The Music Geek Track of the Week: “Treten”
by Matt Grosinger on May 25, 2012
Summer is almost upon us, and I have been getting in the spirit by skipping class, falling asleep at the beach, and generally atrophying as a driven, responsible human being. As I re-read that last sentence, my conscience told me to feel guilty, but I couldn’t help smiling at the thought of thoroughly wasting my time. Oh, well! I think, given the right climate, I would make a pretty optimistic homeless man.
So I guess this track of the week is brought to you by indolence, but complacent indolence. Imagine being a satisfied 50-year old guy with a dirty blonde beard whose sole purpose in life was to enjoy sandy feet and beach noises. “Treten,” by the Vancouver DJ Teen Daze, would be the perpetual soundtrack of that kind of lifestyle, which, during the process of writing this post, I have convinced myself to pursue.
But if you’re not like me, and atmospheric music with an accompanying video of sunsets, dolphins, and spaceships doesn’t make you want to become a deadbeat, I hope you are able to at least turn on this song over the weekend and really get comfortable somewhere tranquil.
