Chris Chu of the benders made a summer playlist called EchoMix1 for blog Say Mayday. It includes songs that gave Chris good summer vibes. He even offered up his own cover of Joanna Newsom’s “Have One on Me”, played over J Dilla’s “U-Love”. I just started the mix & it’s really amazing so far.

Here are the songs he included in the mix:

1. Steve Martin & Bernadette Peters “Tonight You Belong To Me“
2. Xavier Cugat “Perfidia (Instrumental)“
3. The Avalanches “Since I Left You“
4. The Radio Dept “Where Damage Isn’t Already Done“
5. The Walkmen “There Goes My Baby (The Drifters Cover)“
6. Bibio “Lovers’ Carvings“
7. The Morning Benders “Have One On Me (Joanna Newsom / J Dilla Cover)“
8. Twin Sister “Lady Daydream (Cassette Version)“
9. Arthur Russell “Lucky Cloud“
10. Blur “Caravan“
11. Smokey Robinson and The Miracles “Ooo Baby Baby”

Here’s what Chris had to say about the mix:

‘if you put this mix on backwards and play it while you eat a bowl of cereal, you’ll see your entire future.”

Time to hit play, grab some lucky charms and see if this blog still exists in 3 years….
