Just a few minutes more

Stretching the definition of the one-man band
Vancouver is currently experiencing its warmest January ever, almost 4° C above usual. This will be remembered as the year that puddle jumping became an official Olympic sport. Thanks, El Niño (which, for those of you who don’t hablas Español, is Spanish for “The Niño”).

Here’s some unseasonably summery music from Spirit Spine, a laptop pop artist from Bloomington, Indiana. While much of his work sounds like ’80s-indebted guitar pop, the loop-heavy “Slept Away” comes off like Panda Bear, minus the obvious Brian Wilson-isms. Featuring a cyclical keyboard motif and reverb-swathed vocals, it’s a dreamy way to pass the time until we can all go sunbathing again (February, or whenever).
