The most average releases of June 2011

Post Author:

June's always fun… if you're MTV. Here’s to the month where the majors dump crappy albums that contain somewhere, inside, their summer hits, like cubic zirconiums buried in big hard turds. Which begs the question: why are labels eating cubic zirconiums, and not more fiber?

Joining their ranks were a healthy spread of indie generics, available wherever you shop for vanilla.
