Office playlist summer 2014
Published 20 August, 2014 by DM

ATTENTION! We're changing how the office playlist works. Instead of a separate monthly playlist we're starting a rolling Spotify playlist (or 'The Leaf Label's Office Radio' if you will). Go here and hit Follow to keep abreast of what's floating our musical boat. We will continue to publish what we have added to the playlist here.

We're starting with a special summer treat: more than three hours of magic, the best things we've been listening to in the last couple of months. It goes a little something like this:
