glass beachSea Glass and Sound
Sometimes finding sea glass is like finding good music ~ one has to know where to look, and even then, an element of luck is involved.  But in a few remote locations, such as Glass Beach (pictured to the left), the glass is gathered together.  Some might say this takes the fun out of it.  Others might call it a bonanza.

Our News page is meant to be an aural reflection of Glass Beach.  On this page, we gather big handfuls of upcoming releases and put them all in one place for our readers to find.  We can’t review everything, but we can list as much as we receive.  There’s plenty to be excited about below, led by an especially healthy crop of June releases.  May your next favorite album be found right here!
