Excerpt from Q&A with Small Albums

Dreamy kind of woman

Twangy modern melancholy (with amazing artwork)

This space is full of tasty guitar solos and vintage synth sounds

Sometimes the things you do in public are the best

Solei – Wave Cave
Studies in weightlesness

The Ghost of Electricity – The Ritual
Lovely bones for mysterious ritual

Hopefully they’ll kill everyone with kindness

Windmills by the Ocean – The Whist
Swirling vortex of sound, pulling the listener in with each subsequent chug

Printing Shed – The Mirror You Broke a While Ago
Traces of violence abound among the quiet
