TBE’s Summer In Hi-Fi /// A Summer Mix, Vol 1

Ahhh, summer… If mine wasn’t currently operating as the antithesis of all this relaxing and peaceful I would definitely have had this mix up sooner, but alas, it wasn’t to be. However, seeing as tomorrow I head out on an 18 day family vacation (never too old!) it’s time to get these summer jams pumping! Today is Volume 1 and the next two Fridays will bring Volumes 2 & 3 respectively. I’ve never understood the concept of an all-encompassing summer mix because like all things amazing, summer has many facets and is home to many moods. So I’ve gone and put together 3 full mixes of summer-themed goodness, each with it’s own sun-soaked vibe. Seeing as how this year’s summer was perhaps the most highly anticipated (and deserved) clump of warm days in Polish history I decided to kick off this summer mix series with a big rousing 54-minute high-five to the summer sun. Summer In Hi-Fi is a mix that celebrates summer with all the energy and eagerness of that first day at the beach or pool. Take a gander at the track list after the jump and download the whole mix right below!

SUPERCHUNK LEARNED how TO rock long ago so SURF no further for super guitar action

put your suitcase down and leave your shoes, gently by the door in a puddle with your blues

♫ Superchunk – Learned to Surf

Superchunk are a band that have been around since 1989 but their last album came out in 2001. That I know these facts is only thanks to Wikipedia because up until a few weeks ago I had  never really listened to them. Granted, I only have one track now but considering it is the ripper “Learned To Surf” off of their forthcoming EP I am OK with that. You can almost hear the 90s dripping off this jam as it shreds and pounds its way through growled vocals in an effort to get you to take that plaid shirt off and get into the waves! Yeah! A little guitar chugging here, a little cymbal tapping there, and I am yowling right along in the pit!
