Vibe is a tough concept to describe, and an even tougher one to nail.

Imagine a cool drink of lemonade, or a well-timed breeze: This is a record that will handily take the edge off the most ass-clenching of hangovers, and it easily gets our vote for best thing I heard this week. Stream it below, and then I'll say a few more words about it.
