Summer Soundtrack: Summer of Hugs
A hedonistic playlist of free downloadable songs
July 18, 2005 6:41PM (UTC)
Here's another Summer Soundtrack playlist, Michael Hotter's "Summer of Hugs." He notes that "these songs are very of the moment, but that's what summer songs are all about: hooky immediacy. The ideal setting is a campfire on the beach, with people imbibing in various stages of undress." In that context, the decision to end the mix with the unrestrained music of Albert Ayler becomes an act of pure hedonism.
