Since we know this quarantine life has gotten to everyone who isn’t a filthy rich inhumane billionaire, we thought we’d drop some music on you to improve the status quo.
San Francisco’s Doctor Popular has been putting out funkwirky [sic] chip-hop tunes for awhile now. And since everyone’s been inside playing video games, chiptune seems a logical soundtrack.
Unlike his other albums, though, Quarantined Beats (and Inside Voices) is rife with guest vocalists and a level of production even higher than the Doc’s usual output. Recorded all in the month of May 2020 and finished the day before George Floyd’s murder, it’s a great snapshot of that wonderful America in which the most important thing was finding toilet paper. Plus, he has cool music videos.
