Swing Season: The 2014 1rst Quarter - Alternative

We continue with the announcement of the Pool Eligible entries for the 1rst Quarter of 2014. This is the first hurdle that an album must face. We are building up to the big genres.

A big genre that is off to a slow start is Alternative. Only 5 releases made the cut, and one of those is a double dipper. Well, two double dippers are present, but for entirely different reasons. All The Bright Lights is in two genres, and Anberlin is in for the second year in a row with Vital because of its Devotion Special Edition. In total, these are the Alternative entries for the quarter.
Next time we will do the last of the small posts, Dance/Synthpop. After that all of the genres had a full awards show worth of entrants or more, which means judging, and that makes me happy. Also Pop and Folk had no entrants this quarter, but that will change. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
