Midweek Mixtape | 135 Songs To Keep You Ahead Of The Curve (Side 1)

359

And they’re off! Now that summer is pretty much history, the music biz is back. And it has hit the ground running — I got more than 100 new album announcements between yesterday and today. Some are welcome news (like three — yes, three! — new albums from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard next month). Others are … not (don’t Chad Kroeger and Nickleback have enough money already?). But there’s one thing almost all those announcements have in common: A new single or video. That accounts for most of the 135 songs, clips, cover tunes, remixes and unearthed classics to dig through today. As for the rest: They’re here because I searched the online nooks and crannies to find you the shiznit you can’t get anywhere else. Hey, somebody’s gotta keep you ahead of the curve. Today’s Tinnitist-approved cuts are tagged with an 👁. Don’t look now:
