If you look up "super chill" in the dictionary its probably not there. If you look up "super chill" in my version of the dictionary there's a picture of Blue Hawaii. And as a second definition there's probably something around the lines of a ground hog sitting on a giant plush couch smoking a joint.

Taking it back to 1999 with this Pinback track. I'm trying to remember what I was probably doing when this album came out. Lets see.. I was 16, a candy raver, and driving my riced out Acura Integra all over Washington DC. If 29 year old me played this album for 16 year old me he'd probably ask "where's the break down and the synths? And do you have any ecstasy? Did you see Dragon Ball Z today?! ...about that ecstasy..." My taste in music was pretty out there.. I kept the cassette tape of the Akira soundtrack in my car on repeat. I suppose that's embarrassing?

A personal favorite returns with a new album - Beta Love. After spending some time with this album I can say it leaves me wanting something. Their previous album "The Orchard" was one of my favorites from 2010 so obviously I hold them at a pretty high standard. Perhaps losing their incredibly sexy cellist Alexandra Lawn plays a pretty big part in this. After all.. their previous music was driven by symphonic strings which have all been replaced by synths in this current release.
With that said.. I'll leave you with a picture of Alexandra Lawn -because I can.
