It’s August and once again we’re finally closer to the end of Summer than the beginning! It should come as no surprise to anyone by now that that signals a truly joyous time around here—and a time to celebrate! OH, celebrate we will.
I took this mix on a five-mile walk on Sunday and I can assure you that it’s at least very good for that (and not at all boring after five times, front-to-back, in a row). As is occasionally the case when I feel like it, this month’s mix includes no new songs, but I am hoping perhaps you’ll walk away with something great you’ve never heard before! Like, perhaps, the brilliant intro of Sleepyhead’s “What’s Gonna Set You Free?!” Or maybe the vocal melody gymnastics of HMBM5’s “Suzanne.” There are also two Biff Bang Pow! tracks to be found here! One, of course, c/o Mr. Feck.
- Primal Scream “Velocity Girl” (Janice Long Session)
- Sleepyhead “What’s Gonna Set You Free?”
- Comet Gain “She Never Understood”
- The Shermans “Fly Away”
- The Darling Buds “Just To Be Seen”
- Action Painting! “These Things Happen”
- The Melons “Eskimo”
- Twa Toots “Please Don’t Play ‘A Rainy Night In Georgia’” (Peel Session)
- Go Sailor “Together Forever In Love”
- Saturday Looks Good To Me “Diary”
- The Troggs “With A Girl Like You”
- The Clientele “Lamplight”
- The Summer Suns “In Your Eyes”
- How Many Beans Make Five “Suzanne”
- Biff Bang Pow! “If I Die”
