Retro Music for Modern Living

We’ve decided to start a new series here on the MidMod blog, and we’re calling it “Retro Music for Modern Living”. Each month we’ll feature a new retro, mid-century music album or Spotify playlist. Our goal is to fill your mid-century modern home with the best exotica, lounge, and swinging tunes that are sure to make your next happy hour a hit!

To kick things off, we’ve picked a real doozy. Our first recommendation is the Exotica/Space Age Bachelor Pad Music Playlist on Spotify. This playlist contains 476 songs—that’s over 24 hours of freaky and fun retro music. You’ll enjoy the best from Les Baxter, Esquivel!, Jimmy Durante, Eddie Cano, Tak Shindo, Julie London and so, so many more.

All that’s left to do is grab your favorite libation (our is currently an Old Fashioned) and press play. Just sit back, relax, and get ready to be transported back to the mid-century. This retro playlist is sure to put a pep in your step. Cheers!
