  1. Did they change the release date for Ben Lee’s new album? For some reason Amazon says it’s being released in April.

  2. Very possible. We go by the Largehearted Boy list and sometimes the release dates change. I’ll keep it up there anyway. Close enough.

  3. This month for me was all about Faunts, Alela Diane, and Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Those three towered above pretty much everything else I heard.
