Next Week in Music | Feb. 15-21 • The Long List: 275+ Releases On The Way

Celebrate Hoodie Hoo Day (and the rest of the week) with these fine offerings.


Next Saturday, as I’m sure you’re aware, is Hoodie Hoo Day. What’s that? You’ve never heard of it? Colour me shocked. Here’s the deal: On Hoodie Hoo Day, you’re supposed to go outside at noon, raise your hands over you head and yell — you guessed it — “Hoodie Hoo!!” (I swear I’m not kidding. Go ahead and look it up.) You can also celebrate by wearing a weird hat, ordering seeds for your garden or (for some reason) buying used furniture at a flea market. I would humbly suggest adding another activity to that list: Checking out one (or more) of the new albums on this list. Hoodie Hoo!!
