A regular feature highlighting some of the best album releases each month. I don’t do album “reviews” – this is simply a personal recommendation to check out an album - just a few words about the albums that appeal to me and about the artists releasing them. These will also be albums from which I’ll have been playing tracks on the Friday NI Rocks Shows recently. This month it includes albums from Wig Wam, Infinite & Divine, Khymera, Those Damn Crows, Gabrielle De Val, Robin McAuley, First Signal and Godsmack.
