Currently Listening

I am so far behind on reviews but there are a slew of great new records that have come out this year.  Some recent excellent new releases include Makes Good Choices by The 1984 Draft (which I did review), Daytime / Nighttime by Fresh, Proto Retro by Dot Dash, Seatbelts for Aeroplanes by Brand New Friend, and All In by Down By Law.  On top of that though, Aree & the Pure Heart, Swingin' Utters, and Mercy Union have all dropped great new tracks in preparation for upcoming releases.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

A lot of times I simply can't keep up with everything that's coming out.  One of the ways that I try to make up for my lack of reviews is with these Currently Listening playlists.  All of these records and artists are worth checking out and I highly recommend that you do so.
