  • Animal Joy never really seemed to click with me, the few times I listened to it, but I'm absolutely loving Jet Plane and Oxbow, and I'm in my second spin right now!

  • Rooks is one of my favorites of all times
  • Alemayehu, My Only Boy, and Mountain Laurel need more shout outs. Underrated tracks.
