Summer Mix I

Listen to this Month's Mix!!!

Everybody knows summer is the best time of the year for music. You can listen to it blasting on your car stereo while driving wherever it is you are going with your windows down and just enjoying the summer. And lets not forget outdoor concerts, which make the whole concert experience that much more fun, cause you get sunburn waiting in line and there is a better chance of a mudpit happening.

Of course I could make a million different mixes related to the summer, which is why this is technically labelled the Summer Mix I, because I know someday there will be another summer mix being made by myself.

So I hope you enjoy this mix of what my summer has been so far.

  1. Rock N' Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) - Handsome Boy Modeling School - Off of their album 'So How's Your Girl...'.
  2. Good Fortune - PJ Harvey - Off of her album 'Stories from the City - Stories from the Sea'.
  3. Hot Tamales - Cassandra Wilson - I got this off of the 'Martin Scorses presents Robert Johnson' Collection.
  4. 35 in the Shade - A.C. Newman - Off of the album 'Slow Wonder'. I really enjoy this whole album.
  5. Plans Get Complex - All-Time Quarterback - Off of their album 'All-Time Quarterback!'. I recently got into this album a lot.
  6. Tropicalia - Beck - Off of his album 'Mutations'.
  7. Make it Hot - Mirah - Off of the album 'Advisory Committee'. This song makes it hot.
  8. Mankind - Pearl Jam - Off of their album 'No Code'.
  9. Arco Arena - Cake - Off of their album 'Comfort Eagle'.
  10. San Tropez - Pink Floyd - Off of their album 'Meddle'.
  11. She Belongs to Me - Bob Dylan - Off of his album 'Bringin' It All Back Home'.
  12. Haiti - Arcade Fire - Off of their album 'Funeral'
  13. Lightning Strike Rescue Op - Mark Mothersbaugh - I got this off of 'The Life Aquatic' Soundtrack. One of the best soundtracks I have heard in awhile.
  14. Alta Mira - The Edgar Winter Group - Off of their album 'They Only Come Out at Night'. Who knew these albino rockers wrote more then 'Frankenstein'.
  15. Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix - I got this one off his album 'Axis: Bold as Love'.

Anyways I hope you enjoy this mix. For those of you who dont know, I make as many copies of this mix as I am allowed by itunes (7), and then I hand them out at my acoustic sets at the Mocha House in Vacaville, CA which occur once a month. So stop by after the show and ask me for a copy before I give them all away.

Or just buy all the music you see listed and put the mix together yourself. Or make your own mixes and post them in my comments so I can check out what you are listening to.

umm I sure you know all these but It's late and I'm bored so I thought Id make one. *the story behind the mix* :)..Driving the backroads to the Lake (either end of spring/early summer or end of summer/early autumn) puts me in a certain kind of mood and these songs (along with so many others) help with the mood I'm in while driving up there. So yeah here they are not in any real order though.
