Overwhelmed by New Music Tuesday (New Releases)

After a few semi-slow weeks of album releases, this tuesday is about to make up for it all. I wanted to share what a tuesday full of music for me looks like. This list took a long time because, yes, I did personally zing through ALL most of these releases. Some I spent more time with than others.

To make things easier for you, dear reader, I wanted to loosely throw out some genres in case you were searching for something in particular. I apologize in advance for incorrectly labeling anything, I hate using genres so I had to take some shots in the dark, hence all the "?". All of the links are from LargeHeartedBoy's super large list that gets published every week. The titles of the releases include a link to amazon where you can listen to/buy the album or songs (usually cheaper than on itunes). Good luck sorting through it all, I hope my narrowed down list helps you out on your musical adventures.

* denotes the fact that you absolutely should check out these bands and their kick-ass new tunes only because Jessica is really enjoying them at the moment.

Important Note: I got distracted halfway through the list. There really was too much good music yesterday. Yes, there really is such a thing. I am more than slightly embarrassed to post a partially completed list, but if I wait one more day it will be irrelevant. Maybe you can try doing your own research.

Listen: Fed Up, The Mistake
