On the lighter side, Reina del Cid -- who produced one of my favorite albums of 2015 -- has released a new single for the summer. Taking a different tack from The Cooling's gothic midwest pop, "Lover, Be Mine" is an impromptu, reggae-inspired jam. del Cid played the song at a show without rehearsing the band first. Once they jumped in, they knew they had to record the final product. So here's to remembering that there's lightness and joy in the world.
