Just popped over to the Cowboys from Sweden myspace blog to see what was new, and lo and behold! Smoke! A new mix tape! These guys put together some of the best mixes I’ve heard. Most of it is from the 60s and includes Serge Gainsbourg, Piero Umiliani, Sven Libaek, and Les Baxter.
The Acme Siren’s Top 10 Free Music Downloads of 2008 – #3
Rarely does one find a cache of music this large on the internet. While not all of it is new, and not all of it is good, a whole lot of it is really good to have. This is a three part mix titled “Summer.” The parts are named Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. As a mix it’s a great start to that all day mix you need for your barbeque or beach house party (although you might want to remove the Autechre and put it in the “Winter” mix. I’m not sure how it got in there.) The Summer Mix is something to put on and forget about, allowing you to enjoy the friends, food and fun of summer. Never mind that it’s 40º (which in February can feel balmy here in Minnesota), or that it’s raining, or that you live in a landlocked state with no access to an appreciable beach. Just put on the “Summer” mix and some sunglasses and you’ll be fine.
This music is good for: Barbeques, the beach, driving to the beach, picnics, backyards, bocci ball, trying to throw the frisbee further than the dog can run, flying kites with friends in the football field of your old junior high school, sun, swimsuits (one, and two-pieces, but especially two-pieces), bon fires, s’mores, and clambakes. Enjoy.
