Happy Independence Day Weekend here and I hope everyone’s having a swell three-day holiday. The cover art to this week’s mix comes from Jack Cooper of the bands Ultimate Painting and Mazes. I think I may have had that Flying Ace Snoopy patch as a kid. Maybe. The new Ultimate Painting album, Green Lanes, is out soon and is awesome (look for a track on a future Summer Fridays), and the UP live experience will be in North America soon and that I highly recommend as well.
I usually let whoever does cover art pick a song and Jack choose Moon Gang‘s “ii” which is some heavy, droney, krauty stuff and 100% affected the direction of this week’s mix. It turned out well and I’ve never made a mix quite like it, so that’s something.
PS, if you’re asking yourself “What happened to Summer Friday 8.4?” well artwork got “lost in transit” and I’ll put it up when it gets here, ok? Meanwhile dig into this.

If you’re downloading this, no listening on shuffle — all the songs blur into one another, especially on this mix. Enjoy!
