Album Reviews

The Horrors – Luminous (2014)

Context - plotting and scheming Things are in motion!  I'm in the "putting too many projects on my plate" phase of my creative process, and we'll see what cream rises to the top, as it were.  Hopefully all of it... Continue Reading →

Taking Back Sunday – Tidal Wave (2016)
