MUSIC IS ALIVE!!! Three tracks for today.

Some weeks you're faced with back-to-back-to-back unsolicited assertions that no "good" music is being made "these days" nor has any been made since [pick decade when this person was 13-17 years old]. While it's difficult to talk folks down from this opinion, all I can do is over a trio of ear-catching tracks from recent, new, and soon-to-be released albums and let you all judge for yourselves if "good" music is still a thing.

Available now on Vinyl and CD

Fond of Tigers - Uninhabit (Offseason)
