Ambassadeurs - Duke Red
It’s moments like this that make my heart melt. Without getting too personal and mushy, I used to work at the college where Mark (Ambassadeurs) was studying a year or so ago, and thinking about him making music like this in the studios I used to care for, just makes me feel all warm inside. Here Ambassadeurs has managed to make something bigger than the sum of all it’s parts. For...
