This one time, on bandcamp …

This week I came across two killer bands thanks to the site bandcamp. And surprise, they’re from Brooklyn. The moddish Dinosaur Feathers and the super lo-fi, searing-with-potential Night Manager. Give ’em some love. Along with the rest of this week’s Friday Five. Enjoy thoroughly.
