TMI 2022 | 25 | Lighthouse Family split

(Sunday 12 June through Sunday 19 June)

Fresh -Ish)

Albums, mixtapes, EPs, whatever… Not all new releases! … every fresh(-ish) project I’ve listened through over the last week, whether with deep intent or in the background while I’m trying to get my head round something else.
Rated!nothing to do with quality! WTF would I know about quality? …based on how likely I am to go back to it, or bits of it, with 5* meaning it’s already been on repeat…
