warmer weather tunes

April 21, 2010


. . . . . . .

i guess my eye is drawn to lots of green these days – it must be the weather.

i put together a little mix of stuff i’m listening to lately. it’s one to enjoy while you are mixing up a few gin and tonics on a warm spring eve. i hope you enjoy — you can listen to it HERE.

track list
+ at the beach (the avett brothers)
+ excuses (the morning benders; ‘yours truly’ session)
+ empty-hall sing-along (woodpigeon) (at about 2:55 into this song, something changes … the energy shifts and it gets me every time)
+ safe travels (peter and the wolf)
+ most wanted (cults)
+ are you lonely for me, baby? (otis redding & carla thomas)
+ the curse (josh ritter)
+ mississippi (john phillips)
+ too young to burn (sonny & the sunsets) (thank you, shari)
+ bloodbuzz ohio (the national)
+ the hundredth time (gigi)
+ lingering still (she + him)
+ your head is on fire (broken bells) (i particularly like the intro to this track)

    Thank you so much for this. All those mossy greens and a mix that is sure to please! (Especially those Morning Benders). Perfect for a G&T.

    wondering if 11:37 AM is too early for a g&t. the mix does inspire.

    I love anytime you post a new mix! I’m drinking a Hendrick’s gin and tonic right now and the music is perfect. Love the green theme. http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrea_tursini/4167242209/
