15Small Leaks Sink Ships
Golden Calf

experimental rock/pop

holy,,,,,, shit,,,,,,,, this one snuck up on me (thanks blush) but it's beautiful/idiosyncratic in the best of ways. i'm still on its high, which may be cause for its position, but i feel like this record is more special than it was intended to be; it's not a statement, it didn't break any notions of obscurity, nor does it try to be an album that saves your life, but it growsandgrowsandgrowsandgrowsandgrowsandgrowsandgrowsand --
