BitchTapes: Dark Summer


Sometimes sunny days make you feel gloomy. This mixtape is for anyone who feels like seeking shelter in the shade.  

When I think of “summer music,” I think of infectious, upbeat pop, but a couple interesting artists are releasing rather deep and moody albums this summer.  This mix includes brand-new tracks from Ancient Warfare (whose album The Pale Horse comes out in August from Alias Records), Jessie Jones (whose self-titled album comes out on Burger Records in July), and Drinks (whose LP comes out in August from Birth Records). Plus, I included a song from Icelandic singer Soley (whose new album includes a song about being buried alive) and some Fleetwood Mac for good measure.
