Happy first Tuesday of June! This week’s list of notable new album releases is a decidedly punk-heavy affair, but with a couple of female singer-songwriters, an indie rock act, and a Sinatra-inspired crooner thrown into the mix, you should be able to find something to like no matter your genre preference.

Check out the albums that have me excited below, and be sure to let me know in the comments if I’ve missed a great release this week.
