Noteworthy Songs Released in 2012 So Far

Good Old War

I know it’s only the beginning of April, but a ton of great music has already been released this year and is well worth blogging about.  Philly has been hoppin’ with CD release shows left and right.  Ingrid Michaelson released Human Again at the end of the January and performed at World Cafe Live in support of it.  Good Old War dropped Come Back as Rain just a few weeks ago and will play Union Transfer on April 27th.  Carsie Blanton’s Idiot Heart hit shelves in January, and she will play at the Tin Angel this Friday April 6th.  A lot of artists have created some amazing songs so far this year, but these are a few that speak the loudest to me.
