decemberThe Drawing Down
Yes, we’ve arrived at 2016’s final destination, December.  It’s been a crazy year, one that many will be happy to forget.  But it’s also been a year of beauty, a year of companionship and a year of some very good music.  There are still a few more albums to go, while through the frost, January’s music beckons.  As our year-end features look back on the year that was, this page looks forward to albums as yet unreleased.  There’s always something good right around the corner.  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. May your next favorite album be found right here!
