UK band The Vaccines are back with this very upbeat, danceable single. “‘Thunder Fever’ plays on the idea that falling in love can feel as powerful, intense and as sudden as something meteorological," says frontman Justin Young. "Something heaven sent. It feels out of this world. Pop music has always been obsessed with the other-worldly, and that’s how the best of it often looks and feels – it relies on hyperbole."
