New & old!

Here’s something to get you in the mood, Jason Lytle’s “Brand New Sun”…

    Nice choices! The video for the Battles song certainly helps get that summer vibe, eh?

    I think you have it right with Brand New Sun. I also love Staring At The Sun, by Alaska In Winter. By The Seaside by William Hut rounds out my warm, summer feelings. Oh…and speaking of Jason Lytle…I think that D.U.I. BBQ Checkpoint fits well on any summer mix.
