Dave Mantel One of my top releases of 2012. This folk-rock-pop-awesome record is full of power and poise. Kelsey's powerful vocals mixed with fantastical melody and great musicianship make this a don't-miss. And what's more amazing than half the album sales fighting slavery? Nothing. That's what. Favorite track: Bear Hope.
