Bedroom Pop

Written by Caleb Oldham

The bedroom is a sacred place. It's a shrine to lost hours, boredom, but most importantly, self-discovery. To the dismay of parents who told their children to "go outside and play," for most of us, the bedroom was a place where identity could be forged. Free from the scrutiny of the outside world, we found ourselves inside endless rabbit-hole Wikipedia searches or sheltered creative endeavors. More than the candy of lo-fi-lovers, bedroom pop represents this rare haven of freedom. The songs on this playlist are the ones that make me think of 3:30 am, personal diaries, and all the creative fervor that goes hand in hand with having your own space.
