Friday Playlist


A distinctly summery feel permeates this week's mini-mix. The music on our stereos and in our tiny, white ear-buds shifts as temperatures rise, the humidity and sunshine steering us towards tunes fit for flip-flops, ocean shorelines and bare legged comfort. Here's a few sweet strains to help move y'all in that direction, beginning with a new one from Regina Spektor's swell new Far album. From their things bloom buoyantly with Marcy Playground and a salute to nude sunbathing (and the lucky ones who get to enjoy the golden baked benefits…) from Pavement. The second half of our assortment rolls into Camper Van Beethoven's sing-along romp about long haired lovelies and surfing followed by a wonderfully groovy number about our modern penchant for self-medication from San Jose, CA's fab The Mumlers and a swell, vibrating epilogue from excellent up-and-comers BLK JKS.

And check out last week's Playlist with Latyrx, The Hold Steady, Cheap Trick and more!
