Kyle & Kyle get you up to speed: 50 albums to spin this summer

As the semester dwindles down, stress levels rise throughout these last weeks’ most likely due to procrastination, projects or finals week worries. There’s no reason we can’t offer you a list of albums that we think you’ll enjoy and might help you relax. It’s time to turn off the radio, unless of course it’s WTTU, and spin some new tunes. Good music slips through the cracks far too often these days, so take notice of some artists that don’t quite reach commercial success. Here’s a list of 50 recent albums, in no particular order, by artists which we hope you’ll become acquainted with over the summer. You can obtain these albums online or in local record stores everywhere. So good luck to you all in these last few weeks, have a wonderful summer and get out there and support good music.
