You won’t find major radio hits here. But if spirited, melodic power pop gets your endorphins going, give it a try. The playlist clocks in around 90 minutes, perfect for a long run.
Merge general manager Keith Artin, an avid runner and MapMyRun user, curated the playlist to promote the label’s silver anniversary, taking place later this year. The year-long celebration culminates on March 22 with a 25K road race from Durham to Chapel Hill.
Proceeds from the race will benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and Habitat for Humanity of Durham and Orange County. For more information visit www.mergerecords.com/25k.
