A cold Tuesday in LFK got a lot better yesterday when the new Hidden Pictures' album Ottomans popped up to spread a little warm pop around town.

Listen and download via Bandcamp and make sure to read the funny liner notes while doing so. Example: "Lennon Bone quit Ha Ha Tonka to play drums on this farce of a project."
