It’s difficult to keep up with popular culture and everything else in my life all at once, so I’m perpetually a few years behind the times when it comes to music. If I keep this up, I may lose all my credibility – or at least all my cool. Anyway, music-wise I’m still hovering somewhere around 2010, and have finally gotten a chance to sit down and listen to the melancholic beauty that is Balmorhea‘s Constellations.
