Just Listen: The Amazons – Doubt It

Album Review: Cassia – Replica

Album Review: Cassia – Replica Words by Gary Lambert I’ve got an idea. A strange idea, but an idea nevertheless. Copies of Replica should be given away with the purchase of a Fitbit. Why? Because it makes you go for a walk. Or at least it has done for me. After a first listen to … Continue reading
