August 6, 2017 Drop Box Notes


I know that you all thought that I had abandoned you in your time of need. I have not. It only feels like a long time (Woah… a Bad Company reference. Very old school.) For the record, the last Dop Box Notes published was on June 22. See it is not really as long a gap as you thought.

As we approach the final turn in the year 2017, the list returns with the most interesting Tales From The Drop Box worthy albums and releases of this year – as of today!  I have spent quite a bit of time culling the list to essentials only, so if you don’t yet own these releases, or haven’t heard of them, then you should definitely seek them out. If you are listening to the podcast (and you should because, in my less than humble opinion, it is the best freakin’ music podcast ever), then you already know that a bunch of these releases are available on Bandcamp. In the podcast, I have, for every track, also pointed out the various record companies for each release. Finally, if you are a vinyl lover, like me, then you should check out bullmoose.com, midheaven.com, or turntablelab.com for the more mainstream of these releases.

There is so much awesome stuff that I have broken the “list” into 5 parts. I will post a new part every two weeks so you can catch up. Don’t delay!
