  • so Thom continues to surprise us with his ability to be the critic and write like a proper hipster about music when asked. I kinda like that he doesn’t do it too often, and we can retain the impression of an idiot-savant who would never be so crass as to try to describe sounds he’s addicted to in mere ordinary words. Good songs though (haha I didn’t know most of them till Thom mentioned them) and after all these years it’s especially nice to see some love for Tricky.

  • Nathan Fake is officially on my radar.

    Thanks Thom!!

  • intriuging

  • Well this could likely be considered a very good article, instead beneficial an I be conscious that it is in real truth instead crucial particularly for people teenagers who’ve dermis problems.
