Finally – some upcoming releases!
Intriguing dreamy lo-fi act Starry-Eyed will release its second album, Sweet Night, on July 8.

Pop punkers GumX have been on a hiatus due to military service but since last summer they are back together and their third full album, Old, will be released on July 17. Their second album, Green Freakzilla was released in an English version after a year and it seems their international aspirations remain intact. Here’s an article from May
