As is often the case during the summer, the days and weeks seem to slip by in a blur and before you know it August is knocking on the door and you realize you have a bunch of stuff you should get cracking on. Posting the past six weeks of playlists isn’t necessarily high on that to-do list, but it’s easy enough, so here’s to getting something done and having a slight sense of accomplishment. The first half of summer has been marked by some nice private press finds, music revolving around the Complicated Fun book, Pink Floyd tribute bands, new music by David Nance, Golden Retriever, Hearts & Minds, House & Land and much more. The photo included in this post was taken by Autumn Perron. As always, thanks for looking and listening.
