British Invasion 25

Ah yes, the United Kingdom. The British Invasion 25 originated from a themed event put together by Sari and Kayli, where we indulged in a smorgasbord of British cuisine and shared lists of our favorite records from the ongoing British Invasion.

Kelela – Cut 4 Me

Kelela Cut 4 Me Fade To Mind 2013 Kelela's Cut 4 Me is without a doubt one of my absolute favorite records in recent memory.
