  • Fire, smoke, funk, chocolate. Like a s'more roasted over a campfire. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Yes, I get s'mores too, Complex as expected, but actually not as mezcal-dominated as I'd feared. — ☆☆☆☆

I'm definitely going to try

I'm definitely going to try this, but just curious if the name is a Young Marble Giants reference or a Pedro Costa reference?

Young Marble Giants all the

Young Marble Giants all the way. YMG was actually the working title for this (connecting it to the Transatlantic Giant) but I ended up liking Colossal Youth better.

Nothing against Senhor Costa or his films, of course.
