MDNT45 Black Long Women Kimono Tenshi

Backxwash HIS HAPPINESS SHALL COME FIRST EVEN THOUGH WE ARE SUFFERING vinyl

$30 • Bandcamp

I’m a big fan of Backxwash. She’s one of the coolest new artists in a long time: dark, heavy and flowy, a combo of sounds I’ve always loved.

I have this in black, but I really want the pink because it is obviously much cooler.

Imagine riding around in this? This, paired with my cat helmet, would certainly turn heads in my small town, as a local small-town villain.
