Get Beans!

Mugs and Music

We pair playlists with all of our weekly coffee releases. Here are some recent tunes we've shared
Get Beans!

Some folks take cream and sugar with their coffee… and some of us like to add a little auditory stimulation. Alongside every unique and delicious weekly Yes Plz coffee release we include a playlist of music. Sometimes it’s from a team member, often it’s from a customer. There’s a pretty wide range of genres and themes.

If you have Apple Music or Spotify you can find most all of them (Yes Plz on Apple Music, Yes Plz on Spotify) dating back to our earliest days. Here are just a few recent highlights that could be good places to explore some new sounds…

Our latest playlist comes fresh from our friends at Los Angeles-based label Leaving Records featuring some of the best artists on their roster. [Apple link, Spotify link]
Our teammate Devin put together this playlist of contemporary soul that harkens back to the sounds of the 60s and 70s. [Apple link, Spotify link]
When Matthew Chavarria of Footwork Coffee Service is barista-ing, you know the music is going to be on point. Every playlist he does for us proves it. [Apple link, Spotify link]

Experimental Hip Hop inspections and inspirations shared from producer Otto Moss. [Apple link, Spotify link]

Ambient-leaning music that’s intriguing enough to slip into the foreground [Apple link, Spotify link]
Joshua Fisher is our go-to guy for what’s worth listening to in the world of indie music spanning every genre. [Apple link, Spotify link]
Barry White, Barry Gibb, Barry Manilow. If you’re a Gen X kid whose parents had an 8-track machine and a penchant for pop, there’s no shame in indulging in this 70s radio nostalgia. [Apple link, Spotify link]
Photographer Megan McIsaac has a great eye when it comes to portraits — turns out she has a great ear too. [Apple link, Spotify link]
Recording artist Dre Babinski (Steady Holiday) contributes this lovely playlist bookended with two of her own awesome tracks. [Apple link, Spotify link]
Boards of Canada take their sweet time between releases (their last LP was in 2013), but sometimes other artist’s tunes can scratch a similar itch. [Apple link, Spotify link]

Of course it goes without saying that If you discover an artist you really love on one of these streaming services, looking them up on Bandcamp and buying their music directly is a very cool thing to do. And if you’ve got a good playlist you think we’d like, slide into our DMs on the socials (Twitter, Instagram) and we’ll trade you beans for beats if we include it with a release!
