4 Lanes to the Coast

This weekend, I decided to go back home. I hadn’t seen the fam in a while, and it was my little brother’s birthday. On the way there, I decided I should make a playlist about it. I’ve also been wanting to make one of those beginning-is-the-end-is-the-beginning lists. So, I combined them.

Really, going home was just a starting point…at some points it was really tough to make it work and sound cohesive. I think it turned out pretty well, though. Tell me what you think! and enjoy some cover art.
