New Music (3/24/10)

Currently listening to: Fever Ray - "When I Grow Up"

Thank you everyone for hanging tight as we get the blog updated with it's new look. How about that new banner? It's not exactly "new", but it is longer than the previous one. How about sourcing our pictures, adding bigger pictures, sticking fewer labels on posts, and jotting down what we're listening to at the moment? Just something new, we'll see how it works. I've been a big advocate of Blogspot-bashing and I'll continue to do so just because it's so primitive and restricting. However, and here's the kicker, it's free, so we'll deal with it. World keeps on spinning.

We've got about five weeks remaining until we get into one of the most anticipated months of the year, music-wise. It's May. Here's a list of notable NMTM favorites that will be releasing albums in the month of May.
  • Band Of Horses
  • Broken Social Scene
  • Josh Ritter
  • Minus The Bear
  • The Black Keys
  • The Fall
  • The Hold Steady
  • The National
  • The New Pornographers
  • Tokyo Police Club
  • and maybe ... Arcade Fire? Radiohead? Who knows...
And if you can't wait until May, you don't have to worry about going insane or being a pirate to hear new material from some of the artists listed above. There's been some new music leaked this week on the blogs that have paid staff members. Here's what we've gathered. Enjoy the fresh tunes:
