This week’s issue of Letters From Bandcamp starts off like the first nail-digging drop of a rollercoaster and ends like the slow, relaxing rumble back to the line when the ride’s over. It starts like a cannonball into your cousin’s swimming pool and ends with you getting out of the pool, ’cause like, 10 minutes of socializing is enough. It starts like the beginning of a sandwich and ends like the end of a sandwich. And other metaphors.
