Nineteen Forty Three

Man o’ man, busy week keeps knockin’ me on my ass! All good, all good. Been listening to a bunch of goodness this week, I’ll try to get more up later, but for now, we got The Gunshy, with his scratchy-ass-tom-waits-esque voice and timeless album No Love In This War. Absolutely beautiful… It’s kind of a concept album, where apparently, each of the songs are taken chronologically from the 17 letters Arbogast’s grandfather Paul wrote his fiancĂ©e Julia from the European front during WWII.

Not much more to say, except enjoy!
