LTTW wins me over because it's more guitar based, while North is more piano based.

JTHomeslice 09/04/11 07:32 AM

Dangerous Summer's War Paint + Frenzal Rhomb's Smoko at the Pet Food Factory have been in heavy rotation.

i preordered thrice and horrible crowes, so i dont feel bad listening to the leaks. as long as your supporting the artist still, it shouldnt be a bummer.
