As summer winds down, football season begins, school returns, and temperatures cool there is a subtle calm, a return to normal–a realignment. Getting to this new routine takes time and for some of us, different routes. Lessons From Happy Hour once again has compiled a collection of songs for your listening pleasure. Alternate Routes: The Realignment explores the idea of returning to self, returning to familiar routines and embarking on the route summer has led you to. With a blend of alternative and lo-fi style music, the contemplative mix offers the chance for reflection, insight, and the promise of what the rest of the year can hold.
