okay wtf?


This is why we like Fantano


Wow. All I gotta say is wow. After hearing her singles for this album, "Party Anthem" and "Jesus And Your Living Room Floor," I didn't really know what I was expecting from this artist or this album. I became even more intrigued, however, after hearing about the fact that this entire album was recorded in a damn cave. How can not be interesting?

Madison is one of the most chilling albums I've listened to this year. I don't think I've had such a turnaround on an album until this. The opener is so stunning, and to have that followed with Party Anthem, one of the best songs I have heard in so long, it just leaves goosebumps on my skin. Sloppy Jane did an excellent job on this album, and I'll be sure to check on more of their works in the future.
