"I tried hard to make a summer playlist free of the folk genre that I feel has too-long characterized the season, but in the end I just couldn’t shake the summertime folk urges. As a result of this struggle, this playlist is a mess. However, like the piles of clothes on my floor, it is an organized mess, at least in my mind. It starts with the calm, folk vibes of the land, journeys through rock, funk, and everything in between, and finally lands in the turbulent, electro tunes of the sea. May your summer be as much a roller coaster as this playlist is."
