A Summer Mix, Finally // 2009 Edition

It’s no Most-Perfect-Beginning-of-Summer-Mixtape-Ever, but then, this is no summer 2008. Last summer was relentless. This summer is … not. Too many people I know either lost a job, or went through a breakup, at some point in the winter/spring to make the beginning of summer really celebratory—although I must say, just finally, in the past two or three weeks, everyone seems to be snapping out of that, really letting the summer seep in. Cheers to that. Maybe a late July/August mix with much more gusto will be in order. But as for late May/June/early July, this is what I’ve got. Enjoy.

  1. Oh, I see what you did here.

    Some passible false starts in the beginning, but then the second half comes through strong.

    Thanks for the traveling music, darlin.
