12 months ago / 0 comments

Midi jazz chords, samples of the ocean, and a deep, pitch-shifted voice bellowing “oh yeah” were not what I expected to greet me as I began my first listen of Giraffage’s debut record. For 15 seconds I was left in cautious limbo of what kind of record Too Real was … Read More
