This time around for our Playlist feature we tracked down Roxy rider Robin Van Gyn. While on the road to Revelstoke, she sent over 11 songs that have a little something for everyone. When asked how she’d best describe her playlist Van Gyn says, “This is a mix in the literal sense of the word.”
Smith Westerns, Smile
"Love this bands original sound, its vintage."
Sleigh Bells, Rill Rill "Makes me think of summer good times when winter gets dismal."
Lynyrd Skynyrd, Free Bird
Big Boi, Daddy Fat Sax
"Like Outkast? You'll love Big Boi."
Fleet Foxes, Lorelai
"The mellow interlude"
Kid Cudi ft. Bob Dylan, High n' Lows
"Awesome colab, Bob is the man."
Fitz and the Tantrums, Don't Gotta Work it Out
"Makes me want to dance."
The Decemberists, June Hymn
"A little country never hurt anyone."
Deer Tick, Art isn't Real
"Best live show I've seen in a bit"
Kanye West and Jay-Z, Murder to Excellence
Robyn, Call your girlfriend
"Get seriously amped."
