I accidentally missed the June list – that’s the trouble with having a monthly post when everything else is weekly. Anyway, I’ve compiled the list for July, and it looks like activity is picking up into the summer. July 2nd in particular seems like a popular day for album releases.

This list has selected single and album releases for the month, not all of them (i.e. releases from groups that I’m interested in tracking or at least recognize). I know I must have missed important ones, so please mention the artist and title in a comment and I’ll update the list.

More complete listings are available on merchant websites (I use CD Japan’s list).
