Cryptodira – The Angel of History (Good Fight)

Chances are it’s not the first time you hear of Cryptodira.

Nick Prol & the Proletarians – An Erstwisle Alphabestiary, Book One

An Erstwisle Alphabestiary is the work of the progressive rock band of Nick Prol and his Proletarians, among which toil Ben Spees and Connor Reilly of The Mercury Tree. If you weren’t there for the release of their 2017 debut Loon Attic, well, it’s never too late to acquaint yourselves with it, but you perhaps wouldn’t know why I’m so excited for this album.
