A Thick Mist (October 23, 2017)

Kelly Lee Owens is probably techno record of the year. Upper Wilds is probably rock record of the year. The Bulgarian folk mixed with Nancarrow’s player piano work is so much better than I expected it to be. Also, check out the Discogs page for that Bulgarian record because I played 8 songs, each with a slew of musicians involved, so if you want to know who/what/etc, Discogs does a better job at conveying that info than I could here.
