The Statement:
“I have worked with Andy and BVB since he was a teenager, first discovering him as a booking agent in the early days of Sumerian. To see everything he’s accomplished as a musician, actor and writer in the past decade is truly inspiring. To finally be able to partner with Andy and BVB as their record label while working alongside Blasko and Brxnd management for the next era of the band I believe will lead to the most compelling days yet and Andy is only in his 20s… exciting times ahead!” – Ash Avildsen

The begin with the seasons and Winter kicks us off. I know that I listened to the New Years Day song since I reviewed it (right HERE actually), and I don’t recall why but I did look up the classic by Moving Pictures a few times. I think I had heard a terrible cover of this song and decided to stream the original in Spotify. They also show a podcast that my friend at Ghost Cult Magazine is often involved in and my listening to that was to hear what he had to add to the mix. I do not specifically listen or even participate in podcasts.
