The Best of 2014

It's already february 2015 and this article comes late - which always better than never! Digital sales have now become a thing of the past for many, since a bit of notoriety gets your music available for free in just a few hours after release, and since the taxation has now changed in Europe for exporting digital products (that's a 20% downfall for us in France on digital exports).

The man brought copies of his latest EP on glorious 12 inch vinyl and of his upcoming album on CD, 'Paradise Lost'. We'll come back to the album later on,...
