New Track Rundown

No, this is not an April Fools' joke; I am actually updating this blog. As usual, I bailed right as it was gaining momentum. I am also still running on a 56k modem and it takes me 24hrs to upload one song and if someone picks up the phone I have to start all over again. This time I actually had another excuse as I traveled halfway across the country to this year's South by Southwest festival and it was one hell of a treat. I should have some updates about the event posted over the weekend. Be patient, I will be posting day by day and I attended six days of nonstop music.

In the meantime, I present another New Track Rundown. I have scoured the internet to catch up with everything I had missed in March and compiled my favorite 40 tracks (35 songs, 5 videos). This list covers everything from extremely anticipated releases (TV on the Radio, Battles, Man Man, Okkervil River, Fucked Up) to artists I previously hadn't heard of (A Grave with No Name, Niteflights, Luke Rathborne, Angel Olsen, Tristen). Needless to say, there is quite a range of stuff to explore. Above is the cover for TV on the Radio's Nine Types of Light which is slated for release on April 12th. Go buy that shit when it comes out! It's good and they put on one hell of a show at SXSW. The music is below along with dates when you can catch the artists in the Boston area. Enjoy!
