MIXTAPE: Say ‘Hello’ to Springtime

Spring is a strange season; one day you’ve got sunshine and flowers, the next you’ve got grey skies and the sniffles. It’s a funny in-between season where you’re not quite sure if you should whip out your sneakers or your rain boots. Regardless, spring makes us happy that winter is finally over, but makes us anxious for it to be summer already.

Some days are warm, bright and sunny and make us want to stroll through town, while others are cold, grey and rainy and make us want to stay inside and gaze dramatically out the window. If it’s a gorgeous sunny day, then hit play and listen to Side A. This side is filled with happy-go-lucky tracks that are sure to put a spring in your step. If it’s raining cats and dogs outside, flip over to Side B and cozy up indoors. Enjoy!
