Josh Mason’s Best Of 2014

Favorite Album: Talk West – Black Coral Sprig (Preservation) Black Coral Sprig by Talk West Dylan Aycock has created a record that does one of my favorite things: it transcends season and location. ‘Black Coral Sprig’ works in the heat, the cold and everything in between.
