The Friday Refrain: Your Weekly New Music Digest

Happy New Year to all! You know, music releases are like New Year's Resolutions - it seems easy enough to keep on top of what's coming out and start the year off on track but by March that New Year glow has worn off and you realize this is going to be work. Suddenly it's the end of the year and you've give up completely on ever keeping up with it all and staying organized.

Until January 1st and then it's like, "I can do this. I just have to start now" all over again.

So here's the Friday Refrain back and in action - also the young one is napping so it became easy to do this like in days of yore. Plus cupcakKe's Ephorize is really the biggest name out today so it was kinda easy. But let's just consider the singles out this week because 2018 has some tricks up its sleeve: Justin TImberlake, A Perfect Circle, Kendrick Lamar, MGMT. That MGMT album is really soon too. Plus I hear tell that Tool is finally releasing an album as well. Tool! But I'll believe that when I hear it.

Anyway, I haven't been keeping up on The Lists of aggregated releases for December so I have none of that. But popover (I know it's supposed to be two words but I first wrote it like that, started to change it and then thought it was too funny so I kept it) to because Josh and I talked about our favorite albums from the last half of the year. I'm hoping to polish up my full 2017 best of list this month because it's at least 200 albums and there's some great stuff in there.

So that's going to do it for today - another Friday Refrain light but hang on to your hats everybody because this year is going to be it. I'm going to be organized and stay on top of it so as always - Happy Listening!

ps. So psyched to see the Bonnaroo line-up on Tuesday. AHHHH!!!
