R Micklos' "A Brighter Birth" on cassette (out now via bandcamp) is Ryan Micklos' debut full-length. Recorded in his basement, this airy synth and guitar based album is full of catchy hooks and swift left turns. It was written and recorded during his wife's pregnancy and dedicated to his first son Rune. This record explores sounds in a way that is both surprising and soothing. We're still trying to figure out who this is influenced by or sounds like but we love it! Look out for another release by Micklos in 2017. Ryan is now living in Austin, Texas and remaining a true badass.
