In Case You Missed It - The Tripwire Week In Review

It got increasingly more difficult to pay attention to our work this week. The weather is finally starting to get better in New York, so bowling field trips and songs that make us think about summer have been filling our time. This after we spoke to Jon Hopkins, went to Coachella and celebrated Record Store Day. Here is The Tripwire week in review. Now, let's go have a beer and enjoy this sunshine.
