Selection of new releases for March – all suggested by our readers/followers!
Hand Habits – Placeholder (Saddle Creek / Milk! Records)
Meg Duffy grew up in a small town in Upstate New York and they cut their teeth as a session guitarist and touring member of Kevin Morby’s band. The Hand Habits project emerged after Meg moved to Los Angeles; it started as a private songwriting outlet but soon evolved into a fully-fledged band with Meg at the helm.
The name placeholder stems from Meg’s fascination with the undefinable. Their songs serve as openings — carved-out spaces waiting to be endowed with meaning.

Nonconnah – Dead Roses, Digged Up Zombies, Broken Pieces Of Diamonds, Live Cats (Ernest Jenning Record)
It’s the rare occasion where the husband-and-wife-as-musical-recording-duo makes sense, but Nonconnah chucks convention so freaking hard out the window you’d be forgiven for thinking actual shattered glass would rain down on the street below and injure some innocent passerby. It’s a metaphor, you know; Nonconnah didn’t ACTUALLY throw anything. It just seemed like they did. – Tiny Mix Tapes
Boyscott – Goose Bumps (Citrus City Records)
🍊🌲 doing a special cassette reissue of a real bandcamp gem 💎 ‘Goose Bumps’ by Boyscott! in honor of their upcoming tour 🌸
Kiwi jr – Football Money (Mint Records)
Bill Waters – Honey Hi (Forged Artifacts)
Bill Waters is back with his brand new ‘Honey Hi’ EP out 3/29! Forget about the snow…
WIP – WIPPED (Wormhole World)
Friday 1 March.
Debut EP available as a name-your-price download
Chris Forsyth – All Time Present (No Quarter Records)
A great guitar album. If you like the Byrds and Let’s Active, you’ll love it. The guitar playing shares a lot with Johnny Marr and Mitch Easter. A sort of miracle that such an album can be made today. – dkelvin via Bandcamp
Cheekface – Therapy Island (New Professor Music)
“therapy island” 🍕 the first cheekface album 🍕 march 20
Max Jaffe – Giant Beat (Ramp Local)
Max Jaffe, drummer/composer/vocalist of JOBS, releases his debut solo record, Giant Beat, with the evolution of the drum set in mind. Armed with a new tool called Sensory Percussion (for which Jaffe was a beta tester) developed specifically for a 21st-century drummer, Giant Beat can be looked at as a personal exploration of Jaffe’s relationship with dance music, jazz and experimental rock. The result is a collage of ambient meditations, improvised percussion outbursts, and experimental dance music.
