hello JulySummer Music Preview
There’s no stopping summer now.  The blockbuster movies are opening, the beaches are filling up, the grass is demanding to be mowed, and we’re looking for some new music to accompany our activities.  Fortunately there’s plenty of it on the way: great picks in every category that we cover, from Deaf Center to the return of Talons.  New music is added to this page on a near-daily basis, so keep coming back to catch up on all the latest previews!

Our most-viewed feature in June was our report on In the Garden of Sonic Delights, and our most popular reviews covered albums by Erik Skodvin, Shivers, Olan Mill & Keung Mandelbrot and Francisco Lopez.  Thank you to all of our labels, artists and readers for your continued support!  And now, here’s what’s coming up this summer: dozens of new album tracks for your listening pleasure!
