Night Beat Rewind: June 2016

We are down to the final stretch. The beginning of July doesn't just mean the kicking of Summer into high gear, it also means that there are only 3 months left to make the #PlatVnyl7 eligibility pool. And that warning will be heeded. Usually at least one release occurs, sometimes in late August, that simply screams Album of The Year. Don't laugh, it happens more often than you think.

We begin with the song releases, or as we like to call it

The Singles Scene

  • Tanya Godsey - We Are Your Song 4.50 Emeralds
  • Anna Golden - Changing Me 4.75 Emeralds
  • Spencer Kane - New Level 4.50 Emeralds
  • Skillet - Stars 4.75 Emeralds
A nice bunch of singles this month. Should make for an interesting year in the Song Awards. On to the albums. First to the albums, or more specifically album, which 

Missed The Mark

  • First Call - Second Birth 3.75 Emeralds

  • Thousand Foot Krutch - Exhale 5 Emeralds
  • The Union of Sinners and Saints - The Union of Sinners and Saints 5 Emeralds
This is a jam packed month. This is going to be a very tough year to judge. Like we say, most music lies somewhere in the middle, or what we call
