Henry Wilson "The online community is by definition pro-social and pro-technological; its very nature deflects any criticism of itself!" Favorite track: Monster (feat. Original Cast of Octet).

Milkday An amazing collection of acapella songs with something sure to appeal to everyone. I assumed it would be a cute little album was incredibly impressed. Favorite track: Candy (feat. Original Cast of Octet & Alex Gibson).

Julia Matthews You have done it again mr.malloy. Thought it feels as if I had repeating panics as the songs go on it was so SO Worth It. I absolutely love this album (also candy the song is as addictive as the song makes it out to be) Favorite track: Candy (feat. Original Cast of Octet & Alex Gibson).
Papa Dave just dropped a banger again, boys. I be crying every time I listen to this bitch. shit's fire. 10/10. will bang again
