Featured Song: 「Ｃ Ａ Ｎ Ｔ Ｉ」- human music.
Rick and Morty is one of the oddest and most surreal animated shows that’s currently on TV. The Adult Swim show follows an alcoholic scientist named Rick and his grandson Morty as they travel through the depths of space on various adventures. With only two seasons on its belt, the show has grown a huge cult following, with fans making references to it whenever they can, even in music.
Canti (stylized as 「Ｃ Ａ Ｎ Ｔ Ｉ」) does his take on a very basic song from the episode “M. Night Shaym-Aliens!”. The episode includes a part of Morty’s dad, Jerry, being stuck in a simulation without him noticing. The aliens play two basic notes on a radio, calling it “human music,” which Canti samples in spades, adding on warm and smooth chords, along with a grainy and well syncopated lo-fi drum beat. Add that and the gliding synth melody at the end, and you get a song that even someone who isn’t a Rick and Morty fan can enjoy.
And at just about 100 followers as of the time of writing this, Canti is truly representative of all that we stand for here at Secret Shores – unique, totally unheralded talent. Don’t sleep.
Show Canti some love:
