Worst/Best Month for Music Releases and Discovery?

Man, some months are just superior when it comes to artists releasing music and, simultaneously, my discovery of music. List is months and recent digs. Curious as to whether you guys also find certain months to be stronger/ weaker than others.

January without a doubt is the worst. I don't know whether I'm just fatigued from the previous year or there really aren't many new releases at the time because people don't want to drop their music too early. Either way I feel like each year there's a bit of a dry spell this month.

The summer months (May, June, July) are always weak for me. Could be that I'm usually traveling and visiting family, and don't spend a lot of time on this or any music site, or it could be that during the summer I just wanna sit down with something nostalgic. Either way, can't say that I find many good records during these months.

December is usually one of the strongest months for me just in terms of discovery. It could be that I'm bombarding myself with music from the previous months to make sure I don't miss anything, but I usually catch/ come to appreciate quite a few albums in this month.

October and November aren't far behind that. Enough stuff has been released that it's easy to find something in any genre. I also feel like the colder months lend themselves better to critical listening than the warmer ones.
