Friday New Releases – February 24th

There is a lot of Rock albums out today and I am super excited and hope I can get through them all.  Frontiers Records normally does 4 albums every month but today they bring us 5 albums that could keep me very busy.  I have highlighted in Blue the ones I am most excited about.  I am sure there is something this week for everyone.

Friday New Releases – August 12th

Happy Friday!!  More new releases today, but sadly, I am not interested in anyone of these. Maybe ZZTop.  Justin Moore’s album title sums it up for me – ‘Kinda Don’t Care’.  What that means for me is it is a good week to catch up on all the releases that have come out over the last few weeks.  Hopefully there is something in here for you though.
