New Album: [an imitation] Blood Orange
In case you haven’t heard. In the video Marshmallow Day sounds annoyingly upbeat but the rest of the tracks show promise of return to simpler song arrangements while still retaining the adult sounds of their later albums.
By the way, I really enjoy the emails that have been coming in from you about my Japan [Tokyo] trip. If you have any tips or tricks or places that you’d recommend me visiting, or just want to say hi, please don’t be shy and drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is always nice to hear from fellow fans and make new friends :)
