New. Release. Tuesday.

What a weekend. If you were here for Rising Appalachia's excellent Saturday performance and/or Lori McKenna's Sunday afternoon set, well, you know. If not, then a wag of the finger is in order, as both were fantastic. We'll have photos up on this here blog sooner rather than later, but first, new releases...

Another nice batch of stuff hitting our shelves this week. There are more than a few great ones coming, but we'd like to point your attention toward Erykah Badu (pictured above) and one particular song from her new album, New Amerykah, PT. 1: 4th World War. The song is called "Honey," and we love it because 1) it's an irresistibly catchy jam and 2) it features an independent record store where Miss Badu sings through album covers from the likes of De La Soul, The Beatles and many more. Have a watch, why don't you (list of new release artists below the video)?
