It’s summer here in the northern hemisphere, and things are slowly opening up after the long pandemic lockdowns. This episode has been a few weeks in the making, and includes new and upcoming retrofuturistic jazz and electronic music, a smattering of ambient and soft synth arpeggios, and closing out with the dramatic post-rock of veterans Fly Pan Am.
