Ringing in Spring: February Edition

In fall of 2021, I did a series of three blogs in which I made mini 15-song playlists to capture the feelings of fall that eventually compiled into one large playlist. I did one blog in September, one in October and finally finished out the series in November.  If you can’t already tell by the title and the context I just provided, I’m doing the same thing for the spring of 2022.

I know February isn’t technically spring’s genesis, but this playlist installment is more about breaking free of winter and looking forward to spring. With a quintessential indie rock sound, some songs are joyous and some existential.

Without further ado, let me share the February edition of “Ringing in Spring.”
