    never really loved SB, new songs are just as good as old IMO. i've been obsessed with From Indian Lakes, Volumes, Bad Suns, and Trade Winds lately

    not really digging the new SB tracks, the stuff they released a year or two ago was so much better.

    @gocomeback Icarus, Start & Pause, Manipulate The Eclipse. Nothing else on that record really left an impression on me.

    I think that The Backwards Pumpkin Song is my favorite DGD song of all time. I just love the beginning, and the feeling in that song, like seriously. ALSO, fuck this world for not having more bands that sound like Hopesfall. Especially Magnetic North-era Hopesfall (I know some of you might like the older stuff more, and I like it... but Magnetic North is just. yeah.).. UGH.
