Yesterday was the Washed Out “Mister Mellow” premiere at the iconic Vista Theater and it was fantastic. I’ve been a fan of his since high school and it’s dope to see him grow as an artist over the years. What was even more fantastic was the after party at the El Cid, where he performed a DJ set. I don’t really remember much from the party, all I know is that this morning I woke up covered in cat hair and an intense craving for a breakfast burrito.
I wanted to choose tracks that expressed the exact opposite feeling of my Thursday morning hangover. This week’s tracks are all about wholesomeness, and fun. Kero Kero Bonito released the cutest, infectiously euphoric track. Pat Lok’s new album is phenomenal. Lastly, I had to throw some Vince Staples in here because I’ve heard something about Big Fish Theory every hour since it came out.
