Very rarely, there is a creation that holds merit simply because it is comprised of magnificent, unquestionably perfect parts. If you’ve ever had a S’more then you’ve been an active participant in this believe system.

There’s little I can say about this album aside from “don’t read the track listing if you’re in a quiet room right now because you will surely yell some joyous obscenity, and then perhaps also pee yourself a little bit.” It features beloved tracks from Ben Howard, Gotye, Michael Kiwanuka, Matt Corby and more, as well as the recording debut of UK-based Bear’s Den!
My advice: just go buy it. It’s better than pancetta-wrapped-bacon which is then wrapped in more bacon. 

“Communion is record label that was born in the Summer of 2006 at London’s Notting Hill Arts Club. Founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), former Cherbourg bassist Kevin Jones, and acclaimed producer Ian Grimble, it quickly grew into a flourishing community of musicians and fans alike, providing a first independent platform for the freshest young artists on London’s circuit and beyond.” — Communion Music
