AugustAlready August
Oh no, it can’t be!  Yes, that little shiver we feel at the end of a sweltering day is the sense of time slipping through our fingers.  Only a few more weeks, and we’ll be back at school and work.  Fortunately, there’s still plenty of time for vacations and fun: Europeans especially look forward to August, as refreshing as a drink by the white cliffs of Dover.

It’s been a tough summer for Planet Earth, with all the shootings, bombings and coups. But to quote the Desiderata, “with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.  Be cheerful.  Strive to be happy.”  We hope that the music we cover will serve as a small counterbalance to the world’s suffering.  Where there is creativity, there is life.

While we can’t review everything, we do try to list everything.  We hope you’ll peruse the scroll below to discover your next favorite album.  Be sure to return often, as this page is updated daily with all of the latest information.  May your month be filled with music and warmth, and may your next vacation always be near!
