I've enjoyed Santo Rostro's first two efforts. With their third release, The Healer, they really got their shit together and created an album that batters their prior offerings. It's like the difference between a 10yo and a 12yo scotch. Whatever characteristics that make that 10-year-old Islay Malt good only improve with the added couple years. BitterCOld
A great comp, mixing in some of my fave DM artists (Tort, Santo Rostro), newer faves (Rosy Finch) and new tunes altogether. Love what DM has been putting out, good start point to check out their stable. BitterCOld
