Musical Pairings @ eating/sf: the July mix

July 23rd, 2010

Here it is!  The July mix.  It features the songs I’ve been listening to while enjoying the Summer sun and warmth (or at least the songs I listen to while dreaming about escaping the San Francisco fog).  It is a pretty straight forward mix of happy, sunny pop tunes featuring a lot of the best tracks that I’ve promoted on Musical Pairings this month in addition to a few sneak peeks at upcoming posts.  For example, Cults will probably be on repeat in our home for the next two months after witnessing their opening set for Maps & Atlases last weekend (pics and a video here).   The same is true for Musical Pairings’ favorite Blackbird Blackbird after dancing it up at a small warehouse party at Sub-Mission he DJed last weekend in the Mission District (pic here).  And like the rest of the music loving world I’ve been listening to a heavy dose of Big Boi’s latest album and the “All Summer” jam by Kid Cudi, Best Coast and Rostam from Vampire Weekend.  Topped off with warmth-invoking good-time jams by Tennis, Hardmix, Niva, MillionYoung, Twin Sister, Dominant Legs, and Slow Animal; a new remix by Vodka & Milk; and a demo from the up and coming artist Innocent Wildlife – this is one summer mix you don’t want to miss.  I can pretty much guarantee you’ll discover something new to love.  I’d say it is as fresh and sweet as a summer peach!
