The Five O’Clock Playlist is a bi-monthly curated and rotating mix of 13 tracks for the daily routine of winding-down. In lieu of my previous mixes I shared on this blog, this new format will allow for a single email once every other month featuring a blend of old and new music perfectly pairing with the exhalation of the day.

Music for Year’s End 2015

YE15-COVER
In closing 2015, I coupled the fall and winter seasons into a single, hour-long, year-end playlist. Culled from my favorite releases from this past year, it’s intentionally devoid of vocals and lyrics to allow room for true listening, introspection, remembrance and dreaming. I trust that this finds you thankful and hopeful for your life and those lives around you. Happy holidays. I love you.

Music for Summer 2015


Proud to at long last reveal the 17th seasonal playlist. The Summer 2015 playlist is in special collaboration with Teranishi. Teppei and I met several years ago via the internet and then became real life friends with our many connections with music, skateboarding and design. Leigh and I also visited his studio a while back on Vashon Island for a piece on FvF. Hope you enjoy these new tracks specifically curated to score a perfect summer.
