Summer Mixtape 2012: Sunscreen and Slushies

The perfect summer mix tape can be a very finicky thing. It requires a perfect blend of catchy, uptempo tunes for those long days spent biking down oak and moss shaded lanes, with a few slow jams thrown in to balance out the hot, sticky summer nights that make you long for rolled-down windows and drives to no-where. It needs to have a few classics thrown in for good measure, and some lesser known songs so that new summer memories can be made. This is my attempt. Happy summering, y'all! (Give it a listen here.)
