Even though the cabin trip is officially in the books it’s been lodged in my head for the past two days. So I thought I’d dedicate a couple more songs to my recent great weekend in a cabin trip centric #2ForTuesday. First up is Oblivion by Grimes.
I downloaded this track a couple of weeks back and instantly connected with its sparse, electronic minimalism and flighty vocals. But I really came to love it when I watched the accompanying video on YouTube. The combination of drunken hooligans and homoeroticism sums up the cabin trip nicely.
Next up is Get Free by Major Lazer.
I’ve been looking forward to the sophomore album from these two superstar DJs since 2009, and here I finally have a sneak peek. And in an odd twist, they recruited the singer from one of my other favorites from 2009, Amber from The Dirty Projectors, for the debut track. The accompanying video is a real bonus in that it sums up how I’m feeling at the moment. Major Lazer is contemplating the amount of ass he just kicked while he rests. I hear ya, brah, I hear ya.
