Daily Inspiration: The Tough Alliance, “Koka Kola Veins”

Tomorrow is my last day at FADER after four years, and I’ve been trying to think of the one song that embodies my time here. This is as close as I can come. I’ve forced every single person I’ve worked with to listen to this song at least once, so it is the common bond of many uncommon people. If you really want to see how deep it goes, find me at a bar and ask about chillwave or Panda Bear or a million other things and I will, without much effort, explain how Tough Alliance is the alpha and omega of all existence. If I remember correctly, this is the first song that made me believe that.
