    You guys all know how much I love Ben Frost, right? Back in June I called his album, AURORA, the best release of 2014…so far. If you’re too lazy to click that link my little blurb about it said, “Synth heavier (way heavier than previous albums) and industrial and heavy and propulsive and black and then suddenly chimes and clean synth chords and prettiness [...]
