Getting Into That Beach Frame of Mind

21 Jun

What’s a beach trip without music? As we all get ready for the upcoming 4th of July celebration, we’re curious what everyone is listening to when lounging on the beach with a cold drink in hand?

I have a collection of songs in a Spotify playlist that I’ve dubbed “Beach Drink” and serves as a good jumping off point when festivities begin for my own liking, but I want to add to it.

Lately for me, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is a band I can put on and not have to worry about skipping through songs.They’re probably most widely known for their song “S.O.B.”, a song everyone equates to a raucous drinking good time but is actually about Rateliff’s own struggle with sobriety.

My favorite of theirs at the moment is “Howling at Nothing,” a soulful three minute song that feels like something out of the 1960’s.

Other favorites from the playlist below are:

Upbeat
Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That – Robert Randolph & The Family Band
You Don’t Have to Believe Me – Eric Hutchinson
Jackson – Carolina Chocolate Drops

That Beach Feel
At The Beach – The Avett Brothers
Watermelon – Sol Driven Train
Three Little Birds – Bob Marley & The Wailers

Winding down the day/night
El Camino – Amos Lee featuring Willie Nelson
Hold On – Alabama Shakes
The Gardener – The Tallest Man on Earth

What’s that song/band that puts you in beach/drinking mood?
