Mixed Tape: Songs for the Road

Posted by Lindsey | July 1st, 2013 | Filed under Music, Travel, Who We Are

We’re from Portland, so when summertime comes around, we take full advantage of the outdoors—backyard bbq’s, music festivals, unexpected adventures. To keep it moving, we like to pair our favorite outdoor escapades with the right tunes to match.

Here’s a little piece of Nau to take with you, wherever the sunshine may bring you. And whatever your mood, there’s a little something for you. A summertime mix curated by us, just for you. Check out the youtube videos below or link to our continuous playlist on spotify. Enjoy.

Pairing: BBQ’ing skewers, playing cornhole with friends.

Django Django – WOR
