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.
Impromptu Vegas Trip
One of the many perks about summer in LA is the very feasible possibility of hopping in the car at any given moment and spending a weekend in Vegas. Sure you could throw your teeny tiny dresses in the trunk and fire up the Tiesto Pandora station, but it would be a shame to let miles of stunning desert beauty get lost in unce-unce, fist pumping and beat drops. For a slightly more textured alternative, turn up the volume on our Vegas Baby playlist as you cruise through the desert and get into the Sin City spirit:
