Black Eye Galaxy
Black Eye Galaxy ups the ante on American Patchwork’s dizzying blend of soul-baring ballads, infectious roots pop and wildly intense rockers. Key tracks include the first radio single, “When Will I See You Again?,” the sledgehammer blues of “Send Me A Friend” and the epic title track. “Raging, expressive guitar and soulful singing…from scorched-earth rock to sweet, tender ballads” – RELIX
