Iowa Informer reviews Gloom Balloon’s new album

Iowa Informer reviews the new album from Gloom Balloon, Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom, Underneath the Stars and the Moon (Maximum Ames Records):

One of the things that Patrick Tape Fleming does perhaps better than anyone is to write confessional songs that are heartfelt, but not whiny, contrived, or full-on emo. In fact, at times he’s just downright hilarious while confiding in you about heartbreak, and this ability is fully on display on the second full-length Gloom Balloon album.

All Things Go premieres The Slowdown’s new single “Look Older”


All Things Go premieres The Slowdown‘s new single “Look Older”:

Gorgeous, though drenched despair, ‘Look Older’ plunges into the solipsistic trench at the heart of the human condition. Guitars and synth dance in annular swirls as a voice skates across the frozen backdrop and breathily delivers the bad news: we’re all painfully and irrevocably lonely. Coolly delivered heartache has never sounded so sweet.
