New Music You Need to Not Miss

After a casual facebook post asking “Has anyone local put any new music out in 2013?” yielded 10 responses in 10 minutes I realized that a lot of awesome songs were going unheard just because of a kind of invisibility.

It’s crazy that you can hear, and get sick of, a new Taylor Swift song within the course of a week, but meanwhile the guy around the block from you can put out great independent records for years and you might not have a clue. It is that kind of gap that I am trying to bridge by covering local music.

Without further ado here are 3 new releases from local artists you need to check out. And don’t worry—more installments are coming.
