Featured New Releases:

Matchbox Twenty – North

Just shy of a full decade since “More Than You Think You Are,” Matchbox Twenty sets the soundtrack for all of our lives once again with, “North.” Amidst Rob Thomas’ substantial rise as a solo artist and the start-and-stops of touring and album rumors, the band stitched itself back together and began a steady process of recording their 4th studio effort. Not straying too far from the sound that propelled them, the familiarity will most certainly strike a chord with the fans that grew up with them and reel in younger listeners who haven’t had the chance yet.

Imagine Dragons – Night Visions

In what is certain to be one of the marquee developing artist stories of the year, Imagine Dragons joins the ranks of bands like Fun. and The Lumineers as an undeniable “dark horse;” injecting themselves through commercial placement and relentless touring before we even knew what hit us. So far, this band seems to have the most longevity to them, already getting noticed for “Demons,” and kicking off the album release pointing to “Amsterdam,” another song rock fans are sure to gravitate towards while taking an interesting tone thanks to the production efforts of hip-hop legend Alex Da Kid.
