Silver Currents with To The Wedding - An Interview

Quando tudo parece caótico, perdido e sem rumo, a receita que o TBTCI passa é a audição de Silver Currents o segundo ep do To The Wedding.

Recomendado para o tratamento da mente, corpo e alma, hipnoticamente intimista e introspectivo mas cuidado, Set Fire pode danificar por completo seu retiro.

Simplesmente acima, deve ser degustado imediatamente.
