Friday, July 6, 2007 - summer mix

It's finally summer here in Van-city. The beach is packed. The sun is shining and you can see the mountains for more than a few hours at a time. You really can't complain much, except when your morning jogging route is littered with booming grannies who completely cover the running path on the Sea Wall.

Anyway, it's a summer mix with some songs (old and new) that fit into my summer activities - patio drinks, bbqs, cold beer, wine, acoustic, and soul. So here you go:

Nice choices. Especially The National and Matt Pond PA. If You Want Blood has been in heavy rotation on my ipod since it came out. And I've been head over heels in love with the National since I saw them live a few weeks ago.
