Aliya – Free Spirit – CD

Aliya – Free Spirit – CD (Sound Temple) Put this CD on your disc changer, hit play and do laundry or eat a bowl of cereal. You’ll probably walk out of the house before you remember you left it on. It’s inoffensive, soft-spoken poetry set to...

Catchpenny – Dajom – CD

Catchpenny – Dajom – CD Another release by the Hobbit singer…I mean Catchpenny. On this release I think the singer strays even further from the band…except when he yells or gets into some pissed off vocals. Like at the end of …Kidding Myself. I think that...
