With all the weird weather we’ve been having, this new wave of sunshine is exactly what I was waiting for. Here is a playlist to kick start the summer, reveal the new blog design, and celebrate MUSIC BETWEEN FRIENDS being added as an Off The Grid blog for Toronto’s new mega-website THE GRID.
Katie and I have been contributing to the blog for over a year now and what started as a venue for us to share songs/bands that we were listening to among friends, is now looking like a real music blog. Kind of? Anyways, this playlist has some personal classics as well as new songs from bands I’m loving right now like Cults and Sleigh Bells.
01 The Shins - Sleeping Lessons
02 Gorillaz - Pirate Jet
03 Timber Timbre - Until the Night is Over
04 Sleigh Bells - Kids
05 The Kills - Future Starts Slow
