Matt and Kim’s latest album, “New Glow”, is a lackluster record that doesn’t even shimmer, let alone glow. The 28-minute album is filled with thrown together tracks that end and lead straight into another thoughtless, unimpressive song. Some of the tracks on this record have odd hip-hop influences... Read more »

City Sandwich Company proves that looks can be deceiving. When I walked toward the shop, I actually thought the place was closed because of the bars on the windows, but the blinking open sign suggested otherwise. Sure enough, the place was open.
