Summer, we hardly knew ya...



Summer never really raised its ugly head this year in California, what few hot days that have come along happened late in the season and, in the case of this week, outside of the season. As such, camping, swimming, and other outdoor activities (like drinking to excess) dominated most of my activities for the height of the season. I caught a few things wholeheartedly here and there like Hatikvah, Jimmy Edgar, Tame Impala, the Black Keys, the Pomegranates compilation, and Sascha Dive. The rest came and went in blur as they generally do in the world of underground music so I did my best to capture a snapshot of the seasonal playlist we enjoyed on our many, many trips, vacations, and sojourns.
