the Buzz for July 1st, 2008


July 4th week is traditionally one in which the music bidness kills all the lights and hangs the gone fishin’ sign on the door, so imagine my surprise to find there’s actually a tiny li’l bit of life in the industry here at the top of the month. None of the following are exactly what you’d call earth-shattering releases, but if you absolutely need your shopping fix (not that I would know anything at all about that concept!), you might find one or more of these new albums worth checking out.
