Often the Thinker ~ Greatest Possible Tenderness

San Diego is known for morning fog and afternoon sun, pleasant dispositions and easy-moving traffic.  The city is colorful and vibrant, and has produced a post-rock band to match.  Often the Thinker‘s brass section may be its not-so secret strength,
