Welcome back to CASUAL FRIDAYS! Our weekly, one-microphone recording series!

This week, our friend Bakari Lebby (aka sandcastles.) brings his dreamy electronic pop music down a notch into the realm of acoustic guitars and cheap Yamaha keyboard speakers. It's pretty refreshing to see mostly electronic bands successfully re-imagine their songs into real life instrument versions, and even more fun when they throw in little pop culture references and nods specifically for that. You're getting something a little extra for hunting down the alternate versions, and that's exactly what happened with this version of “Spectra.”

Sandcastles. just had a new album called “Tantrums” come out earlier this week. Give it a listen and hear the fully realized version of this song.
