It seems there was a lot of new music this week, including new releases from Snow Monster! , Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Lisa Loeb and Frances England. As well, we heard from Michael Hearst’s Songs for Ice Cream Trucks, an entire album of music written for use by ice cream trucks, and Rockabye Baby!‘s Lullaby Renditions of the Beach Boys. And, as if that weren’t enough, we heard a tiny bit of avant garde- because it’s good for us to try new things!
