Mixtape: Nordic Summer

As we enter July, it’s common knowledge that at least here in Boston we’ve seen a lot more rain than sunshine. Looked upon by a perpetual overcast mixed with ever-lingering thunder, conditions don’t exactly have us running to the beach.

A slight chill, somber skies, omnipresent rain: Nordic regions immediately came to mind. Below is a mix created for either a rain-soaked workday or a calm weekend excursion; weather permitting, that is.
