Yes, it’s cold outside, which makes this the perfect time to stock up on indoor music.  Fortunately, we’ve got a great batch of sounds upcoming in 2017, samples of which are included below.  In fact, there’s so much good music coming that this is the only way we know to keep track of it all!  We update this page nearly every day with new and exciting announcements.  So put the log on the fire and the brandy in the decanter, and settle in: these are the sounds that will keep you warm.

We’re only able to review a fraction of what we receive, so this page is our way to help our readers to preview as much upcoming music as possible, all in one place.  Happy 2017, everyone ~ may your next favorite album be found right here!
