How much new music did I listen to in February 2018? Let's find out!

Whoops. Took me a while to get to this, huh?

Not only is March almost over, but I listened to a pitifully small amount of new music last month. February was rough—especially that whole flooded basement thing—so I think I retreated into older, comfort music. I also played Sloan’s 12, like, a bajillion times. But hey, at least I finally got around to putting this together!

Don’t worry, March is already shaping up to be much better numbers-wise.

Revamped rating system is here.

Total number of new/upcoming releases listened to in February 2018: 17

Number of those releases that rated 7-10: 2

Number of those releases that rated 5-6: 1

Number of those releases that rated 3-4: 14

Number of those releases that rated 1-2: 0

Highest rated album: Surprise, surprise! Sloan’s 12.

New band I’d never heard of that caught me off guard: Moaning’s self-titled debut is worth checking out. If you’re reading this on March 20, you can check them out at The Empty Bottle tonight.

Most surprising discovery: Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John was truly delightful. It could have been twee or ironic, but it’s just  straightforward, loving covers.
