As the Worm Turns: Summer Fridays 4.5

Hey it’s the first Summer Fridays of actual Summer! And it’s supposed to rain! Which actually works out ok, given the content this week. Cover art is by Sable Yong who fronts two bands in Brooklyn: Year of the Tiger and Chalk and Numbers. I’m not sure what dissecting a gummi worm says about summer (she calls it “morbid cuteness”) but it kind of reminded me of old 4AD artwork for some reason… so this week’s mix is on the darker side. It does rain in the summer. Usually around 6PM. And with 4AD, there are three classic tracks from the label on here, plus a little shoegaze (old and new) and a bunch of other cool new stuff. Dig in.
