Journey to the wine haven and rolling hills of California with our November monthly mix, inspired by our recent weekend getaway to Los Alamos. Located just north of Santa Barbara, Los Alamos is a small but mighty town with the most welcoming people, gourmet food, and selection of drinks. With a little help and ambience from a relaxing night of sitting fireside on a blanket in the grass at Bodega, we have pieced together a warm, kick back and relax fall mix perfect for the season.

Monthly Mix: August

Unlike most of our summer playlists, the August mix is a little more somber and for the first time in official Monthly Mix history, has been bestowed a title. Too Hot to Care is the vibe of music and beats that keep it mellow enough to survive the scorching heat that could melt a cactus. Listen and chill out with some hot days and nights in that oh so comforting air conditioning with this mellow journey through the hottest month of the year. Listen below or stream on Spotify.
