Everywhere you go, I’ve got your music: Summer Fridays 5.2

I’m late enough as it is with this one, so I’m just gonna say that regular Summer Fridays design contributor Greg Morris has come up with another winning cover here and makes me think I should open a beach bar. Personally, my drink would be a michelada which I’m actually having right now as I write this. (Valentina sauce is the key.) As usual with the mixes Greg does covers for, this one’s on the dancey side. If you haven’t heard the Saint Etienne album, by the way, go get it now. It makes any day better… just like a michelada.


1. Summer Camp – Always
2. Saint Etienne – I’ve Got Your Music
3. Talk Talk – Dum Dum Girl
4. Ice Choir – A Vision of Hell 1996
5. M83 – Reunion (Mylo Remix)
6. Led Er Est – Kaiyo Maru
7. Merchandise – Time
8. Chromatics – At Your Door
9. d’Eon – Al-Qiyamah
10. The Wolfgang Press – A Girl Like You
11. The 2 Bears – Warm & Easy
12. Vex Ruffin – Secret Weapon
13. Beat Connection – Think Feel
14. Gary Clail & On U-Sound System – Magic Penny
15. Cornelius – Star Fruits Surf Rider

Like a perfect michelada, Summer Fridays are actually mixed together in a perfect harmony of hot, sour, salty, and sweet. No shuffling. I’ll try and get liner notes up over the weekend, ok?

Back in the (Wintry) Mix

There were a few snowflakes in the air today here in Brooklyn, the first of the season, so it’s good timing for the first Wintry Mix of 2012. Unlike the Summer Fridays mixes, these will be almost entirely new music… though I’m allowing myself one oldie per week. Lots of great stuff here: new singles from The 2 Bears, Diagrams, WhoMadeWho and Bear in Heaven. This one is pretty dancefloor-friendly. So have at it!



1. The Golden Filter – Age of Consent
2. WIR – So and Slow it Grows
3. WhoMadeWho – Inside World
4. Django Django – Default
5. Errors – Pleasure Palaces
6. Chairlift – Sidewalk Safari
7. Expensive Looks – Nightfalls
8. Tanlines – Brothers
9. LESCOP – La Foret
10. The 2 Bears – Work
11. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Dream On
12. The Big Pink – Hit the Ground (Superman)
13. Bear in Heaven – The Reflection of You
14. Grimes – Genesis
15. Diagrams – Tall Buildings

Like all my mixes, the songs actually segue together so…No shuffling! Liner notes after the jump.
