Once there was method to my playlist madness. But when I devised my playlist for the summer, I threw out the old playbook. No longer do the songs need be released in the last three months. No longer is there a 20 song limit. If I’m feeling a song, drag and drop, enough said. You might could blame it on my post-grad mentality, but hey it’s a damn good playlist if I don’t say so myself.
It goes from light and fluffy with The Fruit Bats, Givers, and Kishi Bashi. Summer XIII dips into a more bluegrass sound with tracks from The Infamous String Dusters, and Athens’s own, The Futurebirds. There are a few jammy tunes from Widespread Panic, The Sheepdogs and My Morning Jacket, and I even experiment with more hip-hop sounds with tracks from Jurassic 5 and A$AP ROCKY. And of course it has a good number of indie tunes filled in there. No matter what kind of summer you’re having, Summer XIII should set the mood just right
