Now Playing at Madewell: September 2014

Music is an instant mood changer (and there’s research to prove it), so each month, our resident music experts create a playlist that captures exactly how we’ve been feeling lately. In stores this month, you’ll see flannel, leather and artfully distressed jeans but hear windows-down rock and some psychedelic tunes. We recommend streaming this mix at 7am while you get dressed. Your day will be infinitely better.

We asked Lindsey, our playlist wiz, how she put these songs together: “It’s the ultimate mix for carefree moments at any life stage. It reminds me of those old avoid-your-homework, turn-your-music-up, maybe-go-for-a-drive moments, and it’s still what I want to hear now: something timeless (just like our jeans and leather) that transcends trendy. It just lasts.”
