I could start by saying something like, “summer is heating up,” but this is Florida, and it’s been hot as hell for awhile now. One of the season’s best perks, aside from breathtaking weather, is that there is an immense amount of excellent music to be heard over the course of the next few months. We hope to provide you with a brief little guide on all good things in the music world being released this summer. This list is tentative, as the music world is notoriously sporadic. Also, there are a number of albums that are TBA this summer, meaning they have no solid release date, so check back with those later.
