Over the last few weeks, I’ve had the chance to listen to several of the albums on today’s list of new releases, and I can tell you for certain, this is a seriously solid batch. I’ve been listening to the new Alabama Shakes release on a daily basis since I got my greedy little hands on it (you can check out Chelsea’s review of the album later today), and Dead Sara’s debut may be my favorite rock album to emerge out of LA this year. Check out our list of notable releases below, and be sure to let me know in the comments what you’re excited to listen to today!
