Definitive(ish) Summer Mixtape: Volume II

31 May

As the prophetic Will Smith song says it is in fact “summer, summertime, summertime.”

Last year’s Definitive(ish) Summer Mixtape remains one of the most viewed HCK! playlists… and for good reason. On a personal level I dig the fall/hooded sweatshirt mixes the most just because of their heart-meet-sleeve nature, yet it’s the summer playlists that bare more significance working as a soundtrack to a place in time we will forever remember. It’s the songs which fill the ether around those sweat-filled youth-fueled memories that never go unappreciated. Everyone has their own tastes, this may not be yours, but for me I’ve been piecing this one together since the very moment the original DSM was official last year so I’m rather stoked to share it.

The best way to find great music is to ask friends to recommend some songs, which is what I did last week and was able to come up with a handful of great tracks to include which I never would have heard if it hadn’t been for their suggestions, I even ended up with a few song ideas for some other mixes I’ll be posting in the coming weeks.

    Thanks!…. I really appreciate the heads up and the fact of knowing someone is paying that close of attention… There’s a band I dig here in Austin called The Bad Lovers I must have got them confused when writing up the track list
