NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 24, 2016

"Ain't" beating Drake, but still a strong competitor.

“Ain’t” beating Drake… or will it?

Worried about the “Brexit” situation overseas? Well, regardless of the result, we’ll “Remain” giving you the top new releases every week. On with the show! Here are this week’s new albums and singles:

  • THE AVETT BROTHERS — True Sadness (iTunes)
    • In one of the lighter weeks of 2016 thus far, the North Carolina foursome is looking to score the highest new entry on next week’s list. “Ain’t No Man” is currently in the runner-up spot on the Triple A chart, while it’s approaching the top 30 on Alternative radio. A top five entry is pretty much a given, but just how high will it land? Stay tuned.
  • BROODS — Conscious (iTunes)
    • The New Zealand sibling duo is back with their second album and a new single, “Free”, which is this close to reaching a new career peak for them on the Alternative chart. Their last album cracked the top 50 two years ago, and this one is a likely top 30 contender (if not greater.)
