In six months, KDHX DJs turn their ears to more new music than other stations do in decades. While each DJ has their own taste -- spanning rock, blues, country, folk, hip-hop, jazz, world music and more -- the list below includes the new releases we've collectively been excited about so far in 2016, including local releases (highlighted) from Middle Class Fashion, Cave States, Sleepy Kitty, Aching Hearts, and Southwest Watson Sweethearts. Here's every new album or EP with over 25 spins through the end of June. To take a listen, check out the playlist on Spotify.
