A bit late, but here it is. Listen to this music, and cancel your trip to Florida.
Midwife – Forever
Genre: Dream Pop
Commentary: It’s sad and slow, like we all feel
Chelsea Williams – Beautiful and Strange
Genre: Traditional Country
Commentary: Potentially the best traditional country album so far of the year
Jess Williamson – Sorceress
Commentary: Introspective and quiet, except for the euro-pop numbers
Firewind – Firewind
Genre: Power Metal
Commentary: Basically this is whatever the metal equivalent of dad-rock is. It is pretty awesome.
Tenci – My Heart is an Open Field
Genre: Chamber Folk
Commentary: This is a remarkable sound for a North American artist. Strong British Isles folk overtones, but distinct sensibilities. Really great.
Weapons of Tomorrow – Warbringer

The Sword – Conquest of Kingdoms
Genre: Doom/Stoner Metal
Commentary: Live cuts, B-sides, rarities, from the best of the best
