gvsb_yacht_2018

Presenting the third installment in our series of annual modern yacht rock summer mixtapes: As always, we’re expanding the yacht rock universe here to include more modern sounds inspired by those classic easy listening FM-gold guilty pleasures of the late '70s and early '80s, while occasionally veering off into balearica, pillowy soft funk, sophisti-pop, long-lost obscurities, exotica, and darker forms of hypnogogia. Listen/download + check the full tracklist below:
