My partner & I’s favorite voice & personality from Mountain Man, Molly Sarlé, released her debut single on Partisan Records recently and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. The obvious comparisons tap into something like Angel Olsen … Continue reading

Mitski – “Blue Light” [2018]

The new Mitski album, Be The Cowboy, is one of my favorite records of 2018 so far and it’s only been out for a little over two weeks. It exceeded all my expectations I had foolishly set about the record. It … Continue reading
