It’s been a while since we’ve made and shared a mix — the last one may have been our 2016 favs — but we kicked around some files by email as the end of summer approached and came up with the following. Have fun guessing which one of us chose what and where we’ve been sourcing our recs. There’s a little bit of a NY/LA conversation happening here, a little bit of our shared and/or distinct WFMU habits, but more than anything I think the vibe is just a little wistfulness for when it was easier just to hang out on a late summer evening and listen to music. Hoping those times come again sooner than later. Meanwhile, enjoy the long tail of summer. What’s been in your headphones?
