The Drug Store Hard 2 Find Vol 3

The Drug Store - Hard 2 Find Vol.4

The Drug Store is the first venture for the Colored-Inc. label into Psychedelic Folk & Rock vibes.

Production duties by Erik Rug, Doctor L and Grant Phabao, with star guesting Amayo from the Fu-Arkist-Ra and Allonymous (USA), Kiala Nzavotunga and Tony Allen (from Nigeria), The Jays (from Jamaica), Le Damn Dog, Kactus Hunters, The Joslyns and The Farell Girls (from Paris)
