Bogdan Dukhevych An absolute masterpiece. Brilliant musicianship paired with an amazing mix. Tons of layers boosting my brain cells to unravel this pazzle, which brings the only true pleasure I get in my life. This album is the background to my personality. Pure gold from Canada. Favorite track: Silence this Parasite.

Dave Sewall Just discovered this (thanks to Mercenarion on RYM) - I CANNOT wait to get home and listen to it on my good headphones. I considered going home sick just to listen…. I listen to a lot of weird stuff, so this doesn’t seem as completely batshit crazy as some say, but it sounds amazing and awesomely mixed even with crappy AirPods…

ion5 This is exactly what throwing everything at a ceiling to see what sticks would sound like, if everything stuck. Shame these guys broke up. Favorite track: Unsolved Ideas of a Distorted Guest.
