The Audio Antihero debut for Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences. We cheerily present this twisted mess of backwoods Americana and sinister Outsider Pop as the fourth installment in our "2011 Commercial Suicide Series."
This EP now comes bundled with their furious December 2011 digital Double A-Side single "You Can't Make Somebody Love You / Of Course I Stole The Train."
