What New Music am I Dropping The Needle On Today

New Release TuesdayTuesdays have been traditionally seen as new music release day in the music industry. For the past few weeks I have been really getting into that old New Release Tuesday frame of mind as I explore new releases on Spotify. Some of the releases are brand new, some are reissues, some are just new to me.

Anyway here is what I am dropping the needle on for new music today.

Suzi Quatro, Kid Rock, Metric, Asia, Ryan Bingham, Coldplay, Sons of Anarchy.
