nobody likes traveling without a little music to accompany them at some point along the way. and when i say nobody, i mainly mean myself. i don’t like going anywhere without my headphones in and my spotify app blowing out my eardrums. recently i was lucky enough to join some friends on a trip to costa rica, and that means lots of time in airports, on airplanes, and in customs lines. the only proper way i know to combat the misery that inevitably accompanies those things is to make a superior playlist that will keep you calm and in control (and maybe even help you take a nap on the plane). this playlist will do just that, even if you’re not going anywhere. filled with mostly new songs from mostly off-the-radar bands, this playlist will expose you to some songs you weren’t aware of, and may even provide a little inspiration you’ve been looking for lately.
