Do you ever get confused or surprised about who’s releasing new music?

We at Listening Through The Lens do.  Our inboxes are pretty full of new release notices, coming thick and fast from publicists, record labels and even the god-bless-them artists.  The holiday period was quite, but now everyone is back and intent on getting the word out asap.  Hard to keep track for sure.  We have found a few sources that provide a list of new releases regularly but they tend towards more commercial fare, or ignore music genre completely or totally miss the point on quality.  Too much filter work for us all.  Who wants to know about Mantovani’s Greatest Hits On The Xylophone?  Okay, we made that bit up, but the point is moot.

So, here we go.  Below is our first, humble attempt to capture a close-to-comprehensive-as-we-can compendium of new releases.  Starting from January 26, 2018 we have manged to get over 50 albums that are in the pipeline or about to hit record stores or the internet, wherever you care to shop.

We are keeping it simple to start with – showing album cover, artist, title and release date, with the last category in chronological order for your viewing ease.  Where we have written more detail about a particular collection or have reviewed it prior to its public issue, you can click on the album title and you will be magically transported to the relevant article.

If we can manage it, we will update regularly, hopefully each week.

A few rules though (isn’t there always!) – listings should roughly fall into the roots music category (as widely defined as you like) and only full collections – we do not want to clog up this space with EPs and singles.

With each update we are going to include a header image from our own Jim Jacob.  The picture may have something to do with the new material, or just chosen at random.  In the latter case, they will be mostly ones we haven’t used before from our vast live music image archive.  The first is Caitlin Canty taken at AmericanaFest 2015 in Nashville.
