The date is June 9th and today brings what is most likely the most anticipated release of albums and singles for 2014 so far. Today's highly esteemed list includes the newest from Jack White, First Aid Kit and Tomas Barfod, along with many potential classics. We're getting right into the best time of the musical year; get your headphones ready.

Below you'll find a list of key albums/singles released today, along with links to our reviews (the ones in blue). Due to our review policy (up to two weeks before release, and in some cases the week following the release), a lot of the albums/singles won't have reviews attached to them, but hopefully this will act as a handy shopping list to take to your local record store.
