Summersteps Records Reader Find

By Summersteps Records in New Music on Tuesday 11 December 2012

Robyn Hitchock is one of my all time favorite musicians. His green tinted acoustic based LPs (EYE, I Often Dream of Trains and the somewhat more recent, Spooked) always find their way onto my record player when the leaves start changing colors.
