Bill, you were robbed la.

Hey, that Fauns album is really good

Feels like a great late night winter driving album


I almost never consume music at the time its released, so a month late to the party, but that Epic45 Album (You’ll Only See Us When The Light Is Gone) is beautiful, one of their finest.
