|I wonder what I'm listening to here.|
February saw a bit of a dip, and not just due to the shortened month. Current political events are wearing on me and I find myself turning more and more to reassuring music from my past to help refill the ol’ emotional tank. Don’t worry, I still managed to fit a bunch of new records into my listening schedule.
I explain my ratings here, if you're interested.
Total number of new/upcoming releases listened to in January 2017: 45
Number of those releases that rated 7-10: 4
Number of those releases that rated 4-6: 31
Number of those releases that rated 1-3: 13
Highest rated album: Charly Bliss - Guppy (Surprise!)
New band I’d never heard of that caught me off guard: The Bombpops. Total power-punk ear candy.
Most surprising discovery: That there is such a thing as a boring Sleater-Kinney live album.
