Here’s what we’ve been listening to:
“Call It What You Want” – Foster The People
Fun alternative track to listen early on while setting up the campsite, prepping food, and getting settled in.
A perfect song for chillin’ by the campfire.
The tones and overall mood in this jam makes it a great selection to listen with friends/family during this time of year.
“A-Punk” – Vampire Weekend
An awesome catchy tune that had to be included.
“Soda Pop Confusion” – Variety Lab
This track was meant for all chill-out situations. The bells give it the hint of a holiday feel.
“For What It’s Worth” – Buffalo Springfield
A true classic that will never die.
“Don’t Walk Away” – Chromeo
Chromeo successfully blends the grooves from the 70s/80s retro-era and makes them fun again. Even though this is one of their more chill songs, doesn’t it kind of make you want to dance?
“Take A Picture” – Filter
A warm song for “good feel” settings that also happens to be a late 90s music milestone.
“Human” – The Killers
This “upchill” track shows why The Killers have been a leading influence in today’s post-punk rock genres.
“St. Judy’s Comet” – Paul Simon
A melody that provides the perfect soundtrack to relax, reflect, and appreciate all that’s happened over the past year.

About: Camp Trend Playlist
Each month, we select 10 songs that we’re tuned into on the road and share them with you. No genre or publication year is considered “out of bounds” as we have a diverse music taste and our goal is to make a collaboration of tracks that are excellent for campfires, roadtrips, and all other escapes from the absurdities of modern life.
