"Hung Fire" specifically is that song that during (and quasi-post) such a turbulent time that these last couple years have been, is a deep comfort. We're all in need of a bit of tenderness right now. Who know's what's ever gonna get better, but listening to this album made me feel like it's all gonna be okay. Just for a little bit at least. And that's all we really need sometimes

This whole album is fantastic but something about the first song on the album just resonates with me. So glad my husband stumbled upon this artist on KCSB's Candy Mountain Mixtape - thank you Rambler and Hattie Belle. amattson84
