You know I love the Yewknee Summer Mix Series, which is a clearing house of user-submitted summer-themed mixes e.g. a whole lot of free new music for you and me!
The 2010 collection is gangbusters, but here are a couple that made the cut and got downloaded at Chez Gwen [I’m still working on listening to them all].
Dreams in Audio: Express Yourself
Starsky: Crack & Weed
Jeremy Okai Davis: I Got A Story To Tell
upbeat sitdown: Run for Cover
Bret Easton Ellis Summer Edition [1980s club night]
Strawberry Fields are planted [Beatles rarities and 1960s]
Hope is just a waking dream [chillwavey]
For Pops: Taking it old school [1970s-80s R&B]
Savannah High: Nothing Stays the Same [1980s R&B/dance]
I’m in this CD exchange club and this month’s is extra-special, a bunch of sassy jumpseat R&B ripped from 78s. I uploaded a copy because you should be enjoying it, too. Get it here!
