All of the Things: Odesza

"Imagine for a moment that interstellar travel was not only possible, but widely accessible, and you could take a couple days off to explore distant planets. You’d try to find the most beautiful one, right? (Well, after you found the one most resembling Tatooine with it’s double sunsets.) If you found one that was composed … Continue reading All of the Things: Odesza

Not unlike Lana Del Ray, it also made me wonder how her voice would sound in a mix of bright synths and thumping bass of house. Well, Griffin and Hotel … Continue reading frankles free fridays
