Mixed Feelings is a weekly Sunday column featuring whatever music I’ve been listening to this week. A blend of new and old, these are the songs I recommend accompany you on your daily run (if that’s your thing, more power to you), while you deal with manspreading on the train, or whatever you do throughout your week.
Sounds like: that pure kind of summer heat when the humidity is low and you take your shoes off to dance in the sprinklers to fast, heavy beats. Pair with: the tightest pair of shorts or jeans you own
Last week’s playlist was borne out of hope (futile, futile hope) that summer was ending and fall was on its way. This week’s playlist instead reluctantly embraces these last few weeks of summer. Also, Frank Ocean’s Blonde is now on Spotify!
