Even though it’s been summer in LA since, well, always, the sweetest season of them all has finally swept the rest of the country with long days, humid temps, sweet romance and road trips. The months of July and August seem to be wrapped in a magical haze, so we believe this sultry season deserves an equally bewitching soundtrack to enhance it.
We’ve curated a series of playlists to guide you through summer’s many moods and moments – from summer love to vacation days, road trips to heat waves. We’ll be releasing one a week throughout the season. All you have to do is press play and let the summer magic begin.
