Records That Kicked My Ass (April 2016)

Because it’s been months since I’ve posted anything and I’ve been struggling to think of a reason to post something. I’m going to try and do a post like this at least at the end of every month (it might not turn out that way, but I’m going to try and do a write up like this at the end of every month. For the last couple of months I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts, so I haven’t really been listening to a whole lot of new music.
