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.

LOTIC - "COME UNTO ME"

Lotic (aka J'Kerian Morgan) will follow 2018's Power (released on the now-defunct Tri Angle Records) with her new album Water, due out October 29 via her own new label Houndstooth. The first single is "Come Unto Me," an appealing dose of experimental, atmospheric pop.

XENO & OAKLANDER - POISON

Minimal wave duo Xeno & Oaklander are back with Vi/deo, their seventh album (and first in three years), on October 22 via Dais. The video for bouncy new single "Poison" definitely takes the album title to heart. "We were dying to make a horror film in the style of Suspiria, and we wanted it to look like a VHS tape from the video store," says singer Liz Wendelbo. "'Poison' has an Italo Disco feel to it and co-directing with Scott Kiernan felt like the perfect match."

PIP BLOM - "YOU DON'T WANT THIS"

Amsterdam’s Pip Blom have shared a new very catchy single from their upcoming album Welcome Break. The video for "You Don't Want This" is set in a lifesize dollhouse. Says director Sara Elzinga, ""When I first heard You Don't Want This, I recognized the feeling of self-consciousness; knowing that people have a certain way of looking at you, that does not necessarily comply with the image you have of yourself. The concept of a Matryoshka doll then stuck in my head, having these multiple versions of yourself that are hidden at first. The set reminds us of a dollhouse, of someone who is so comfortable in their own scenery, they forget to look at the world outside of the room. Though rather than making a music video about anxiety, I wanted the video to be about self-acceptance. Smiling back at yourself, instead of constantly criticizing which is something people tend to do."
