For most students, summer comes with an increase in free time. By extension, it provides more opportunities to spend searching for new music, committing it to memory as it soundtracks our road trips, poolside vacations and long weekend barbecues. Here, a few members of the 2017/18 Mars’ Hill team share what songs they had on repeat over the past four months. It’s an eclectic collection, covering everything from backwoods folk to progressive house, glossy soul to gritty Zamrock. Peruse through the playlists below, and perhaps find a few new songs to play you into the imminent school year. – Joel Redekop
