Listen: ?galen tipton? - ”( ? )? sculpt( ? )?”

“( ? )? sculpt ( ? )?” is aptly titled. Peppered with proletarian percussion and vaseline-slicked, sparkling vapor-jazz melodies, ?galen tipton?'s latest soundcape is a utopian vision of labor in a digital world -- call it twee-brutalism. Show More Summary
