A Playlist for Unseasonable Warmth
Posted January 23, 2017 by Taylor Peters

  1. "Gullible is Literally in the Dictionary" - Air Hockey
  2. "Free to Go" - The Sands
  3. "Florida Silver Springs" - The Impossible Shapes
  4. "Have You Seen Your Face?" - Jeb Banner
  5. "Two Ships" - Laura K. Balke
  6. "She's a Fly" - Cadmium Orange
  7. "I'm so Glad" - Apache Dropout
  8. "Moment" - Jade TV
  9. "City in Disguise" - S.M. Wolf
  10. "Save a Life with Diet Chocolate Sprite" - Everything, Now!

As I mentioned a couple weeks back, the way we're rocking our playlist game around these parts is changing up just a little, and this one here is one of the first indications that things are really shifting in earnest: our first themed playlist. 

And so: how well can you hold two conflicting notions in your head? It's thickly into January and yet I've been feeling the air creep up toward 60 degrees the last couple days. This is deeply dispiriting most of the time, for reasons you can fill in for yoursef. But for moments here and there, sometimes on Saturdays or Sundays, when you open the living room windows just a little bit, the warm air is just warm air and it feels like it's worthy of celebration. Even if just for a fragment. 

That's this playlist; it's your fragment. For ten songs, drift on memories of summer, dreamily look back at driving around in humid weather with the windows down and something mournful from Cadmium Orange (see: "She's a Fly") or absolutely bursting from Apache Dropout (see: "I'm So Glad") or a gentle sway from Laura K. Balke (see: "Two Ships") coming right at you. 

Every one of these ten songs feels like an open window to me, all in different ways. I can't do anything but act like it's the last day of summer before school starts again when I hear that Air Hockey opener. And Jade TV comes off like gauze as I look up and watch a blue sky clump with clouds. 

Float if you want, or jump up and down, or just swing on the porch; it's all chill and lovely for a little while. But don't forget that soon enough we've got to get back at it.
