season recap

Today marks the last day of summer. Another season come and gone. Throughout the sunny mornings, bonfire nights and moments lakeside this summer we’ve been pinning our seasonal findings. And today, the final 24 hours before autumn, we’re sharing them with you. Breathe one last salty breath, break out the sandals on final time and dust of the sweaters. We’re onto the next.

When we first started compiling playlists they involved a cassette player and some seriously smooth record/pause button timing, a Sharpie labeling system (almost as rigorous as the record/pause debacle), custom artwork and a well worn jewel case. Somewhere between the cracked cases, the dried up markers and the car we drove in high school, those playlists we poured hours into have become obsolete. And, on a much quicker timeline, the playlists we originally posted on this blog have suffered the same fate. Well, fear not! Over the next few months we’re going to be reviving playlists of faucethead past and uploading them to Spotify for your listening pleasure.

First up: Soul Blues Classics Volume 1. The same gut wrenching, heart pleading, deep soul we admired in September of 2011 is back today and just as well suited to this Autumn as it was then. Would you agree?

1 // Bold Soul Sister – Ike & Tina Turner
2 // I Learned My Lesson – Willie Davis
3 // Goodbye My Love – James Brown
4 // If You Want Me To Stay – Sly & the Family Stone
5 // How Long – Charles Bradley (feat. Menahan Street Band)
6 // Ease Back – The Meters
7 // Express Yourself – Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band
8 // How Long Do I Have To Wait For You – Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
9 // Green Onions – Booker T. & the M.G.’s
10 // Could Have Been – Lee Fields

Maybe you didn’t notice but in 2011 something started happening in the world of photography and blogging and it changed the game. Cinemagraphs arrived on the scene thanks to Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg and for four years now we’ve been following this revolution of sorts. Gone are the days of clunky, inconsistent loops and silly GIFs. Cinemagraphs are more mature, polished and, frankly, beautiful. Check out a few of our all-time favorites below and keep an eye out for the future of these little looping wonders. We think they’ve got big things in store.
