WIDR's September Favorites Playlist

This month brought WIDR's rotation rack a variety of indie pop and rock records, perfect for crawling under the covers and hitting snooze. With fuzzy guitar chords and groovy drum patterns, this playlist is a breath of light fall air, getting you into that back to school mood once again.
