Summer Vibes: REALiTi by Grimes (2015)

Obviously, the perfect song to herald Independence Day weekend In the good ol' U.S. of the A is a j-pop-tinged electroromp by a young, iconoclastic Canadian bedroom synth maven. Duh! Actually, we still have a ways to go before living up to the testament of the Declaration of Independence, but it's reaffirming to know that we are making progress towards ensuring that's not just a bunch of pretty words on paper, but an accurate description of how life is for all in this country.

Another Lil' Video Playlist

MLVP 2: Maybe Bae Be

 This second video playlist is not-so-lil’: it’s brimming with some of my favorite synthy and gazey tunes that just happen to be great for these literally and figuratively torridly steamy days of midsummer.

Like the previous one, feel free to play either in the order I’ve chosen, or, throw caution to the wind and let those randomizing algorithms shake things up for you.

I can vouch to the repeat-worthiness of each and every one of these so having listened to them more times than I care to ennumerate here.

Instructions for use: Scroll down to embedded viewer. Play. Enjoy thoroughly. Repeat.
