Mix: Arusha Hotel

My good friend is going to Ghana for two years, so I made him this mix of African music to send him off.  Download Arusha Hotel.

Were We In The Clouds?

We soar thousands of miles above
Through flecks of ice
It ripples
Into dense haze
Our heads up, arms lifting
The sun below, we scrape the heavens.

7" Sundays: Thomas Wayne - Tragedy

The brother of Johnny Cash's guitarist, Thomas Wayne was a one hit-wonder, with the poignant tearjerker "Tragedy", which was also covered by The Fleetwoods.  The 1958 single was cut on Mempis label Fernwood records with the help of three high school girls taking care of backup duties.  Even though this song was a hit at the time, Thomas Wayne never made an LP, and ironically ended up dying in a car accident.  After the vocal bell is rung: "bungggg", we flip to a much less serious, typical 50s date song "Saturday Date".

Mix: Heat Wave

Made this mix a couple years ago for a heat wave, but that was not even in the same ballpark as this heatwave!  Right now hell is saying "Fuck this, you win!" to Earth.  Try not to die out there and let this melt across your lobes instead. Download
