Windows Down, Volume Up: SBP’s Ultimate Summer Playlist

Tacos & Tequila


Nothing quite says summer like opening the sunroof, rolling down the windows and blasting your favorite tunes while blanketed by a soft coastal breeze. Sure, we can essentially do this any day of the year here in Los Angeles, but there’s a certain warmth in the air — a pep in our steps, a golden glow on our faces — during the dog days that makes summertime jams all the more sentimental. That’s why we’ve curated the ultimate Spotify playlist for you to enjoy these next few weeks, in addition to all of our favorite things about the season, so sit back, relax and savor the sounds of summer.
