If there’s one thing I’ve learned while reading magazines while on the toilet, it’s that you should never trust Popular Science. According to them and their sensationalist imagery, we should all be getting to work with jetpacks and turning all kinds of knobs to have our food sent to us via pneumatic tube by now. I don’t know about you, but that sounds awesome and I’m slightly disappointed. Shame on you, science.
Anyways, something I’ve always loved about those pictures was that no matter how far in the future it was supposed to depict, it always looked like it was still 1957. That’s what the theme of this mix is. It all has that retro vibe to it except all the music was made in the last few years. It’s what Judy Jetson would listen to.
