YK Summer Mix Anniversary

Pal of mine Michael Eades used to host an annual Summer Mix series. It was before everyone was on streaming sites, so you would have to patch together a zip file of mp3s, or stitch something together and host if yourself.

This week marks the 10th anniversary of my 2012 submission which is absolutely crazy to think about. It still bangs, in case you were wondering.

I cooked it up in Spotify but a couple of crucial tracks are missing. It is still a strong listen but isn’t the same.

Automatic – “New Beginning”

Very Exciting! New Automatic single out today with the full album due in June!

Safe As Milk 2021 Playlist

Adam and I talk a lot of music on the podcast. This is a Spotify playlist of songs we loved last year. We didn’t talk about all of them on the show, and they’re not all from 2021, but we each picked 10 to make a fun and eclectic mix.

Jay Leo Phillips “You Might Not Like What You See When You Get There” (Official Video)

Internet pal M Eades put together this snappy video for Jay Leo Philips’, “You Might Not Like What You See When You Get There”.

CYCLES – A film by Jason Goldwatch & The Alchemist

I’m sure I know more of The Alchemist’s work than I can think of right now, but this is a great audio/visual show.

Wet Leg Fansite Update!

US TV debut on Seth Meyers!

They’re coming close to home next year on tour and I can’t go. It’s a little disappointing.

The Super Cops (1974)

I caught the last chunk of this movie last night while flipping channels. It’s got lots of standard-issue 70’s NYC cop movie stuff in it, but the standout to me is the music. Holy cow is it good.

Jerry Fielding, a victim of the Red Scare in the 50’s, did the score to this but is more famous for his work for The Wild Bunch and Straw Dogs. I’m gonna pull this whole movie down as an audio file so I can dig into some audio clips and beats.

Snake Union – To Whom I’ve Never Met and Only Imagined

I know Dave from Snake Union. Here’s new music from his group. It is a bit more challenging that what I normally share here, but when you know people that do dope shit, you should share it.

Safe As Milk Podcast #167 – Relax your Brain

These are still a lot of fun so we’re still at it.
