What the hell is up with this week?  That’s more music releases this week than there are days.   In fact so many that I had no clue who some of these folks were until I did some searching around.  Sure New York City Queens and the 71′s have been making some noise around town and others like Devil Killing Moth and Small Sounds bounce around the clubs all the time but other like Scooter Brown Band or Black Coffee?  OK.  Well nice to meet you all and nice to see so much stuff released. I have a lot of listening to do.
