Based on Emily Sugihara and Ellen Van Der Laan's summer playlist, the Baggu store at 242 Wythe Street in Brooklyn is the place to be this summer. If the top-notch handbags hadn't already lured you to the Williamsbrug boutique, we're betting classic Dolly Parton jams and Beach Boys tunes will.
The Beach Boys, "Surf's Up": "My dad had a Beach Boys tape in his old Porsche. We used to listen to this together when he drove me to elementary school."
King Tubby and the Aggrovators, "I Trim the Barber": "Summertime calls for dub."
Drake, "The Motto": "A favorite on my running mix—keeps my pace up."
Aaliyah, "Rock the Boat": "Oh early 2000s hip-hop, how I love you. Aaliyah especially."
Ariel Pink, "Life in L.A.": "My boyfriend puts this song on every time we drive out to Long Beach to surf. My favorite lyric is 'The weather is your boyfriend on a Saturday.'"
Desmond Dekker, "Israelites": "Desmond Dekker makes me want to drink lemonade and sit in the sun."
Sly and the Family Stone, "I Ain't Got Nobody (For Real)": "'She don't have to wear a wig, she don't have to be too big.' That's me!"
Ty Segal & White Fence, "Easy Rider": "My boyfriend consumes incredible amounts of music. He just sent me this album. Loving the sunbaked otherworldly pop music."
Tina Turner, "Bayou Song": "I love strong female singers, and Tina is No. 1. This song is from her first solo album 'Tina Turns the Country On.' She looks so cool on the cover. I don't know how she does it."
Soreng Santi, "Iron Man": "Spooky cover of Iron Man by this Thai psych rocker. This song would be a great soundtrack for a '70s surf flick. Google Image search this guy—his photo is rad!"
Kamuran Akkor, "Ikimiz Bir Fidaniz": "My boyfriend got me into this music blog called Ghost Capital, and this is on a compilation the guy who runs the blog put out. Turkish psych from the '70s. This girl's vocals are so cool. I would like to be lying on the beach listening to this."
Dolly Parton, "Traveling Man": "Gotta love Dolly, and the way she says 'I'm really gonna miss that travelin' man.'"
Canned Heat, "Going Up the Country": "This is my all time favorite driving song. It makes me want to drive upstate and swim in a stream. Not very original but I could listen to it all summer."
