Lightning Bug's exquisite new album A Color of the Sky dropped this week on Fat Possum, and for today's GvsB Sunday morning mix, LB's Audrey Kang has graced us with an eclectic, almost 2-hour-long soundtrack for your first and last day on earth, featuring songs from Nina Simone, Big Thief, Madvillain, Boards of Canada, Dilla, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, GZA, and more. Audrey explains the concept behind her mix:

"The idea is you’re an alien on earth for one day but you’re not quite sure what you even are and how long a day really is and you’re getting to know the big mess and the beauty and all the little stories that make a world a world."
