From indie-rock to synth-pop to folk – these are the best new albums ready for streaming this long weekend.
Records seem to come and go in a flash – announced – released and then left behind after a spin or two because dozens more have already arrived in stores or online.
For fans this abundance is both boon and bane.

On the other keeping up with new releases — and developing a personal connection with records — is more difficult than ever.
In the spirit of trying to make sense of the musical avalanche here are a few worthy recent releases you might have missed.
