The Set Standard Playlist, Volume 1

Crop tops and bare skin are beginning to blossom as winter fades into oblivion. Hot lattes and white breath secede as bottomless mimosas fill our bellies and the awning at the bar around the corner from your apartment retracts into hibernation. As you're walking home from the laundromat, a Range Rover with all four windows down pulls up to the stop-light next to you. An unfamiliar song blasts from the gas-guzzler's sheetmetal - your foot starts tapping to the beat. You stuff your gloveless hand into your pocket, pull out your phone, and open Shazam. "Lick" by Cardi B. Spring is coming.

With songs from debut albums from Syd and Mister Wallace, as well as favorites by Azealia Banks and Kaytranada, our first playlist melts away your seasonal affective disorder with a mix of fiery upbeat tempos and R&B soul.

Your strut on the treadmill (or your hobble home from McDonalds at 3am) will never be the same.
