TUNE The Van Allen Belt - 143
Just as I was thinking beach boys influence, this track comes on and confirms my feeling. Beach boys but cutting enough that I could hear Freddie Gibbs rap over the beat. The talent involved in arranging these pieces is not to be overlooked: a gem. It’s acoustics worthy of stages, a bookend on the last 50 years of pop music that all lead to this moment. No longer the free love of the 60’s- our expressions of love are numerical and mediated by multi-billion dollar companies over fiber optic cables from our quarantined bunkers.
