Music – Land of Talk’s “Heartcore”

You know, Land of Talk has become such a huge band for me the past couple years. I don’t remember why I even checked out their Cloak and Cipher CD before I moved, but I can’t imagine my life in its current form without their music. Today I’m sharing another great song from Life After…
