Summer, all of the time

July 2, 2012




Encinitas, California

. . . . . . . . .

It’s July and it’s hot hot hot in NYC these days. So I’ve put together a new mix of tunes, lots of them inspired by my trip to LA in April (some of these are songs that I listened to on repeat during my travels out west). So fix yourself a cold, cold drink, play these tunes and let’s make this one hell of a memorable summer.


Track List:

+ Albatross (Fleetwood Mac)
+ Parties in the USA (Jonathan Richman)
+ Always Waitin’ (The Paris Sisters)
+ I Can Only Give You Everything (Nick Waterhouse)
+ Catamaran (Allah-Las)
+ Mockingbird (Inez & Charlie Foxx)
+ This Is How We Walk On The Moon (Arthur Russell)
+ Ivory Coast (Pure Bathing Culture)
+ Wax (Theme Park)
+ Love is Luck (The Walkmen)
+ Paris 1919 (John Cale)
+ For The Sake of The Song (Townes van Zandt)
+ Hard Life (Bonnie “Prince” Billy)
+ Crooked Branches (JBM)
+ Andalucia (Yo La Tengo)
+ Summer Camp (Summer Camp)

    You know how to pick a winner, Brian. Love that top photo — brings out that singular quality of water of straddling solid and liquid at the same time. Almost looks like a diorama made out of clay, or like thick layers of paint.

    Albatross just made my summer mix as well! Could listen to it on repeat. Great pics as always.

    clay, or thick layers of paint … or cement … or cake frosting? Holy wow.

    this is one hell of a playlist!
    great songs, and let me tell you… it works great in winter, too.
    thanks for taking the time to arrange it for us!

    Love all the gradients there are to the water. And can’t wait to listen to this summer mix!

    I can hear the gentle waves of Albatross in these stunning shots!

    (It’s July and it’s still cold, wet and dreary here in the UK. . . )

    Man alive, that J. Richman song is one of my all-time favorites. (Much living-room and porch dancing, beer bottle in hand, has occurred to it.) Great playlist.

    Walkmen and van Zandt — Phew! :-) Amen to a memorable summer.

    I’ve been waiting patiently for a new summer mix. I listen to your other ones on repeat.

    I love that you included a Fleetwood Mac song I’ve never heard before, rad.
