Riff: Tera Melos – “Snake Lake” (Busdriver Remix feat. Milo)

Oct 23, 2013

I’m 14 still/And every morning is marked by an acne pill/Don’t aks me what my paintings mean/I’m an angst machine, it’s Franken-me

from Snake Lake (Busdriver Remix feat. Milo) lyrics by Tera Melos

Busdriver‘s remix turns this already daydreamy trip into a “knapsack”-rap celebration of adult pubescence and nerdiness – lyrically unique with Milo‘s alternative-rap flair (and NMH reference), coupled with the original song’s psychedelic sunset feel. Super groovy and accessible.
