3/19/15: Spring Break Music


Last week was spring break around here at SCAD-Atlanta. Just a week, but it feels more like two days. Not enough time to truly rest, just barely enough time to recover. A friend and I spontaneously decided we had to get to the water, so we drove until we hit the ocean. Two nights on the beach was just what we needed. On the drive back, with her help, I decided that some spring break music was what I should play on the Fuzz Factory that night. Therefore, the playlist was constructed in a quite spontaneous manner and filled with a slightly lighter sound than usual. Consider it the playlist for the picture above.

Spring Break Music = upbeat (and often uplifting) power pop and rock music with a nod to the sun, sunshine and happiness.

This week I’ll be featuring Adam Franklin of Swervedriver. What a great concert that was Monday night!
