Come down.

26 Feb

What have you been filling your head with these days? I bet you it’s synthetic. Electronic. Recycled (plastic) goodies? Well, it’s time to come back down to earth; back to your roots. I’m here to give it to you. That Motel de Moka(esque) post to cure you of your synthetic illness, at least temporarily. For a not so obnoxious transition back into “alternia,” here are some tracks that have been keeping me from falling into total electronic hysteria.
