Webstore Wednesday: New releases by Sonny Knight & Mystery Date

Webstore Wednesday is the first of what will be several reoccurring feature on our blog/news section. Each week we’ll get you over the hump with something from our webstore. If you’re not familiar with our online distro, go to store.modern-radio.com.

In addition to our own releases, we’re carrying numerous records and cassettes from artists and labels we dig. Most of the records are on labels connected to Minnesota or by artists based out of Minnesota. This week we have two hot new releases by two different but fantastic groups: Sonny Knight and the Lakers and Mystery Date.
