TONY ZAGORAIOS WHAT AN ALBUM? Im searching the last hours to put a label on that masterpiece and its not efficient. Multiple musical influences and a great variety on styles and vocal approaches. This is a record that is not easy to need some serious amount of time to understand its beauty!! Favorite track: Dead Children.

Judy Humphries Intricate, lavish art-punk masterpiece; the studio album is a splendid performance in its own right and yields new treasures with every listen. Prepare to be deposited firmly outside your confort zone, and appreciate every moment of it. Favorite track: Streets Fell Into My Window.

Brian Franklin A phenomenal album that left me pretty speechless when I first heard it. Unbelievable arrangements, lyrics and direction. Eager for their next album! Favorite track: You're Not One Of Them.

Andrew Gammage What a journey, artistic and fresh with a gothic feel and maybe even a steampunk vibe. Worth a listen if you like to get comfortable outside your comfort zone... Favorite track: Streets Fell Into My Window.
