Kings of Animals

I just got this EP and I like it a lot, the album artwork is cool too, there’s a big picture inside of a guy holding a fish that’s pretty funny.  I lied to Cary and Nick saying it was the guy from Small Black who was a competitive fisherman for a while before getting into music.  They believed me and it was hilarious, I laughed so hard to the point where your laughs just stop making noise. I wish I could find a picture of the inside, it would only make my story funnier, trust me.

I’m working on a playlist to post, so look forward to that.
