Midsummer Mix by Nader Bouberhan (I need a cooler name)

So there has been some talk about posting Mid-Summer Mixes.
Here is mine, just for the heck of it.
This is a short list.

I’ll start with some early summer Music.

The Offspring-Want You Bad
This is the song I think about for the beginning of Summer.

Donna Summer—She Works Hard for the Money

I’ve posted about this song before. I used to hear this song as a jingle all the time, but it is engrained in my mind as a Childhood Memory of Midsummer.




The Tornadoes- Bustin’ Surfboards

Anything by the Tornadoes really feels like Summer, just like MJ and those Ball Park commercials.




And

James-Laid
(American Pie nostalgia)
This is my song for the end of summer.




I was going to add LA Baby from the “Jonas Brothers,” but then I really did not feel like it. It’s weird how that happens sometimes.

QATFYG:
Any posters want to publish their midsummer mixes?

And to seal this with my signature,
Since I like Bass Instruments so much
Here is a Russian Bass Balalaika soloist. They need more vids of the web.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
