Happy new music release day to you! As I do every week, let me give you a rundown of artists that have new stuff out today. Look for full lengths, EPs or reissues from Alberta Cross, Baroness, Black Francis, Cosmo Jarvis, The Dust Engineers, Gatekeeper, Hot Panda, Icky Blossoms, JEFF the Brotherhood, Jimmy Cliff, John Maus, Matisyahu, The Mommyheads, Nas, Old Crow Medicine Show, Shawn Lee, Shout Out Out Out Out, Smashing Pumpkins, Stowaways, Susanna Hoffs, and The Very Best. I hope you find something you like amid all that. If not, there’s always Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, which comes with my personal recommendation. There’s also today’s Pick Your Poison, which has plenty of good songs for you to download. Don’t miss tracks from The Blank Tapes, Blonde Summer, Eternal Summers, Kyle Adem, Slam Donahue and The Spring Standards. In the Soundcloud section there’s streaming goodness from Francisco the Man, Houndstooth, Kendrick Lamar and Tall Ships.
