GvsB Modern Yacht Rock // Summer 2016 Mixtape


With the recent return of Sirius XM’s glorious seasonal yacht rock channel, we were inspired to compile this mixtape of modern soft rock, sophistipop, vaporwave, balearic pop, cosmic funk, and smooth hypnogogic jams from the past decade or so that would fit seamlessly in the station’s rotation, or alongside the legends Fleetwood Mac, Loggins & Messina, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Toto, et al. on any yacht rock playlist. Shimmering and soothing summer-ready FM radio vibes for the weekend, with a nod to classic yacht rock’s darker and weirder undertones. Listen/download + check the full tracklist below:
