Travelmarx Music Picks - Summer 2023

Composite image of 25 albums featured in the Travelmarx Summer 2023 playlist.

There's no theme for this playlist other than some fun songs we discovered recently. A few of the songs come from a week we spent in Lyon, France. 

Some artists we’ve been digging these days and that are represented in the playlist: Oracle Sisters (various countries), Cari Cari (Austria), Warhaus (Belgium), Alex Serra (Spain), Black Sea Dahu (Switzerland), Johnathan Jeremiah (Britain), Gizmo Varillas (Spain, Britain), and Desmond Cheese (Australia). Is it interesting that many of our “discovered” songs (a la Spotify) are not US-based? Here are 40 songs for the summer. Enjoy!  (Spotify link.)

The List 

Oracle Sisters – Tramp Like You [We are suckers for whistling. "I wanna be a tramp like you
I wanna have all my tales broken"]

Nerdstar, Chet Baker – There Will Never Be Another You [Gin tonic anyone?]
Warhaus – Desire [Smooth]
Dean Blunt, TYSON – Rinsed [Erie and likeable song.]
