Cloudy Day Listening: Ancient Youth Club’s “Milk”

Despite this blog resorting to “sunny” as an adjective for guitar-guided indie-pop over the last…how many years…the stuff is just as potent on overcast days where it feels like rain is about to come pouring down at any second.

For every skippy run, a sigh is waiting around the corner. Listen above.
