“majikaL girlfrienD​+​*​.​!” – LoneMoon

OMGGGGGGGGGoodness this album is awesome. LoneMoon does it again with another absolute banger of an album in the follow up to Indie Pong-acclaimed album “kit@Nai”, which I was fortunate enough to interview LoneMoon AKA Luna about last year in one of my favorite interviews to date.
