Every time summer rolls around, it feels good to remind myself that a cold beer on a warm summer night is on call when I want it. Here are some jams I plan on diggin' out when that happens:
Frankie Paul - Worries in the DanceI found this off a reggae mix compiled by Deadbeat for oki-ni. Listening all the way through was a solid nostalgia trip of my life in the Caribbean and all the after parties by the beach. Somehow, a car with a supped up soundsystem laying down irie vibes and rasta drug lord curated pot always showed up.
Painted Palms - All Of Us
A cute girl on a bike gave me the sunniest grin ever when I was cruising through Culver City with this song echoing out of my car. YMMV, but I can't recommend the Painted Palms EP this is off of enough.
