Hashtag Summer Swag

#summerswag a new playlist at Polka Dot Cottage
I feel like I’m constantly sharing new playlists with you lately. I’m on a streak, I guess. The last two were specialty playlists (oldies, and sleepy tunes) while this one is just your average run-of-the-mill seasonal thing I like to do every couple of months.

#summerswag has a selection of mostly new-ish, mostly indie, mostly pop kinds of tunes, with a handful of older favorites thrown in for good measure. Many of the songs have Summer themes, or summer-compatible themes, while others are just there because I like them.

You can listen via the widget below, or visit 8tracks and listen to it on their site/app.

About the cover: that’s me at my grandparents’ house in upstate NY in the summer of 1973 (I think?). I was quite the fashion plate back then, between my mini football, red cowboy hat, and striped overalls. I wouldn’t be surprised if my Mom made those overalls, either. Yep, I was totally hip. Summer Swag, baby 😎
