In tradition of peculiar interviews the Poule d'Or is doing from time to time - think the Porcelain Raft photo interview from a few weeks ago - today's interview features CHILLECTRO101's infamous graduate Atlas Young. He is Japanese and just learning English.. so bear with him, after all his English is better than my Japanese. He was kind enough to include two new songs as well, free for download below..
