New Music Monthly: November & December 2018 Releases

It's the fourth quarter of the business year for the record labels and pretty much the end of the road as far as new releases go. The labels are emptying their archives this month, though, with rejuvenated old releases finding a new audience from Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Big Brother & the Holding Company (with Janis Joplin), Lee Michaels, Metallica, and more! There's a smattering of "new music" to be had from folks like Dead Can Dance, Marianne Faithful, Tenacious D, Muse, J. Mascis, and the Tangent and for psych-rock fans, ATO is reissuing the first (indie) albums by Aussie rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. Enjoy!

If we wrote about it here on the site, there will be a link to it in the album title; if you want an album, hit the 'Buy!' link to get it from's just that damn easy! Your purchase puts money in the Reverend's pocket that he'll use to buy more music to write about in a never-ending loop of rock 'n' roll ecstasy!
