Interview: Manolis Karazeris (Dexter Ward)

When I listened to Dexter Ward’s latest output III for the first time, it blew me away. Even after a lot of spins, nine months later, it’s still an engrossing album that never bores me. For me, it’s one of the best records released in 2020, no doubt about it – and it contains a […]
