Projectionists at work

Quiet hands,
charged with electricity;
let them reach out and heal this planet.
Smartly, stirring, and slowly shifting,
swiftly set into motion on a spinning reel.


After a prolonged windy, wet start to spring, Toronto will finally see sunshine. The best part about it is the stained air, a result of endless rainwater evaporating from the depths of our lawns. The following albums emulate it perfectly:

Through its more traditional forms, baroque pop intertwines the warmth of string arrangements, hazy twee, and soulful vocal melodies. If it were embodied by a person, they would be unimaginably introverted and difficult to interact with. Wait, check out Braids's Native Speaker as well.
