Anyone who’s on board with contemporaries Nation of Language …

Every so often I find myself bored with my current rotation of music and before I know it I am falling down a rabbit hole on streaming platforms trying to find something new to hold my attention. When “Needed A Change of Pace” first dropped on my desk, I remember feeling physically excited to hear …

KRISTINA MOORE it is who guises as koleżanka for her particular lusciously free, electronica- and folksily informed guitar music; and the New York-via-deepest Arizona songstress will surely be tempting her into your world via the conduit of her debut album, set for release at the end of July.
