Turn Up The Volume: “I found my god in a garbage can at the corner
of the graveyard of man” must be the opening line of the year. It also
starts a shadowy beauty of a song. Both moody and reflective, but also
graceful and intimately blissful. Pure singer-songwriter splendour. By the
way, I can’t remember when I heard a sparkling bouzouki sound and it
works subtly great here.

Ps: I’m not happy with an EP, I want a full album.
