There’s something seductive about this song that just draws me in. Since I consider myself a beach baby at heart, I immediately liked their name and the music suits it.
Fans of Mac Demarco should really dig this one.

Meg Mac – “Roll Up Your Sleeve”
Jason Bentley has been spinning this track for a few weeks and I absolutely love it.
