A playlist for spring weather meeting indoor obligations


Last Saturday was Record Store Day, did you know that?

I knew that AND managed to sleep through it.

In a vague sort of belated celebration, here’s a playlist that’s been on repeat in my office. My workdays over the last week have been all kinds of over the place — from filling embroidery orders, tedious book-keeping, de-constructing furniture that used to live in my office to late-night vector drawing sessions — and these songs encompass the ups and downs and sideways-es of my April so far.

You can stream the playlist here on Grooveshark!

Also! I’ve been especially obsessed with Thao & the Get Down Stay Down’s newest album We the Common (and the rest of her albums, which are many and have an infinite number of naming variations) — the album was the soundtrack for the weather-blessed camping trip I took to Point Reyes last week. Listen to the whole thing when you get a chance, yes? And read about the incredible story of the album in Thao’s words.
