This Month’s Mixtape: Sunny in September

By now, summer’s long gone and but a faint memory as you’re stuck in school, stressed, or bored. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with not one, but two playlists while you watch the incoming September sky and feel the vanishing summer sun.

Perfect for those lonely minutes of midnight procrastination or just simple afternoons of free time to pass, the first playlist has a selection of downbeat tracks including the soulful swoonings of Sylvan Esso’s “Coffee”, the twinkling etherealness of Flume’s “Sleepless (ft. Jezzabell Doran)”, the mellow R&B vocals of FKJ’s Learn to Fly (ft. Jordan Rakei), and the eclectic yet earthy sounds of Mount Kimbie’s “Before I Move Off”. After listening to this playlist curated by our staff, you’ll definitely be humming in your chair while relaxing from a tiring day of school.

Though if you’re really desperate for some summer beats, then the second playlist, packed with upbeat and dynamic tracks, is your best bet as it ranges from the quirky and catchy “Left Hand Free” of Alt-J to the grotesque guitar mess within Sweet Valley’s “Total Carnage” to the nostalgically playful Foster the People’s “Best Friend”, with all songs fully capturing the restless summer spirit of reckless fun.
