The theme of the day is MARITIME MUSIC! Below, you will see songs about whales, pirates, clams, sharks, oceans, and seas.

The first part of the mix is lo-fi indie, perfect for a lazy summer sailing trip or a muggy beach snooze.

The second part of the mix is dancy rock and electronic, perfect for ferry trips, waterskiing, or splashing in the waves.

The third part of the mix is ominous metal, for those dark, long, epic voyages out into the ocean and battles with whales or sharks.

Enjoy!
