A Lovely Time of Year

Spring has definitely arrived. Not only has spring brought back fantastic weather and baseball with, it has also brought some new tunes to groove to. What a wonderful time to be a person who loves music. There is so much good, new music coming out these days. I can't really remember a time span like this where every week there are at least a couple new albums that drop that are just fantastic. 2010 is kicking some serious ass on the music scene.

So I have had some people asking me about new music dropping of late. Some of these tunes have been out for quite a while in 2010 and some are so fresh, you didn't even know they were out yet. I am playing catch-up on posting new music since being out of the country, so these are some new 'guys' I have been listening to over the semester. It's not been easy keeping up with it while I've been away, but luckily I have had some help from reliable sources.

While I love a good mix just as much as the next guy, I find nothing more fulfilling than listening to an artist's complete work in an album. So if you like any of what you hear below, I encourage you to check out the rest of these artists' work and consider buying their full-lengths or at least something more from them. With that said, here is a little mix to get you through the upcoming days and into the beginning of the warm summer months.

This is by far the biggest mix I have ever put together on this blog. Then again, this is by far the most amount of good music that has come out in a short period while this blog has existed. It has the bigger guys and the little guys, trying to make a name for themselves. Some really great tunes come from the smaller bands, so don't ride them off. Hopefully you can find something you like here. If nothing else, you can't bitch about not having anything to listen to. If you hear someone who does bitch about it, send them the link to this page. Enjoy.
