TFWKY is Walkingshoe's 2nd Cosmonostro release, and is a highly personal project that explores the nature of existence along with five collaborating MCs. Similar to Walkingshoe's Blastphemy EP, TFWKY is a single, cohesive flowing piece that is best listened to straight through as an album. The productions are once again carefully constructed with a great attention to detail, and can be described as a subtle joining of the organic and the electronic. TFWKY is extremely dense and yet jam packed with tiny details that will leave you listening over and over. Enjoy.

"For as hyper-cryptic and future-centric as a lot of adventurous productions wants to be, 'Occasions' levels in a naturalist persona. The gentle breeze of moving synths, piano-clad echoes, and patient beats paint a forest of sweet celebration here, trekking between ambient and subtle R&B.
It's a masterful presentation by the Chicago vet, whose been at this for more than a decade." -The 405
"Throughout 'Blastphemy', Walkingshoe exhibits a strong ear for melody, a fine knack for chopping and manipulating samples, and a great understanding of how tension and release make for engaging music." -The New Beatmaker
"This is so good" -Rappamelo
