Peter and Kerry
Okay, I know it is a Saturday, but today is also June 1st a.k.a. the beginning of the summer months. Did you really expect me to drop a summer mixtape on any other day? Welcome to Summer is the perfect driving-with-the-windows-down mixtape. Like, that is the sole reason I made it. Whether you’re rolling into town blasting RL Grime‘s remix of Chief Keef (making eye contact with the old lady in the car next to you at a stoplight) or just shouting the lyrics of Planetarian‘s “Swim” at the top of your lungs as you cruise down the interstate, this mix works. Plus, how legendary is the sequence of Chance The Rapper into Reggie Watts into Chief Keef into Disclosure?

You daydream about the sea, and I daydream you’ll be mine,
Underneath the shade of leaves, stars over the trees,
Spending a whole summer with you that sounds alright, I’ll,
Meet you in the evening so we can swim tonight
P.S. In case you missed it I made a promo video for this tape. First ever, very rare.
And this is how it starts…
The music blog community is generally a pretty tight knit community, and with Thanksgiving just around the corner, Sunset in the Rearview is thankful for the many, many music websites that share great music every week. One such website is Noon Pacific. This site delivers a playlist straight to your email every Monday at noon (pacific time), containing the best music the blogs have to offer. Sign up is simple and easy; you just have to give your name and email address. I mean, you guys this is a great idea that has been executed to perfection.
So naturally, we decided to collaborate with Noon Pacific, who was kind enough to feature our very own guest mix in their weekly email. I put 10 brand new indie songs on this mix, including Ra Ra Riot’s newest single, a song from our new favorite west coast band The Mowgli’s, and ”Annie” from Peter and Kerry‘s excellent debut album La Trimouille.
