New Releases, Part One

What better way to celebrate the beginning of Spring than to share some new indie music releases, something I plan to do on a regular basis.  I have complete confidence that this list is not complete, and I apologize in advance to anyone I missed.  As a result, expect a part two to this list in the coming days.  If you are a musician that would like to have their releases included in future lists, you can email the details to
