CMJ's End Of Summer Playlist :(

CMJ’s End Of Summer Playlist :(

At the risk of putting a damper on your Friday, it’s time to admit that summer is, for all intents and purposes, over. Sure, your calendar says you have a few more weeks, but the days are getting shorter and cooler, and soon you’ll go back to classes and books (if you haven’t already). But it’s not all bad news! The coming of fall also means the coming of CMJ Music Marathon and the end of the summer album release slump.
 
But we understand that the dusk of summer is a delicate time, and so we’ve created a soundtrack to reflect that. In the 50-track playlist below, you’ll hear everything from raucous summer bangers to wide-eyed electro-pop to dawning folk nostalgia. The tracks are even ordered so that the playlist moves in a descending order of happiness: start out jumping in your leg warmers with Charli XCX and end with a somber musing on the ungraspable passage of time with Mas Ysa.
