"I started listening to “Rewind” (the Echo Mountain Sessions version) by Sylvan Esso in the middle of a work day and it just really made me feel like sitting outside at dusk admiring the sky. Perhaps on a porch with a swing, a light warm breeze, low humidity, and very minimal bugs (they’re the biggest buzzkill - pun intended). I’ve also been over winter and am really excited for evenings outside again!
Every song picked after that is meant to just give you the feel-good comfort of being outside on a warm night. I’m especially happy with the transition from The 1975’s “Loving Someone” into Alabama Shakes’ “Sound & Color” and overall want the listener to feel soothed with some sparks of energy sprinkled in. The porch light is on, come hang out!"
