It’s BBQ season, and no backyard party is complete without the right soundtrack. That’s why we asked Merge Records to put together a summer playlist that’s the perfect complement to hot dogs and sunblock. Fire-up the grill and listen below! And if you don’t have Spotify yet, it’s free to download.
To start the mix, we wanted to find songs that either were specifically about the sun/spring/summer or that conveyed a feeling of those things. As the playlist continues, the weather changes and the rain comes, but it’s not a bad thing – it just changes the mood from a lazy, carefree day to more of a party, which how we thought the day should end.
