Trippy pop music, male vox. Whack production, like listening to bootleg "Smile" outtakes (or Ant-Bee or Muttongun). Experiments and good songs, just not "finished". This is something else. It’s an acquired taste. I’ll listen to it a lot.

+1. Minute long. Springtime singing, happy handclapping
++2.Upbeat synthpop goes to trance inducing drum, then sparse singing, then glitchpop
3.Heavy drum hits, loop of an LP’s pop, then video game inspired 8-bit synth
4.bass echo soundscape, electric piano chords and noodling
+5.Self-harmonizing vocals, psychedelic. Abrupt end :-(
++6.Synth and human vocals, marching beat, catchy, semi-glitch music
7.short. sounds moving a washing machine/robot farts.
8.marching band drums. Wishing well. Would be great to fill out this song.
+9.whistling and faraway vocals, trumpet, old synth earns a full "Smile Outtake"
+10.glitchy instrumental
11.Island music guitars conflict with fast synths, then a quiet heartfelt end
12.videogame music
13.speedy synth loop, then drugged 70’s synths & vox- Trevor Horn outtake?
+14.1st half fast synth, 2nd half could be Magnetic Fields singing & acoustic guitar
