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.

100 GECS - "MEMEME"

Hyperpop trailblazers 100 gecs are gearing up for their upcoming album 10000 gecs, and it'll include this new single which finds them channeling anthemic emo-pop and upbeat ska through a modern hyperpop lens.

THE CRIBS - "SUCKED SWEET"

The Cribs' Sonic Blew singles series continues with this terrific track that was from the sessions of last year's Night Network. "'Sucked Sweet' was originally supposed to be the 13th track on that album - we always really loved it, but we ended up having to cut it right at the last minute cos of vinyl running times," says the band. "We always felt kinda guilty about that, cos this song is one of the earliest Night Network tracks, and ditching it felt like cutting an old friend from the guest list or something...Anyway, we are really happy that people get to hear it now, and that it has grown to become a single in its own right. A real Cinderella story, if you will."

TED LEO & JEPPESON AIRPLANE – “INTO THE CONQUERING SUN”

Ackerman plays drums on it and Sue Werner from War On Women plays bass. "It grabbed me because I truly care about these things," Ted says, "and it felt right that after all these years, in the process of revisiting these toxic streams that come together to make this flaming flood of contemporary American history, I could work with someone alongside whose journey my own has ridden for the past few decades, with this particular part of the history looming so large in the work that we’ve done." Proceeds from Bandcamp sales go to Jane’s Due Process and the Frontera Fund.

MAXWELL STERN (SIGNALS MIDWEST, TIMESHARES) / GORDON M. PHILLIPS (DOWNHAUL) - YOU ARE WITH ME EP

Maxwell Stern (Signals Midwest, Timeshares) and Gordon M. Phillips (Downhaul) have released a four-song split, where they play and sing on each other's songs with help from Ian Farmer (Modern Baseball) on bass and Adam Beck (Sincere Engineer) on drums, plus Mike "Slo-Mo" Brenner contributing pedal steel to the especially gorgeous "Older."

URGE OVERKILL - “A NECESSARY EVIL”

Nash Kato and Eddie 'King' Roeser are gearing up to release Oui, their first Urge Overkill album in over a decade, in January and they've just released this new single that finds them still in riffy, cool form. Says King Roeser: "How do you deal with someone whose mind is made up? How do you oppose myopia in all its forms? To me, the downbeat in the central riff represents solid, factual NECESSARY facts. The EVIL, the interesting, unpredictable, formless yearning energy behind everything emerges in the upstroke via syncopation. That’s how you play with how much swing you want to hear in your groove. The theme is the poetic duality between the known and unknown. Oui, the song may be catchy, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some Nietzsche level shit in there. It’s just a 'Necessary Evil'?"

ALEX THE ASTRONAUT - "GROWING UP"

Australian musician and songwriter Alex the Astronaut released her debut album, The Theory of Absolutely Nothing, last year, and she's now followed it with an upbeat new single, "Growing Up." "Writing music had become stressful, so I started going to the beach and snorkelling around with the fish," she says. "One afternoon I was snorkelling and thinking about my questions and my friends, and it came to me that it's just like the handbook idea. That, at some point, everyone is kicked in the head with the realisation that there is no handbook and no answers - we're all in this without training wheels and we just have to keep swimming together. That’s what ‘Growing Up’ is about. When I got home, I sat down on my floor -- where I write all my songs -- and wrote the whole song in less than a day."

--
