A Summer Mix, Finally

with 8 comments

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.

    Yeah, the first half is a little eh … you have to work through it to get to the good stuff. My mix-tapes are an exercise in perseverance.
