ACL 2020 ~ Pandemic Playlist

Time is an unusual construct.  The pandemic made spring feel like an entire year.  Yet the year is only half over.  Or is it already half over?  It depends on where we live.  The pandemic has mostly passed in some places

Blind Cave Salamander ~ The Svalbard Suite / Ecker & Meulyzer ~ Carbon / Glåsbird ~ Svalbarð
