March Playlist

The first day of spring has officially come and gone, and while in some areas it may not feel like we're getting closer to summer, science-type people assure us we definitely are. March is a strange, transitional month - so we put together a bit of a manic, up and down playlist to help with those mornings where it's sunny out, but also 15 degrees. 

Echosmith - Cool Kids
Local Natives - Camera Talk
The Morning Benders - Cold War
Breton - Envy
The Front Bottoms - Twin Size Mattress
Into It. Over It. - Spinning Thread
So Many Dynamos - Analysis Paralysis
Wildcat! Wildcat! - Mr. Quiche
Max Frost - White Lies
Real Estate - Talking Backwards

February Playlist

They say all the best songs are breakup songs. That must make this our worst set of tracks ever - 'cause this month's playlist is for gettin' cozy. Especially our snowbound friends all over the country. 

Play a few of these and you might get lucky like a couple of French robots. DJs? Robots? We're not sure what they want to be called anymore. 

Wilco (wsg Feist) - You and I
Daft Punk - Something About Us
Blackbird Blackbird - Happy With You
Elliot Smith - Say Yes
Dawes - Someone Will
Blind Pilot - 3 Rounds and a Sound
Citizen Cope - Sideways
Yo La Tengo - Our Way to Fall
Low - Sunflower
Best Coast - Crazy for You

XOXO
Cushe

Road Trippin'

 

Summer weekends are the perfect opportunity to make a mini escape from the workweek. It doesn’t matter where you are located; chances are you have a fresh destination within a few hours drive. We have a few pointers to make your next blacktop adventure a little more memorable… maybe even challenging. 

Pick a spot you’ve never been, or take a road you’ve never travelled. Road trips are all about discovery – taking the same path to the same end point… kind of missing the point.

Keep the tech to a minimum. Ditch the GPS, and keep the phone in your pocket. Use a paper map - available at any gas station next to some amazing sunglasses and a selection of camo trucker hats. Actual trucker hats. Your dad and grandpa will be proud. 

Music. Is. Key. Keeping with the minimal tech concept, make mix CDs or dare we say… tapes? Last weekend’s trip for us included tracks from Disclosure, Bastille, and Geographer. Protip: Always have Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” ready to go if you need to infuse some energy into the drive. It never fails. 

Take detours. The point is to discover something fun. World’s Largest Ball of Twine an hour off the highway? Scenic overlook on the next exit? Take a quick side adventure. Sometimes the little things turn into the biggest memories. 

Taking off solo? Cool. Bringing some friends? Double cool. Pick your team wisely though. If you have a friend who needs an itinerary for Saturday morning breakfast, they might night be on the spontaneity A-Team. We're planning a few more weekenders before summer comes to a close - where are you heading?

3 Lists We Kinda Love Right Now

One of our favorite things about the internet - aside from banana slicer shopping - is looking at lists. "The Top 56 Photos of Cats in Sinks", "23 of the Best Ways to Wear Jorts in Winter", "34 Clouds that Look Like Sharks Juggling Chainsaws"... all fantastic. Here are three very real, very awesome lists we're digging:

The Most Beautiful Outdoor (music) Venues in America

The Best Craft Beer Tap Handles in America

The Best Iconic American Road Trips

3 Songs on Repeat: Poolside Edition

OK - full disclosure, this post is built on lies. We were totally listening to more than three songs this past weekend, but "186 Songs in a Playlist" was just going to end up being too long of an update. You don't wanna read it, and we don't wanna write it. Besides, three is a fun number, a magic number, and it's a challenge to pick just three songs that encapsulate the vibe of a day. By the way, this weekend, we had no luck in making it to the beach, but we did make it to a pool. So here are three jams that helped create a daytime disco while we were kicking back in some Cushe Time next to the diving board.
