Alison’s Weekenders playlist, Vol. 1: Empire of the Sun, Crystal Fighters, WALLA, Haerts ++
Lady Summer has finally smacked cold-hearted Boston in its smugly gloom New England grillpiece, so this weekend should be perfect for cookouts, beach bumming, and extended road trips to the far reaches of Massachusetts and beyond.
To provide you all with the proper soundtrack, Boston-based music tastemaker Alison D’Arrigo has curated this Vanyaland weekenders Soundcloud mix, featuring new music from Small Black, WALLA, Say Lou Lou, Empire of the Sun (pictured above), Haerts, and a bunch of other stuff running through her head these days.
Plug it in and style your weekend in sweet sound.
