To help take you on these jet-setting adventures, deputy editor Andrew Richdale and I compiled a similarly international playlist of both chart toppers and lesser-known favorites that complements the destinations we've featured. From Japan, enjoy the sounds of Kanagawa's six-piece rock band Suchmos as well as Shibuya-kei indie outfit Asobi Seksu while reading about Japanese wine. For your Italian-listening enjoyment, we've featured the likes of Roman rapper Coez and teen heartthrob Michele Bravi to soundtrack your Florentine sandwich snacking. On the Irish front, throw back to an earlier time with folk favorites The Cranberries and U2, or groove along to English chart-topper Ed Sheeran's nod to a Guinness-and-Jameson–swilling Connacht town in "Galway Girl." Give our playlist a listen as you peruse the issue and cook the recipes that have taken us across the globe and back.
