5 Favorite Spotify PlaylistsTuesday, August 02, 2016
Around here, there's almost always music playing. I love playing records from our new console, but sometimes the convenience of technology wins out and I'll turn bluetooth on to play a Spotify playlist from my phone. Here are a few of my favorites that have been on rotation lately.
I've always struggled to define the kind of music I like, and then I found this playlist that perfectly encapsulated the genres I'm drawn to. From now on, I'm calling my music style "new retro" and recommending this playlist to anyone looking for great new music.
Just Smile — Come on, man. Just smile!
This is such a perfect collection of songs for chilling out on a summer afternoon. It has a very mellow, beachy vibe. I like to turn this playlist on while we're fixing dinner and pretend we've just come in from the beach.
Rockin' Vibes — The best in folk, rock, and indie
While this playlist includes a lot of the same artists as The New Retro playlist, it definitely has a more rock vibe. It's great for those times when you want a constant beat to keep you energized.
Newport Folk Festival 2016
I've loved listening to this playlist and discovering some new artists. One of these days, I would love to attend this Rhode Island festival.
Swagger — These sexy, high-drama roots and Americana tracks pack some serious swagger
Whoever named this playlist did an excellent job. Swagger is the perfect word to describe these songs. It's very foot-stompy and perfect if you're in the mood for turning something up very loud and drowning in some bass.
