Dirtiest Camelot by Try Hardz – Album Review

Try Hardz employ a collage-like approach on the infinitely colorful utterly fascinating “Dirtiest Camelot”. Impossible to truly define, Try Hardz defy categorization. Exploration becomes the utmost of importance while Try Hardz stretch and distort everything they possibly can. A loose, almost improvised feeling, takes hold over the course of the journey.

Lazu Lie is…
