As we near the end of summer, the weekly lists of new music releases seem to be growing. There are fourteen new albums from SXSW alumni artists alone – plenty to get you through to the weekend!

Today on SXSWfm, our New Music Tuesday highlights will include a couple new songs from J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), English folk-rockers Dry The River, and husband-wife folk duo Shovels & Rope. This has to be the best set of new releases this summer, so I don’t think we’ll be stopping at those three artists. Tune in throughout the week to hear more new music!
