New Tunes: Music Releases & Reissues

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

You know how it is... rockin' and rollin' and whatnot...

Below is this week's hearty list of new releases. Try to consume at least two servings of new music a week as part of balanced diet. Please send all thank-you notes, fruit baskets and cookie platters to the fine people at AllMusic for providing such wonderous data.
