Album Releases- April 2013 / by E

       We are only a week into April and have already had some great album releases; The Band Perry released their sophomore album, Pioneer, on April 2nd with singles "Better Dig Two" and "DONE" already having broken into the top 25 (with the former reaching number one) on Billboard's Hot Country list, while Cold War Kids' Dear Miss Lonelyhearts leaves the average indie rock formula in lieu of their original sound that first made us fall for them, and The Dear Hunter's Migrant proves that this band (and songwriter Casey Crescenzo, especially) is only becoming more proficient at creating beautiful melodies that sync up with even better lyrics with each album they release. While each of these albums was more amazing than the last, there are plenty of album releases left to look forward to this month.

       All of these artists are so great that it's hard to decide which album I am most excited for; while Iron & Wine, Fall Out Boy, Frank Turner, and Phoenix always manage to give us great music, I am excited to see what The Veils, Folly & The Hunter, Young Galaxy, and Sharks have to offer as the bands continue to establish themselves and I really love the music and collaboration choices coming out of Snoop Lion's most recent work.
