Cléa Vincent – Retiens mon désir by Cléa Vincent I love French music although I don’t understand a single word. There is something in that language that makes a lot of things sound better. So sweet new wave female pop would definitely sound better, this album is the proof for that.
聯邦 F e d e r a t i o n by Iacon As you probably guessed I am not the type for electronic music, but every now and again I find something that makes me excited – this album is the first thing that got my excited in the year 2016. It is a
