A river of sounds from sources wide and varied flow into one of my absolute top-tier favorite releases to date in this extremely long year.
Hey, I’m just as shocked as you are that they went with my suggested headline, but life’s just full of surprises.
Look, it was between this title and a play on “bedroom eyes,” and I think I ultimately went with the lesser of two evils here.
