Flatbasset Radio's 25 Most Played Albums: June '18

Well hello again, everybody! Welcome to yet another compelling episode of "Things I Listened To While Praising My New God: Air Conditioning!"

That's right, another month is in the books. It was a sweaty one here in Minneapolis, but you know what they say - if you don't like the weather in Minnesota just complain about it forever until you've been ostracized by friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, potential lovers, pets, retail workers, public transit employees... Well, you get the idea.

Before I get to the list - Huge thanks to everybody who checked out the podcast this month. I know I thank you every month, but I mean it every time. This is a hobby, but it's one I take seriously. I really do put a lot of effort into trying to provide quality shows. Glad people are digging them.

Related note - Big thanks to anybody who shared the show on this big dumb internet. I don't have any sort of advertising (or advertising budget for that matter) and it'll be a cold day in hell before I pay Team Zuckyberg to "Boost" anything, so those shares are pretty much the whole reach of the podcast. They're definitely appreciated.

Alright, let's get to the thing.

As always, one "play" equals one song. For example, the new Astronomique album has 10 songs on it, so each time I listen to it front to back it counts as ten "plays." As usual, all stats come from my Last.FM page. Give it a follow if you really want to stay up on what's getting the most plays.

01. Astronomique - Sharp Divide (72 plays)

02. Flip Rushmore - Big, If True (70 plays)

03. Rancid - Life Won't Wait (67 plays)

04. Scrunchies - Stunner (65 plays)

05. Bruce Springsteen- Human Touch (57 plays)
