    sehr gut, was man hier alles entdecken/ nachholen/ wieder rauskramen kann! aber dass die cursive-platte völlig an mir vorbeigegangen ist, das ist eigentlich ganz schön schwach.

    I love that you like what you like and aren't afraid to put Gaga on your otherwise "indie" list. I'll def check some of these out.
