Late to my own party: Summer Fridays
Okay, okay this is a day late but … hey, man, things got crazy. (Not really.) Lot of great music on this week’s mix, which is basically new stuff and semi-obscure ’90s UK indie. Sleeper and The Poplinjays still sound good! Ditto Family Cat and Milltown Brothers. As for the new stuff, dig mix-opener by Toy and that Melody’s Echo Chamber track. Yes, I’m repeating some bands but back when I made real mix tapes on a weekly basis, you’d just run through your favorite new albums track-by-track anyway… good songs are what counts. Cover art this week by Rich Scroggs who did a bang up job. Hope you’re boating or driving a race car this weekend. Enjoy!
