Though it was released roughly a year ago, summertime is the perfect season to rediscover this fizzy love song from the New York group Bluffing. Radiating the big-hearted joy (and drenched in the same buckets of fuzz) as classic UK groups like the Flatmates, “Salad” is a giddy love song where evidences of affection are endearingly every day. “Make me a salad/ of all your favorite vegetables,” pleads singer Olivia Drusin in the line that gives the song its name. It’s because her desires are so down to earth that the emotion coursing through “Salad” feels so charmingly real.
