September in 179 Albums

This is a new column, similar to our beloved Weekly Release Dumps, but in a monthly fashion. Quite simply, I will just put every album I’ve listened to in one month. The reason for this is because I sometimes miss a few releases from a certain week, that I stumble upon or discover only a few days or a week after the WRD post. In this new column, I will be able to give them their fair share of spotlight. I hope you enjoy it!
