What To Listen To Now // August

Oh August.  In lieu of fun holidays like your July counterpart you usually come bearing heat waves instead.  However, we won’t hold that against you, especially since this playlist courtesy of the one and only music supervisor (at least in my eyes) Matt Mugford comes bearing so many good jams I can hardly stand it.  Dying over this JR JR jam and at least half of these songs take me back to my days of living in Austin, TX, so how can I be mad?  Let’s agree.  We won’t be mad at August instead we will soak up every last …
