Look, I’m not going to pretend blogging about music at a deeply weird moment like this is worthwhile, and right now I don’t think music can be much more than pure escapism. But both acts — writing and listening — offers some very slight calm in the face of vast uncertainty (or, like, at least a temporary escape from NHK looping clips from Home Alone 2 in a subtle reminder “wow, you guys really did this huh?”), and sometimes you need temporary escape. So…here is some borderline cartoon-theme music courtesy of Maltine Records, featuring a lot of talented people. Temporary sugar rush? Yeah, but I imagine we could all use it. Get it here.
