Mueller's Musings: A Look at March 

The month of March sees a number of interesting releases from bands old and new.  Probably the most interesting is the European release of Woven Hand, which is the latest project of 16 Horsepower's David Eugene Edwards.  No word on the American release, but hardcore fans of the band will probably
order it from the internet or check out import bins.  The disc surfaces on March 26th.  Also this month, on March 5th look for the latest from Pop Unknown called The August Division.  Also of interest that day is Didn't It Rain from Songs: Ohia.  On the 12th look for a beautiful album from Haydn (Skyscraper National Park) as well as Uncle Tupelo's Greatest Hits, from the band that gave name to the No Depression movement.  And also on the 12th is the latest from indie superstar Bob Mould.
