The Grape and The Grain – Better Keep Digging (Review)

The Grape and The Grain is a project done by Daniel Grimsland who is the bassist of the band 3 and Time Travels.

Album Review + Song Stream: Vuvuzela – “The Hollow Choir” (there’s a fucking harp in the band!)

It’s rare that I come across an album that’s just so unique, I can’t pull together words to convey how truly incredible it is.
