Did anyone else notice that the World just got dark as fuck? The current state of soul crushing smog from armies of all-knowing donks and demagogues burning the world to the ground is … ugh. Shannon Lay is as overwhelmed by the modern world’s onslaught against life and love as we all are. She could have secluded herself in a shelter, instead, she made a record. Her first solo album, All This Life Going Down is a masterwork of hypnotically elegiac timeless tearjerker self-salvation songs that presents itself as a safe house for all of us like-minded discerning thinkers, and cave makers, and creators, and maker outers.
