Ask me to compose an album about my life thus far, and I would probably end up placing an undue emphasis on my younger time spent patronizing the local 7-11, since Slurpees are delicious and Hostess cupcakes are the calorie-filled snacks creamily overwhelming the other memories from my childhood.
It's come to a point in music where maturation of the sound sculptor might not be essential for how their art is portrayed. Not that I have a time-line of how long Windows 98? has been making music (although, the first album under this...Show More Summary
Another left-turn from Gilgongo, another reason to scratch myself and roll out of bed in the morning. Sounds crude but it’s true; what else is there in life but art, love, and survival? Pedestrian Deposit understand all too well theShow More Summary
