I honestly cannot remember how I first heard Raleigh, North Carolina‰'s American Aquarium. But I‰'m pretty sure it involved seeing the cover for their 2012 record Burn.Flicker.Die and deciding to listen based on that alone. It‰'s not often that happens, and I‰'m glad I made that decision, as it g...
