I was rather tired this week but I knew that I could use this time to look back at some of the music I heard last week. there’s been a lot that has come in and I wanted to take some time to actually live in this music.
The Line-Up for 1 November 2019

This does seem like a fascinating addition to the library that I knew I had to include in the 1 spot.

I’m still working my way through Assembly of Shadows.
