SpringLate Spring Music Preview
The announcements keep coming in!  With high profile releases from Osmotic + Fennesz, Petrels, William Basinski and more, the spring of 2015 promises to be enthralling.  Even Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) has released an instrumental album this season!

Our most popular April posts were reviews of albums by Takaakira “Taka” Goto, Michael Price, Oiseaux-Tempête, SOL and William Ryan Smith, and the latest (EP) installment of Electronic Observations.  Overall, the Submissions page received the most attention, followed by this page!

Great music pours into our office on a daily basis.  We’ll never be able to review it all, so we hope that you will peruse the list below to hear your new favorites before they come out.  If you like something, be sure to click on the sample to be led to the site on which it appears.  This page is constantly updated as publicists, labels and artists send us announcements.  Thank you to all of our readers, artists and labels, and best wishes for a happy spring!
