playlist // spring awakening 18

I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.
– David Hockney

To us, Spring is more than the show of colors and bluer skies [though that’s a lot of it]. It’s something within us, a new outlook, a brighter mood, a chance to make new connections… an awakening. So here’s to that new outlook, that new chance, and to you reading this – here’s to you. Thank you for all you do and share.

playlist // late summer 17

Late Summer, here in the states, means warm nights filled with the sounds of cicadas and a wash of sunlight that lasts well into the night. It’s a bittersweet time as we fight to hold onto the irreverence and lightheartedness of Summer while preparing to go back to school. It‘s a season of final road trips and last kisses.

So, “rage rage against the dying of the light!” Run, dance, swim, drive – do everything you can to float in these evenings of long shadows.

Early Summer

While Spring finishes repainting Winter our hearts, minds [and attention spans] adjust for Summer.

To us Summer isn’t simply a season, another trip around the sun, it’s more of an exotic location – a destination full of color and light. So let us create, swim, drive, run, kiss, and close our eyes to feel the wind that blows just for us. Let us awaken and fight for our causes, let our best ideas fly, and reclaim our childlike awe.

Early Spring

No matter where you reside, it’s safe to say that this winter has been strange – at least when it comes to the weather. In most locations, we’ve all stolen a few glimpses of Spring-like weather, but let’s not be confused by this atmospheric aperitif. Spring… true Spring fills our glasses back to half-full, it wakes us a little earlier with the songs of birds, and it fills us with a new energy. This is the season where our surroundings get a verdant remodeling and our hearts get a vibrant rejuventaion. Our new early Spring playlist was created to keep us in the spirit of this season of unfurling chrysalises. It was created to accompany working, learning, driving, creating, kissing, running, sipping, and dancing. We hope you enjoy the new studio playlist and to sweeten the deal – we’ve added frogs!

Early Winter

With a cold breeze blowing over most of the States and many front doors barricaded from the outside by towers of Amazon boxes — we’re all settling in. Early winter is tough for me, there’s always an underlying priority of obligation over gratitude. It’s important to slow down, pause a moment, and be mindful for ourselves as much as everyone else trying to get by [and stay warm]. So to slow things down, here are 14 tracks to use as a soundtrack to the beginning of a cold season. Though not all of them are slow [that would be a drag] and we hope they all fade from one to another in the background of your lives as seamlessly as they do here in the studio. Most of all, we hope you enjoy them because we’re grateful that you are listening.
