Top Hipster Poolside Tracks for a Balmy Florida Winter

As the rest of the country copes with increasingly frigid temperatures and the threats of a nor'easter, we're here in South Florida enjoying the heat. Coupled with a nice breeze, our winter weather allows us to potentially enjoy Thanksgiving meals by poolside (jealous?).

South Florida's lack of seasonal variance is a major sticking point for some residents who claim it's too hot all of the time, and that a bit of snow "might be nice." Not us. County Grind knows not to look a gift horse in the mouth. County Grind knows that your cool friends in Brooklyn are actually chilling while you're, uh, chilling.

With Art Basel -- Miami's art annual epitome of hip -- rapidly approaching, we're feeling some super cool vibes to go with our lovely November weather, and being that we're a benevolent and loving music blog, we're going to provide you with a soundtrack for your hipster poolside hangs.

Don't forget to wear sunblock and maybe consider buying a swimsuit somewhere other than American Apparel, because we both know it's been done and you can do better. Oh, and try not to get any stuffing in the jacuzzi.
