Welcome to the rusted drain pipe drought runoff from summer. Where here in this lull the heavy hitters prepare their Fall season big album harvests while some folks jump the pre-Labor Day gun like web trollers claimings of 'firsts' in the comments section. This month finds the old guard sputtering the engines and newcomers bearing sounds and gifts that already sound obligatory to their respective imprints, handlers, reps, sponsors, and so on. But now we bring what we barely put up with this month.
