Goon have released one of my favourite editions of 2022 with the Painting By Numbers EP Vol 1. Kenny from the group is aiming for music that offers that “really sad and comforting feeling”. It’s a stunning release. As well, magic works from Papercuts, Phia, Ethan Woods and pimpod favs, Charm of Finches.
