Phew! Got some free time, so I cranked out Show #55 for you all! This one features all new releases! Some are by well known groups, others are putting out their first albums. I gotta say, there’s no wrong albums in this group. All of them are worth picking up and adding to your collection. Check out the artists and see what tickles your fancy.

As I said above, each of these is worth picking up. What more can I say? Well, quite a bit.
Starting with Play The Game, it was recently reviewed by the hosts of a new a cappella podcast, Mouth Off! Do check them out, these dudes are -in the -middle- of the a cappella world, and know what they’re talking about. It’s well worth their time. (And to add to controversy, I agree with them on the topic of Ben Fold’s new album.) Play The Game took almost 2 years from beginning to end, and the care and time shines through. It’s an excellent blend of studio talent and student talent.
Suit Up. features a couple of original tracks, something I wish the Bubs would take a stab at. As much as I love great a cappella covers, I love great a cappella originals at least as much. Ok guys, which of you posed for the cover?
No Strings Attached… why no English web site? Apologies to those in the listening audience who don’t speak German but are trying to work your way through the purchase process anyhow.
Superawesomesauce! On My Way is available as a –free– download from Slapdash Graduate. You can find that on their web site. See? Original tunes carry no restrictions, and make for the best promos. Go download it now.
Heh, it turnes out TCFI actually did release an earlier album, and Syllabolical is their second release. The first album seems not to have gotten wide distribution though. I’ll see about tracking down a copy (I’m such a completist).
