The Internet

A couple months ago I started listening to The Internet's album "Ego Death" and their album is still on heavy rotation. Super fresh sound, hella dope instrumentals and great vocals.

I love every song on the whole album...and I also enjoy listening to the album from start to finish.

...the whole album "Ego Death" is available on Spotify. Go listen!
