While I was in Austin, TX for CodeCamp 2008, I made a stop by Waterloo Records (6th & Lamar) which is probably my favorite record store. I randomly browsed for a bit before getting the definitive item I went to the store for. That item was Vallejo’s latest album, “Thicker Than Water” and it was the only think I managed to walk out the store with. Continue reading
