Ah, the holiday season has all but come and gone. The ginger bread houses have been eaten, the presents unwrapped, the bottles of champagne devoured, and we now find ourselves back in the cold, harsh reality of work and winter. Well, that is for most of us. For one, we here at Consequence of Sound were here throughout the last two weeks, providing all the latest news and reviews for those music fans looking for a quick break from all the aforementioned holiday fun.
However, if you weren’t part of that crowd, or are having a hard time remembering, don’t worry. Below, you’ll find a nice little recap to help you catch up on anything you may have missed.
