Beautiful in its lo-fi honesty, rapper/singer Miles Meraki’s “Hwudor” feels like a transmission from a teenage boy’s bedroom to the girl of his dreams—a John Hughes movie filtered through sad boy hip-hop and digital art aesthetics. Like a self-deprecating Tumblr set in motion, the video for “Hwudor” lends sad humor and self-awareness to Meraki’s otherwise earnest singing—an oddly intoxicating, effective balance. There’s a larger treatise (probably to be written by fellow P&P staffer Joe Price) about the Internet, disconnection in the age of infinite interconnectedness, and what that means for old fashioned romance; for now, lose yourself in Meraki’s glitchy, daydream love.
