Stuff #1

I love writing. I love music. At the top of this year, I finally realized that I love writing about things other than music. I'm still contributing to Passion of the Weiss, which is awesome, but I don't write about even a fraction of the stuff catches my ear. So every few weeks or so, I plan on uploading a "Stuff" compilation, made up of jams new and old, and posting it on Lattisaw Tapes. I think this will be a cool way to share music without overthinking it. Enjoy.
