It’s gonna be an Indie Summer.

You already got your tickets to Bonaroo and Lollapalooza, you text with at least 6 very skinny guitarists on the regular, and your iPod is loaded with hundreds of songs that nobody—literally nobody—has heard. Or maybe you just secretly wish you were that cool.

Either way, kicking back to  indie music in the summertime is as essential as sunset barbecues and a highly flattering bathing suit. Enjoy this mix, pair it with some sangria in the backyard, blast in on your road trip to Tennessee, and be that cool.
