SUMMER ROLLS ON /// A Summer Mix, Vol 2

The summer continues! This mix is a bit mellower while stil maintaining some upbeat summer vibes. Kinda the perfect soundtrack for a long summer bike ride in speedos and a pedo ‘stache with a bike basket full of brews and your tank top. Enjoy and don’t forget about Volume 1.

♫ Annuals – Eyes in the Darkness

The more I read about North Carolina’s Annuals the more praise I encounter. I only have a few tracks kicking around the iTunes but considering that they are all great I don’t know why I haven’t got any full albums. People seem to go nuts for 2008’s Such Fun and now that I’m falling hard for new track, “Eyes In The Darkness,” I think I have some catching up to do. Anyway, “Eyes” is off the forthcoming rarities and B-sides collection, Count The Rings, and once you get past the creepy growled intro it’s all twirling sunshine, handclap-y percussion, and musical happiness. As a bonus, here is my favorite Annuals jam from the archives, an intimate affair that eventually blossoms into a beautifully huge anthem.
