First Listen: New Releases for November 25

Artist: Summit Point.
Album: Vulnerable
Quick Thoughts: Loud and noisy in all the right ways, Summit Point. gives a really fuzzy and buzzy alt-rock effort reminiscent both of the mid-1990s and more recent acts like Charly Bliss and Daddy Issues. I loved this album, a late-year favorite in a year packed with winner after winner, but this deserves some of your time. It's absolutely the right album right now.
Songs of Note: "Change," "Settle," "Victim Blaming," "Reproach," "Memorial"

Artist: Tom Jenkins
Album: It Comes in the Morning, It Hangs in the Evening Sky
Quick Thoughts: Tom Jenkins is a solid singer-songwriter who puts out a pandemic-era record that doesn't feel like one, with beautiful and bright songs and a nice feel to it. In a busy week, I would recommend to anyone, but it's kind of the perfect album for the moment and I'm glad to get back to it. Great especially for fans of Travis.

  1. How i did a background check on my business associates via the help of a CYBER GENIE. I discovered I was doing business with some Malaysian fraudulent cartel after doing an external background check with the help of << CYBERGENIE@cyberservices.com >> that would have cost me millions of US Dollars. He was able to hack their email and that's were I discovered I was about to be scammed.
