Upcoming Releases – Spring 2016

We’re already 2 months into 2016. That means the weather will finally start getting warmer here in Vermont, aside from the occasional March snowstorm. It also means a whole bunch of new music as the release schedule picks up, and this spring is no exception.

Upcoming Releases – February 2016

We’re already through the first month in 2016! Now it’s February and it’s been a very warm winter here in Burlington. It’s really strange to have all the snow melting on the first day of February, but I don’t mind. Anyway, this month is full of great new releases that I will be playing on Squawkin’ Good Radio in the next couple months and writing more about on this page. We have new albums this month from Captured Tracks favorites DIIV and Wild Nothing, old favorites like Dr. Dog and Animal Collective, and newer artists I’m excited about like Sunflower Bean and Pinkshinyultrablast. This is what’s coming your way in February:

February 5

DIIV – Is The Is Are (Captured Tracks)

Dr. Dog – The Psychedelic Swamp (Anti-)

Sunflower Bean – Human Ceremony (Fat Possum)
