Even More New Releases

Enough with the “surprise” albums … they’re not even surprises anymore. Prince, Willow Smith, Kid Cudi, Richie Hawtin, quite possibly Rihanna soon. “Exclusive to Tidal,” “Exclusive to Apple Music.” Does anyone know when, where and how to buy albums anymore?

But will keep plugging away. Again, we dig up “Even More New Releases” … new stuff (and reissues) that slipped through the cracks in the past few weeks.
