Every time I give up on finding awesome new music a gem shines through the shit. This dude is the deal. It’s a rare thing to have an eargasm but holy fuck I was fairly certain I wanted a cigarette* after hearing him rip out Bang To Break The Drum. I keep listening to it over and over. I’m gonna play it til I get completely sick of it. I’ll let you know when (if) that happens. I highly doubt I will. I’ve spent the night listening to his stuff and it just keeps getting better. I keep thinking I’ll find something I don’t like. Nope. Go listen to Stranger. Seriously, go.
