2009 Second Quarter Music Preview

on March 30, 2009, 2:00pm

Once past piss-your-co-worker off-with-some-half-hearted-prank-day, aka April Fools, and those showers that supposedly bring May flowers, the month of April does have some redeeming qualities, like the fact it marks the start of the music industry’s second quarter. And with a new quarter comes new releases, and a bounty of them. So many in fact, that the job of even remembering what will be hitting the “new music section” in the coming weeks and months is a pretty daunting task. Fortunately, Consequence of Sound once again has your back. Below, you’ll find an extensive and up-to-date listing of all this quarter’s new music, spanning all genres, styles, and tastes.

Bookmark this page and check back often, as we’ll continue to update this throughout the quarter. And if you’ve seen anything we’ve missed, drop us a comment and let us know.
