Sometimes, life just works out. Like when you’re craving new music, and an awesome album drops out of nowhere. And on a Monday, no less? Must be fate.
Enter: Mondo Boys. They’re a collaborative that creates these amazing mixtapes every so often and puts them out for free download. And whenever a tape comes out, it seems to enter into heavy rotation on my playlist.
The latest edition is Desert Island, the third in their Weird Summer mixes. What I adore about these mixes is they combine old favorites – like Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry – with the latest and greatest indie sounds – like Twin Sister and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. One member of the collaborative is Justin Gage from Aquarium Drunkard, so you know the sound is going to be simultaneously cutting edge and classic.
Basically, it’s like having the coolest friend ever make you a mixtape. Perfect for keeping you happy as those final summer days slide on by.
Head over to Aquarium Drunkard now to check out the tracklist and download the mix.
