Fall New Music Preview: The start of the holidays
The autumn leaves of red and gold bring with them loads and loads of new music releases. The summer concert season is a good cash injection for artists, but it's the fall -- into the holiday shopping season -- where many labels bring out their big guns to bring home the glut of gift-shopping sales.
