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.

LANTLOS - "LICH"

Lantlos have shared the third single off their anticipated new album Wildhund, and it's another great example of their ability to blend melodic shoegaze with post-metal in unique ways. If you like that new Deafheaven song, make sure not to miss this.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM - "MOUNTAIN MAGICK"

If you want some post-black-metal that's still all about harsh shrieks and not about clean-sung shoegaze, the second single from Wolves In The Throne Room's upcoming Primordial Arcana should do the trick.

--

LAURA STEVENSON - "DON'T THINK ABOUT ME"

The latest single from Laura Stevenson's new self-titled album is "Don't Think About It," a compelling indie rock track about unrequited love.

--

DOS SANTOS - "A SHOT IN THE DARK"

Chicago's Dos Santos have released "A Shot In The Dark," a new single for local jazz (and more) label International Anthem, but this isn't jazz; it's inspired by traditional music from Central Mexico. "My go-to when I’m trying to imagine melodies is Huapango music," says multi-instrumentalist/singer/lyricist Alex Chavez. "It’s part of how I grew up, it’s music that’s important to me."

CAVS (MICHAEL CAVANAGH OF KING GIZZARD) - "FURY GONG"

--

PILE - "IDWTDTA" & "BUILD A FIRE"

“I’ve had the mentality from the outset of this project that we would have to write, release, and tour as much and as often as possible to gain traction and maintain momentum," says Pile founder Rick Maguire, "and while I haven’t shaken that outlook entirely, I’ve utilized the past year and change to reflect on what the decade prior has meant to me. I’ve mostly avoided looking back, but this past year seemed like as good a time as any to do that." New album Songs Known Together, Alone features new solo versions of older songs or in the case of these two songs, older tracks formed the basis for new songs. The album's out August 20 via Exploding in Sound.

SMOKE BELLOW - "FEE FEE"

Baltimore's Smoke Bellow will release new album Open for Business on September 17 via Trouble in Mind. Dig the first single: the creatively percussive and sly "Fee Fee."

--

DUCKS LTD. - "18 CIGARETTES"

Toronto’s Ducks Ltd. (fka Ducks Unlimited) will release new album Modern Fiction on October 1 via Carpark Records. If you like the jangly pop of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, you will probably find '18 Cigarettes" worth checking out. “The thing I came to love about the song after watching that performance over and over again is that it’s a song that kind of tells on itself,” says singer/guitarist Tom McGreevy. “It’s a really raw emotional expression from someone whose capacity to talk about their feelings is stunted and they’re cut up about it. ‘18 Cigarettes’ is kind of an attempt to do a different version of what that song does.”

--

CAREER WOMAN - "THE LITTLE DIPPER"

Career Woman, Los Angeles singer-songwriter Melody Caudill, follows recent single "Balcony" with another, "The Little Dipper," another deeply felt singer-songwriter track.

COLD BEAT - "SEE YOU AGAIN"

“I had spent many months toiling in the dirt, tending to my War Garden,” says Hannah Lew of Cold Beat's new single. “Working with the soil is so hopeful, but also morbid. I had to bury some bulbs instead of being able to be present for the burial of a close friend. It became almost fetishistic to bury seeds, like a physical way to be there without actually being able to be there.” New album War Garden is out in September.

--
