Spring Music PreviewSpring Music Preview!
Warmer weather is finally here, along with April showers and an avalanche of new music.  This page continues to be updated on a near-daily basis; whenever we hear about upcoming music, it ends up here.  If you like the samples below, we hope you’ll click on the preview boxes to learn more!

To no one’s surprise, our most-viewed article of March was our Spring Music Preview, followed by the latest installments of the ACL Singles Chart and Electronic Observations.  In a strange turn of events, our most-viewed review for March was Hammock’s Oblivion Hymns, which was published last November but continues to pile up the hits.  This was followed closely by Origamibiro’s Odham’s Standard.  Thank you to all of our readers, writers, artists and labels for your continued support!

And now, here’s what’s coming up next: our Spring Music Preview, filled with over 75 new album tracks for your listening pleasure!
