Gryphon Rue – “High Priestess”

Gryphon Rue on Bandcamp.

Rating: 3.5 out of 4.

Gryphon Rue makes me want to steal Tom Ripley’s sweater vest and invest in a medium-sized boat and only live fabulously in my own head. Maybe you’ll be invited. Y’all know my rule that I’ll listen to anything with a good drummer. Sexy stardust.
