It’s about time I put this up here as the sun has finally shown itself over the past week.
In terms of the song choices, I think Plumtree’s “Go!” is the perfect start to anything and should be used on every soundtrack (and not just for Scott Pilgrim). Charlotte Hatherley’s “Summer” is actually kind of sad, but it’s hopeful and that’s what the beginning of summer has always felt like. The middle is the most fun part of course, and by the end it’s just nostalgia and memories (Cub’s “NYC”). I feel like I’m selling one of those really bad compilation ads on TV.
This is something I made to contribute to my friend Jaz’s zine, which should be finished and released shortly. As soon as I have any copies, I will be sure to post about it here in case anyone would like one!
Some day soon we will revive this blog. In the mean time, here is a mix one of our friends made! You should check it out, and check out her blog, which is all about highlighting awesome female/female-fronted bands.
