Bon Iver

August Vinyl

Summer is the slow time for new music releases and August saw a number of great new releases, with even more coming later this fall. Here’s some of the new releases I picked up on vinyl in August: Superchunk – I Hate Music: The alt rockers have been around since 1989(!) and I Hate Music is their tenth album. The album is short and sweet, clocking in at just over 37 minutes.
