“i lose my faith in people, why even take the time? youve got your problems, i’ve got mine.” for the last 4/5 years, i honestly dont even know how many years its been, but timothy showalter has been one of my favorite artists for a good amount of time now. the first time i heard “end in flames” off his strand of oaks debut leave ruin i knew this guy and his music would play a huge part in my life. every record, leave ruin, pope killdragon and dark shores, i believe ended up in my top 5/10 of the year. timothy’s new record heal is due on dead oceans on 6.24. i was hoping to have the record in my mitts, by now, but sadly tis not the case. even after 9 years of music “blogging” i still cant get on some labels distribution lists. oh well, not too bitter. i kid, i kid, kind of. no doubt this will be one of my favorite records of the year.
