new favorite album // Abe Vigoda : “Crush”

Abe Vigoda // “Crush” : 2010.09.20
genre
post new wave
sounds like ice skating down empty city streets. snow leopards in foggy green jungles. candle-lit attic dance parties. light cycles speeding into suburban sunsets.
notes really digging the evolution this band has taken.

ABE VIGODA “DON’T LIE”

WAVVES “COOL JUMPER”
