Gloom Balloon

“Gloom Balloon is full of surprises!” -Spin Magazine
“Gloom Balloon is energizing, hilarious, heartbreaking, depressing, and sometimes it’s all of those things at the exact same instant. Gloom Balloon physically or emotionally grabs you by the head; there can be no doubt that Fleming will continue to be one of the best lyricists and one of the best performers you’ll ever see.” –
“One of the best records I’ve heard all year. […] Albums like this don’t come around every day, and we need to cherish them when they do.” – Josh Terzino, Top Album of 2013)
