Bonny Light Horseman - Rolling Golden Holy

 

Bonny Light Horseman - Rolling Golden Holy

Sun Ra - Living Sky

 

Sun Ra Arkestra - Living Sky

 

the legend marshall allen still kickass on new album as 98 years old like another day in business. free/avant-garde jazz on its finest moment ever.

Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings

 

Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings

 

back on every 3 years with no exception here, hard rock/post grudge vet on furious riff chords and great produced arrangement as usual. best since fortress.

Plains - I Walked With You a Ways

 

Plains - I Walked With You a Ways

Noah Kahan - Stick Season

 

Noah Kahan - Stick Season
