2016 Fall and Winter New Music Releases
Despite having barely more than three months left in the 2016, our Fall and Winter 2016 New Music Releases roundup demonstrates that there are still plenty of great new albums and reissues to spend your money on before the year concludes.
Of course, the holiday shopping season is always the home for many of each year's biggest releases, resulting this year in new albums from beloved acts such as the Pixies, Beck, the Pretenders and Ryan Adams.
They will be joined on record store shelves by the now-obligatory multi-format reissue campaigns for some of alternative rock's biggest acts and most famous albums, such as R.E.M.'s hit 1991 Out of Time and that same year's "Pearl Jam plus Soundgarden" supergroup session Temple of the Dog.
Green Day will also make their eagerly awaited return to the scene, eschewing concept albums and trilogies for a straight-ahead, single-disc album entitled Revolution Radio. Ween (and Moistboyz) guitarist Dean Ween will release his first-ever solo project, logically entitled The Deaner Album.
The Beastie Boys, Radiohead and Jane's Addiction will all be among the acts competing for a share of your vinyl-buying budget, with remastered or expanded (and in Radiohead's case, thank goodness, resized) editions of some of their most famous works arriving in time for holiday or self gift-giving.
