Two Mixes is a Sign of a Cluttered Mind: Summer Fridays 4.12

12 Aug

My brain’s not working so good this week. I mistakenly assigned cover art duty for Summer Fridays 4.12 to two people and didn’t realize it until they both sent in the finished work. Instead of asking one of them to redo it, I decided to make two mixes this week. The first, with cover by Daniele Yandel (who plays drums in new Brooklyn band The Gytters), is the “normal” indie rock mix this week.

The second was inspired by the Trader Vic’s cocktails on the other cover art, done by Summer Fridays MVP Greg Morris. I don’t know if this would make a cocktail party more successful, but that’s the vibe I was going for.
