Happy Easter! Or Happy 420, if that is your thing. Whether you are listening to this while getting high on sugar or some other substance (or both), we have four new albums this week that you should find (overall) more enjoyable than last week’s selections.  We did! For good measure, we have a live review of a tour that you probably should have gone too.  If you missed it, you are SOL now, but I am sure you’ll be able to see the bands again soon.
