octoberOh No, October!
Where has the time gone?  Once again, we’ve entered the year’s final season.  Items from every holiday are in the shoppes, from costumes to candy canes.  It’s all one big blur.  But let’s not let it pass so quickly.  Enjoy these liminal days, which veer to each direction.  So light the candles; let the radiators clank at night.  Here’s your soundtrack for October.

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 right around the corner!
