heard about this artist from one of my favorite present day weirdo pop bands, pinkshinyultrablast, who did a tribute track to chiemi manabe on their latest record, which is excellent by the way. naturally, i wanted to check this out, especially so after seeing this fantastic cover art. i then came across this snazzy youtube vid for her song 'targeted girl' and i was hooked.

pitchdork kinda clowned this album. and they may be right. but i don't know. didn't you used to think hall and oats were awful, and then one day you kinda realized you liked it? sade? if you are not a sade fan, then, i mean, we can still be friends of course... but... i might ask you if you have never in your life had a nice time in a restaurant at 3pm in between the lunch rush and the dinner rush when there are not a lot of other customers in there.

Debut long player from this six piece Glasgowian dance band. Check out this live session and you will know what you are getting into with this. The fifth cut off of this record has become my soundtrack for winter 2017. I can't stop asking myself this question: A true one... or a lie one? Also, what is not to like about a dance band named after a strain of magic mushrooms, eh?

you could say that this album has been my gateway to power metal. dj lionshead might say, dude, manowar. and, yea, you might as well include mercyful fate. still, dream tröll really carry the torch right. much respect to metal band camp for putting me on to these lads.
