Five odes to sticky, skunky bud, in honor of 4-20

Though I’m fronting for the stoner anthem, I mean no disrespect. I don’t mean to degrade a song’s appeal by suggesting its only functional level is a song you can smoke a joint to — a song only enjoyable when the edges of one’s own perception have become a little frayed. In fact, the songs I’ve chosen, by all means, are rather enjoyable in any state. But these textures do dwell within the sensibilities of the stoned, songs that have layers of musicality without ever delivering jarring, buzz-unfriendly textures.
