I was going to wait to post this song later and post something a little easier on the ears instead…but let’s face it, I’m going to be posting some real interesting tracks sooner or later so you might as well start getting used to it now. Not that this song is too out there, but electro/house music just isn’t for some people, hence the 2 pill rating. I had to post this today because it came up as I was riding my bike around last night to take my mind off some things and I thought I could partially relate to the lyrics. They’re not anything unique or deep, and in fact they play a very minor part in the song as a whole, but I felt like it applied to me a bit at that time, so why not. This track comes from the young, talented, Japanese producer TeddyLoid. The kid is only 22 for heaven’s sake! He became a professional beatboxer at age 15 and has been DJing since 18, quickly gaining praise and exposure. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on any of his future releases. Fly Away was made for the soundtrack of the 2010 anime Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt...I know the name might be a little off-putting, but this is Japan we’re talking about. I’ve only seen one episode of the show, and while it had colorful, smooth animation, was funny and at times NSFW, what really caught me was the electronic soundtrack, something not commonly found in anime soundtracks. Fly Away is definitely my favorite track from the whole soundtrack. It’s super addicting and has quickly amassed play counts from me. Hope you enjoy it just as much below!

If it still doesn’t work for you let me know and I’ll try to figure out another player)
