Staff Mix No. 5: Walking Through Smog

In this hazy mix, the deeper you go the less you can “see.”

This spring, a thick blanket of wildfire debris descended upon my beloved New York City; I would describe it as lightly apocalyptic and heavily concerning for the environment. Since scientists have said that spending 24 hours breathing the ash-clogged air is the equivalent of smoking six cigarettes, consider this one-hour playlist inspired by the event to be a long sonic drag. The songs are rooted in minimal but effective compositions, and as you venture deeper into the smog (playlist), the harder it becomes to see (hear): songs become more sluggish and sparse the deeper you listen.
