MarchFarewell White, Hello Pink!
The long winter is almost over, including the coldest February for many in the United States since the Great Depression.  This year, more than ever, we’re ready for spring.  No more slipping on ice.  No more cancelled plans.  Soon it will be time to walk, run, drive, play ball and enjoy the great outdoors all over again.  While we’re doing this, the music listed below will be vying for the opportunity to become part of our spring soundtrack.

At this point, everybody’s eager to hear the new Godspeed You! Black Emperor album.  For soundclips, you’ll have to visit the Constellation page or our article here.  But of course most of you have already done that; our site’s first home page press release was also one of our month’s most-viewed features.  We were overjoyed to see that people were still checking out some of our earlier features in February, including ACL 2014: The Top 20 Albums of the Year and The 25 Best Winter Albums of All Time.  The two-part return of Electronic Observations was also well-received, along with reviews of the new albums from Kreng and Ricardo Donoso.

Great music continues to pour into our office on a daily basis.  We’ll never be able to review all of it, 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 Soundcloud or Bandcamp page on which it appears.

This page is constantly updated as publicists, labels and artists send us information.  Thank you to all of our readers, artists and labels, and best wishes for a happy spring!
