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.

MASTODON - "SICKLE AND PEACE"

Mastodon have shared the third single from their upcoming David Bottrill-produced double album Hushed and Grim, and this one's pretty different for them. It's a 6-minute song that starts out funky and proggy before transitioning into more familiar sludge territory. Get the album on black double vinyl or pick up the Revolver collector's bundle, which features the album on limited clear vinyl and other cool stuff.

HELADO NEGRO - "THERE MUST BE A SONG LIKE YOU"

Helado Negro's new album, Far In, is out Friday and here's one last preview before we get to hear the whole thing. Says Roberto Carlos Lange, "Who are you? All of our songs are so different. All of the experiences that we are, can there be a song like you? This song is a map of this exploration. Looking for melodies and rhythms that are you, day to day moment to moment, we are a different song." This is a gorgeous, groovy song.

DEERHOOF - “BE UNBARRED, O YE GATES OF HELL”

“Maya Angelou once said, ‘You can't plant onions and expect to harvest tomatoes,’ and that kind of sums up our philosophy on this record," say Deerhoof of their new album, Actually, You Can, which is out this week. "This song is a sort of cover of a Baroque opera aria by G F Handel (of Messiah fame). We wanted to pair our cartoon death metal version of that aria, about a jailbreaking angel kidnapping souls from Hell, with a video of dancing anticapitalist tomatoes.”

BEACH FOSSILS- "DOWN THE LINE (PIANO)"

Beach Fossils are gearing up to release The Other Side of Life: Piano Ballads which reworks their songs as moody jazz tracks. “I’ve regularly attempted to harness the feeling that I get while listening to jazz and pour it into my songs,” says frontman Dustin Payseur. “There’s always been an element of jazz in Beach Fossils; chords are rarely played, instead the instruments typically play single-notes that come together to create chords. I think a lot of that comes from listening to jazz trios and quartets, hearing the way that the instruments weave in and out of each other, leaving space for each other, instruments coming up front for a bit while others wait." Here's the album's version of "Down the Line" which was originally on their 2017 album Sommersault.

BEVERLY GLENN-COPELAND - "EVER NEW" (REWORKED BY BON IVER & FLOCK OF DIMES)

The songs of Beverly Glenn-Copeland's 1986 cult classic Keyboard Fantasies as being reworked for a new collection, Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined, due out 12/10 via Transgressive. The latest single from it is Bon Iver and Flock of Dimes (aka Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner) take on "Ever New." "It was an honor to work with Justin (and many other talented folks!) on this re-imagining of 'Ever New' for Transgressive’s Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined," Jenn says. "I’ll never forget the first time I heard Glenn’s version of this song—it instantly felt deeply familiar, strikingly beautiful, simple and pure. Over the years I have returned to it repeatedly in moments when I need to be soothed, and it always acts as an anchor amidst life’s uncertainties. 'Ever New' is a timeless classic, and it’s an honor to have played a small part in ensuring its continued appreciation by many generations to come."

TEEN DAZE - "SWIMMING"

Teen Daze (aka British Columbia producer Jamison Isaak) has signed to Cascine Records who will release his new album, Interior, on December 10. The album was mixed by Joel Ford and you can get a taste now via first single "Swimming." "This is one of the first songs I made for this record, some three years ago," Jamison says. "It benefited so much from Joel’s guidance. When I first sent him the original demos he said he could hear slivers of “early 2000s French house music”, even though I was hearing was colder, more modular-based synth sounds. Anyways, that note sent me down a rabbit hole which resulted in the record you’re hearing today, and Swimming is one of the songs that benefited most from that note. This track is truly meant for a dance floor. I’ve spent a lot of the last few years trying to craft “ambient music that you could dance to”, but this one is about as close as I get to a DJ tool."

--

NATION OF LANGUAGE - "THE GREY COMMUTE"

"In some ways ‘The Grey Commute’ is one of the more upbeat songs of the record," says Nation of Language's Ian Devaney of this bouncy, very catchy single. "But in truth it’s one that was born out of much more depressing stuff. As I was working on the lyrics I had a kind of fixation on terrible tax policies, our cultural addiction to meaningless consumption, and it all got swept together into this punchy, kind of fun track."

--

SWALLOW THE SUN - "ENEMY"

Finnish death-doomers Swallow The Sun have shared a new song off their upcoming album Moonflowers (get it on triple vinyl), and the band says, "Compared to the dark and mournful ‘Woven Into Sorrow’ – latest single release – ‘Enemy’ presents the heavier and more dramatic side of the album without seeming less sad and gloomy."

--

COMBO CHIMBITA - "BABALAWO"

"We debuted 'Babalawo' when we played with Sun Ra Arkestra and it's become a favorite song from our set," Combo Chimbita guitarist Niño Lento says. "It has some hints of trap, a bit of rock, but also carries influences from Haitian music and sounds. Carolina's lyrics are also important since they describe some of our first encounters with Regla de Ocha (often known as Santeria). These intimate moments of spiritual guidance are incredibly important to us as a band with decolonial aspirations." It's the fourth in a series of singles from the band telling an ongoing storey.

--

SELF ESTEEM - "YOU FOREVER"

Rebecca Taylor, formerly of Slow Club, is releasing her second album as Self Esteem, Prioritise Pleasure, on Friday, and the final advance single is "You Forever." "This song is about the bravery of being alone vs the bravery of taking a chance," Rebecca says. "Both very valid. I’m also just talking about me, my band, the people I found since going solo, how we’ve made this difference. I’ve done it all without a traditional ‘support network’ and found my own. I think that’s a life hack."

SIGNALS MIDWEST - "TOMMY TOOK A PICTURE"

Signals Midwest are back with a new song, and it's a fun, catchy, indie-punk ode to their photographer friend Tommy. They say, "Our friend Tommy Calderon has been shooting photos of our band for over a decade now. I spent a lot of time over the course of 2020 going through the archives and soaking in nostalgia, so I ended up sifting through a lot of images he's made over the years. I wanted to capture the energy I saw in those photos – what I felt when we first started playing together, and every day held the potential for discovery."

RICHARD DAWSON & CIRCLE - "METHUSELAH"

Richard Dawson and Circle have a collaborative album, Henki, on the way, due out November 26 via Weird World, and the latest single is the eight-and-a-half minute "Methuselah." It's accompanied by a video directed by Samuli Alapuranen, who says, "The trembling stasis presented in the aesthetics of the music video for Richard Dawson & Circle's song ‘Methuselah’ appropriates the subjective time frame of the world's oldest living organism, the bristlecone pine, translating that into a mould that better fits the human attention span. To illustrate time's relativity, the video imagines and visualizes human motion as captured by the compound eye of arthropods. The seemingly immobile human artefacts caught in an Escheresque conundrum of provocative directionlessness evokes a temporal illusion in which the fly-like speed of the viewer's visual senses reveals the fictional nature of our sensory perception. The flow of things is in essence static, rendering a stumble down the steps ominously immobile and virtually imperceptible. The visual choreography for the song was filmed in various locations, using the modern-day panopticon, the smartphone."
