Cool Songs : February

Forewarning : This playlist will be considerably less involved than January.  Last month, we felt compelled to break down tracks, and what they meant to us and shit.  This month we’re mad at you, but we’re not telling you why.

I will say I had like some sort of half-cold for a couple weeks, paired with the fact I started Homeland. And then there was the week that I just listened to “Call Your Girlfriend” on repeat. I won’t deny trying to watch the video on my phone while driving on the highway (4 or 5 times). Sorry world.

A few things worth noting though. I invite anybody to try knocking “Retrograde” off the top of the mountain. Far and away song of the year for me. “AM Portal” and “The Mirror Reflecting (Part 2)” had to be back in this mix. The latter sent me down an internet rabbit hole where I found electronic doom music. Way more terrifying than the heaviest metal and some of it completely un-stomachable. Seriously, can you imagine somebody playing this at a party?
