I'm a total summer girl, so Labor Day weekend always feels like a sad ending to summer - a back-to-school, winding down feeling. But technically, we have a couple weeks left of summer! So my plan is to stretch out the summer vibes as long as possible. With that in mind, I asked Mr. Voigt to put together a mix for the blog (hopefully that first of many - he is the foremost authority on great music that you haven't heard yet). The objective was "songs that remind you of riding in the back of a truck looking up at the sky" - great chill songs that feel like summertime bottled and saved up for you! I've been obsessed with the new Frank Ocean album, "Blonde", which to me captures that hazy energy perfectly, and this is somehow a beautiful complement to that. Check out the list below and listen on Spotify.
