The main thing about this album thats different- Im trying to sell the download. I have given away six albums on this site…

Music builds community, and so this is a group of people who want to share music with one another, and discuss the albums we share. Blues, lofi, punk, country...whatever. Single mp3s or entire albums, its all good.
