Pop a tall, cool Shark: Summer Fridays 8.1

sf8.1

Hey, wow! Welcome back to Summer Fridays now in its unbelievable eighth year. You’d think I’d run out of songs by now. (“He has!”) We kick things off with a typically curious mix that manages to start with Hawkwind, make room for Swedish indiepop like Eggstone and Pelle Calberg, as well as 10CC, and wrap things up with FFS (Franz Ferdinand + Sparks). There’s also awesome new songs by Destroyer, Tame Impala, Stealing Sheep, onetime Girls frontman Christopher Owens, and more. It all works, at least I think so.

Frequent contributor Kate Bryant illustrated this week’s cover art and she did an awesome job as usual. Actual Summer Fridays Shark Beer coming soon to a distributor near you. If you’re downloading this mix, remember: no shuffling. You can also stream it too:
