For me–when it comes to music–January and February are characterized by sifting through a heap of end-of-year lists while doing my very best to keep up with new releases as they come. It's chaotic and my notebooks reflect this. The most exciting thing about it for me is just how much amazing music from the previous year I forgot about or just flat out missed. The truth is, each years music is so vast and rich that it can't be adequately described by any one or even ten peoples lists. The burst binding on my January Notebook is a testament to this fact. Happy listening and I hope you are able to pocket more than a few gems.
