If you have been reading Summer Wind in the past few weeks, then you know that I have absolutely been itching for warmer weather (see here and here). Well, it has finally arrived and I never want it to leave! It is so liberating to go coat-less or need to blast the heat in the car. It's the little things, right?
I have an hour commute in the mornings and evenings during the week which is a bit of a pain, but it's nice to be able to decompress. In the mornings, I drive into the city and one day it was so warm and sunny, I couldn't help but be anything but happy. Well, there are songs that are so perfect for this weather and I just have to share what I've been listening to lately. One song in particular, Dissolve Me by Alt-J is my new go-to song. It is upbeat but definitely different and not something that a radio station would play... definitely one of my top favorites as of right now. It's one of those songs where you just want to roll the windows down and turn the volume up. See past playlists here, here, here, here , here and here.

As you can tell, I'm loving a little bit of everything! An app that I love for iPhone is the 8 Tracks app. It's kind of like Pandora but the playlists are created by the users. It is how I have been discovering songs I would never normally find. You could be listening to an average playlist and then out of the blue, you'll catch and epic song. When I find a song I like, I screen shot it and then download songs in bunches, at a later time.
What have you been listening to lately? I'm always looking for suggestions.
Have a fabulous day!
