too-hot-for-house-music

Dear lord it is entire too hot for house music right now… at least in LA.  On the real, its nice to pump the breaks on the dancefloor jams for a minute and take a minute to smell the flowers, and the indie rock and other stuff.  This 20-track playlist united Colby J. + brohlson and it does not disappoint.  From Leon Bridges to Thundercat, theres a whole lot of fun packed into this bad boy, but no house music.  BC its too damn hot!!!
