RIP Leonard Cohen

RIP Leonard Cohen

This week the music world lost a legend in Leonard Cohen and the world of logic, reason, diversity, beauty, and love lost a little piece of its soul. This episode grapples with a variety of emotions through subversive and cathartic sounds. There’s anger, despair, hope, ruminations and importantly, lots of fucking noise. Long may it continue.
