Today’s Office Jam: Guardian Alien, “See the World Given to a One Love Entity (Part 2)”

Welcome to Today’s Office Jam, where we highlight a tune someone in the Flagpole office has been digging on. Today’s jam comes via music editor Gabe Vodicka.

Gabe Vodicka’s Jam: FUUUUUUUUUUCK. Guardian Alien is awesome and ridiculous at the same time. They wear Phish t-shirts and are basically the hippie-dippiest noise band of all time. Plus, that drummer. Sweet shit. See this band live if you can.

Office Objections?: Playing it too loud to hear ’em.
