A slow Odyssey The few times that Dylan Carlson appeared in mass media, the story was told about a man in a famous rock band that committed suicide with the gun Carlson gave or sold to him. Also, he had introduced him into harsh narcotics. Can be right. But we are much more interested in […]

The water keeps on streaming, the swimming has never been so sweet. The following text is a composition of some ideas on the new record, with some of […]
