BEST OF 2008

This has been one of the best years for new music!
The independent music scene has grown strong and portly over the past 5 years.
This is an interesting moment in music history.

Now you're leaving your bed
with ideas in your head
but if they remain a
dream, you know
it's criminal

You're sleep talking
your feet face north
but your brains gone south
