Summer Roadtrip Mix: Baa Mix 87

There is nothing like listening to a new mix right as you set out on an adventure. If you’re going to listen to one song, then it’s a tie between Fiction and There Will Be Time (Live in South Africa version, plz) because both are incredible. In fact actually, the whole Kygo album is great so just get it. Oh and the new Grouplove is pretty great. Kygo Feat. Tom Odell: Fiction (OB-SESSED. But annoyingly, this is just a snippet, and it’s ...

Baa Mix 86: Winter/Spring 2016

I was in the writing cave for the past 8 months or so, so while I was listening to music, I never had the time to put it all in one post. So this is a weird hybrid mix of stuff I’ve listened to during that time, divided into Winter and Spring. If you’re going to listen to one song—Water by Ra Ra Riot. Wait, also the Smells Like Teen Spirit cover from Freedom Fry because holy $h!t. Favorite line is from “Shovels & Dirt” by the ...
