The album art looks like something Scott Hutchison would have drawn

OurFamilyInMotion says:

Brilliant album. Doesn’t quite reach the masterpiece status of her Lorraine album bit this new album is real close.

Dear Spectrum Pulse, your reviews are as thorough and enjoyable, as they are a big help for smaller acts & bands to reach potential listeners. Something i want to thank you for!
There is a band from cologne germany by the name ‘Dead Man’s Eyes’, that recently released a record on vinyl on june 22nd in 2018 that is waiting to be reviewed. Preferably by somone who is as passionate about music as you are.
Go here for youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c0BeXglI-A
Go here for Bandcamp: https://deadmanseyes.bandcamp.com/
If you need any more info or a free copy of the vinyl & or CD I am sure the band would be more than happy to send you one.
Thank you so much for all your work and effort!

Please review jids new album

Garrett Scroggs says:

I feel like I’m going through a mixture of two things you’re saying. You covered her albums and I remember her name popping up on David Nail’s last album.

Why does Lori always get 8 “best” tracks?

ChillViBeZ Techno Music says:
