September has been a month of exciting new music releases. Here are a few of my favorites:
My friends Brandon and Anne, better known as My Name Is You, have released their second album, Home Now.
A couple of other friends from San Diego are a part of the community of musicians in The Tree Ring. This album marks the likely end of what has been a brilliantly hand-crafted music experience over the last several years and three albums.
And then there is Leonard Cohen, not a friend but a legend nonetheless. Hear his new album a week before it is released, via NPR First Listen (album will be unavailable after the release, so listen now!).
