The first three months of 2023 are gone, and Taylor Ruckle has returned. We both think that this past quarter was a particularly strong one for new music. Since we had this conversation, I have listened to the albums of Taylor's top five that I hadn't gotten to yet, and of those, the Screaming Females album was my favorite. That said, I like them all to some degree, and they're all definitely worth your time.
