Playlist: The lazy geniuses

This playlist is best enjoyed during the summer months, when days are longer and responsibilities seem far less pressing.

Talent and hard work are two very different things. Just because you’re an incredible artist doesn’t mean you have to try to be incredible: from Jeff Bridge’s “The Dude” to any photo of Joe Biden wearing sunglasses, the world loves a slacker.

Laid-back, care-free and hardly trying is an aesthetic that will never go out of style, especially in music. And that’s exactly what this playlist is here for. It’s a celebration of the half-asleep heroes: the lazy musicians curled up in their rooms, surrounded by burnt pop tarts and day-old Bud Light cans, creating pure, unadulterated magic.

These slacker-songwriters follow in the footsteps of talented deadbeats like Mac Demarco and Courtney Barnett, offering an updated take on the lethargy-rock genre.
