August 24 Music Releases

Hello JFP Music Bloggers! First, I offer my apologies for being remiss in posting releases for last week. To be honest, last week was a bit "off" in terms of the quality and quantity of offerings. Listed below are new music releases for August 24- and just in time for the new school year. There are many good releases available this week, so add a few to your wish list and go visit your local retailer. I have underlined those which may be of particular interest. Release information is culled from Billboard Magazine, Pitchfork, Brainwashed and Delusions of Adequacy.

Compiled and sorted by Alex Slawson
