Summer06partone 041Photo by Chris Piercy, summer of 2006

I know, I know…it’s time for “summery” and “happy” music.  This mix isn’t trying to shut the propane off at your drunken barbecue or anything, but even during these blissful months of hot dogs, water gun fights, and sweaty one night stands, you still need the occasional come-down.

  1. Califone “Vampiring Again” from Quicksand/Cradlesnakes (2003)
  2. Mojave 3 “Mercy” from Ask Me Tomorrow (1995)
  3. Bark Psychosis “A Street Scene” from Hex (1994)
  4. Rachel’s “Moscow is in the Telephone” from Systems/Layers (2003)
  5. Grouper “Heavy Water/I’d Rather Be Sleeping” from Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill (2008)
  6. Bedhead “Crushing” from WhatFunLifeWas (1994)
  7. Arthur Russell “A Little Lost” from Another Thought (1994)
  8. Charles Mingus “Profile of Jackie” from Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956)
