Make Your Ears Happy! May 26, 2016 Edition

Good day citizens of the Internet. If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard from me for awhile, I’ve been abducted by aliens in solitary confinement since May 8, listening to Radiohead’s new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, on loop. And in the off chance you haven’t seen their TWO new videos, including one directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, I threw them in at the end of the mix.

Bo Rocha - Hold my Gaze

Now that I have emerged from my musical cocoon, this ugly butterfly has some tunes to get in front of your ears. Apologies for the tunes that you’ve heard like totally yesterday, but hey, it’s not a race.
