luv459 Everything Will Probably Be Alright

Everything Will Probably Be Alright

everything you know is wrong. everything good is bad and everything bad is good. also, nobody cares.
phew! isn’t that a relief! ‘cos if nothing really matters than all of the expectations and societal pressures we put ourselves under to constantly perform and produce also don’t matter! there’s a kind of freedom to this notion of “cheery nihilism”.
here’s a mix that attempts to cover our collective existential dread in a veil of musical whimsy. enjoy the beauty you can find and revel in life’s absurdities because if nothing matters why wouldn’t you?
