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.

STEFFLON DON & MS BANKS - "DIP"

JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ - "SWING"

“‘Swing’ is a song with (almost) only good vibes!” says José González. “It was musically inspired by high-life from West Africa and Caribbean music – layered light guitars and a melodic bass line on top of a beat from a drum machine app. It’s a song about dancing and following your natural impulses. It’s ok to move your butt whoever you are, wherever you are!” José's newlalbum Local Valley is out September 17 via Mute and the "Swing" video is very cool:

COLLEEN GREEN - "SOMEONE ELSE"

Colleen Green says her new single "Someone Else" is “about double standards within a relationship, and how they can go both ways," adding, "It’s about coming to terms with you how you actually feel about something and taking responsibility for how that affects you. It’s about taking back power in a one-sided relationship and not letting someone else dictate your happiness. It’s about choices and the act of making them.” Green's new album Cool will be out September 10 via Hardly Art.

PHILIP FROBOS (OMNI) - "VACANT STREET"

"Vacant Street" was the first song I wrote during the pandemic," says Omni's Philip Frobos of the new single from his upcoming solo debut. "The thought of an empty cafe table on a vacant street seemed disturbing and romantic. Sitting alone because company was forbidden, enjoying a coffee or a pastis and waiting for someone to let you know it was all over." Philip's upcoming album and book, both titled Vague Enough to Satisfy, will be out October 1.

ALICE LONGYU GAO – “KANPAI”

Alice Longyu Gao is back with another of her signature frothy, stylized, hyper-pop jams. "My best friend Madison Emiko Love and I wrote this song three years ago," says Alice. "Her grandma is a Japanese immigrant and we always want to champion & plug our culture everywhere we go. We’ve been waiting to put this song out, cuz back then no one with power in western music realized the power of Asian pop culture, no one really cared to put Asian talents on the table. The material world was asleep cuz they didn't see the money-benefits. 'Kanpai' means cheers in Chinese, Japanese and Korean; the joyful vibe translates perfectly throughout the song. The braggy-docious, rap-y bridge part in the song is what I wish for, it's not my reality yet. Last year was dark for me, and for everyone. But now it is time to regroup and restart, this song wakes me up in the morning, it reminds me that I came to this earth with a mission. I aspire to inspire and benefit other people’s lives. I do that through my art."

This is a reimagined version of Winona from an alternate reality, which is a fusion with influences from Congolese Rumba, indie pop and afro-beat."

HALF WAIF - "ORANGE BLOSSOMS (NNAMDÏ REMIX)"

Half Waif released a new album, Mythopoetics, in July, and now she's shared a new remix of one of its tracks, "Orange Blossoms," from Chicago artist Nnamdï. ""Nnamdi is, straight up, a legend," Nandi Rose says. "It is a deep honor that we share names that sound so similar, which is how he first came to my attention. But that's where our comparison ends, because he's just so in his own league. Brat is one of my favorite albums in recent years - there's nothing else that sounds like it. Unsurprisingly, the remix he did for 'Orange Blossoms' completely blew me away. His sonic choices are just not ones that I would make, which is what makes it so exciting. I love how he transformed the song into something totally new and badass and beautiful."
