go explore

It’s in the 90’s today in Minneapolis, so it seems like an appropriate time to put together my Summer Soundtrack for 2016. I write this post sitting in a sunny spot outside one of my favorite coffee spots, Iced Americano in hand and my hair a humidity-induced ball of frizz. I couldn’t be in a better mood.

In most cities across the country, when the dew point surpasses 70, you’ll find everyone congregating indoors, huddled around air conditioner units. Not in Minneapolis. Up north, we take advantage of every single warm day we’re blessed with. Here are the tracks I’m using to ride this feeling and this weather. You can listen along on Spotify if you want to put a little pep in your summer step.
