RANO – The Outer Church Confessional

RANO - The Outer Church Confessional

About a week ago we made a special mix for our good friends at The Outer Church. We recently added it to our Mixcloud page so we could timestamp, and further support the artists that contributed music. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who shared their tunes with us. We tried very hard to include everyone and I think the finished product turned out great! We’d also like to thank Joseph Stannard for being such a gracious host and for all of the support he’s given to Rano since our inception. Feel free to listen to the mix right here or on our Mixcloud page, and visit The Outer Church for the Download and full commentary. Cheers!
