names of orangeAutumn’s Final, Declarative Burst
Call them what you will: the colors are plentiful.  As the leaves go out in a blaze of glory, we think more of life than death.  The fall music palette is similar, awash in tones of melancholy and exaltation.  The moon has not yet taken its final turn around the earth.  There’s still time, marked by a new sense of urgency.  We never know when we will encounter the year’s last best day.  The warmth holds hardscrabble hands to the cliff.  And so we try to enjoy the day while it lasts, the music while it plays.  Our News page gathers handfuls of upcoming releases and puts 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, with new titles added nearly every day.  May your next favorite album be found right here!
