The full-length debut album from Milky Chance, 2013's Sadnecessary, showcases the German duo's stylistically varied sound. Centered on the talents of singer/songwriter Clemens Rehbein and DJ Philipp Dausch, Milky Chance make quirky, atmospheric songs that touch upon such genres as folk, reggae, and electronica.

Included here are such songs as "Stolen Dance," "Down by the River," and "Flashed Junk Mind." ~ Matt Collar
