The Great Sabatini - Dog Years

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Montreal’s The Great Sabatini are one of the latest additions to the excellent French label Solar Flare Records’ roster, and with label mates ranging from Sofy Major to Pigs, you could probably hazard a guess before hearing them that they’re going to enjoy damaging […]

SpiralShades
