sustain

badbadnotgood-sustain-new

Purchase the tracks on iTunes. The Toronto trio consisting of Chester Hansen, Alex Sowinski and Matt Tavares comment their recent release …

This album is actually entirely instrumental and completely surprise free – unless people are surprised by hot jams. The only collaborators on the album are with some very talented friends and we’re hoping the music will speak for itself. Some of the future jams we are working on will be with more friends and secret guests.
