Happy Saturday! We have a little something different for you today, our very first shop playlist! As I am sure you know, we spend a large portion of our weekends working on home renovation or DIY projects in the house or in our garage/shop. Half of the time we work on projects are the fun times where we are designing, creating, building or installing which requires us channeling creativity and the other times are those monotonous grunt work tasks that are necessary such as cutting, roughing up and staining what feels like a million boards. I’m looking at you reading nook wood wall.
About 95% of the time we work, we have music playing the background. We pretty much rely on it to give us a boost in inspiration as we create or to pump us up and motivate us to get through all the manual labor undertakings.
We are always on the hunt for new music to sing horribly off key to while we work. Brent and I create a playlist in Spotify and then both add tracks to it during the week when we stumbled across new songs that we like or find old songs that bring back a wave of nostalgia. (One of these days I might work an N*SYNC song in just to catch him off guard.) Then, we both enjoy listening to the songs we collect as we work together on our projects during the weekend. Luckily, we have a very similar taste in music so there is no fighting or running to hit the skip button (unless “Bye, Bye, Bye” ever makes the cut then I can guarantee that will happen).
We thought it would be fun to share the music we are playing in our shop each month. Here is what we are currently enjoying:
01 YOUNG FATHERS | TYPHOON
02 LIVE ON | DELTA SPIRIT
03 FOOL FOR LOVE | LORD HURON
04 THE WOLF | MUMFORD & SONS
05 OPEN MY EYES | THE GOSPEL WHISKEY RUNNERS
06 VIOLENTLY WILD | HORSE FEATHERS
07 AIRPLANES | LOCAL NATIVES
08 FADER | THE TEMPER TRAP
09 STEP OUT | JOSE GONZALES
