Spring itself might technically still be a few days away, but that needn’t stop you from beginning the prep-work on your spring and (because why not?) summer playlists a bit early.

Between a steel-drum-infused celebration of routine from The Go! Team, some soulful six-string sunshine from Mateus Asato and Annalé, a classic rock-informed epic from Myles Kennedy, and some raucous anti-hate punk from DZ Deathrays, we’ve got tunes for all tastes and seasons in our own best-of-the-guitar playlist this week.
