    I just saw David Bazan and he was talking about coming back to Southern California with Black Cloud (his newest band/project). Can’t wait.

    This album would absolutely be in my “10 Albums On An Island” list.

    It’s brilliant, amazing, heart-wrenching, and just plain good. And to think the first time I heard it I really didn’t like it.

    It took three good full listens and then there was no turning back.
