#MWE – Music Writer Exercise: 29 albums in 29 days

February was #MWE month on Twitter, listen to ONE album every day you have never heard before then tweet your initial thoughts. I decided to do all women artists this month, from across the globe. Almost every album was interesting, some astounding, and the Japanese idol group Nogizaka47 was among the most horrid things I’ve ever heard. Check my Twitter feed @mrokjazztokyo to see my thoughts! Look forward to doing this again next year.
