2015 Week 27: The Angry Ass of Summer


I'll be honest, I haven't been listening to a lot of music this week. Instead I've been absorbed in Serial which I started Monday and am already halfway through. Somehow, my wife is already ahead of me, though, so we can't talk about it.  It's times like these I wish I had an hour long commute. No I don't. Fuck that. Still, Serial: do it.

Meanwhile the angry ass of summer is in full force so that's what this week's Spotify playlist is about. I kept a few non obvious tracks on the list that just kinda feel hot and/or sweaty, but for the most part, I just added some standard type tracks that scream summer to me. I'm sure I could have dug some more, but it's hot. See to me, summer isn't all "summer lovers" type stuff. It's swamp ass, thirst and frustration. It's heavy and oppressive like an obnoxious boss at that dead end job you can't quit because the benefits are too good. It's bright and gives you headaches, no matter how dark your sunglasses are and there's a good chance dehydration is just your starting point. It's about the type of heat that has everyone on boil and ready to explode at the slightest shit. There's a reason most riots happen during heatwaves. So, yeah, summer. In Florida. I'm sure people love this shit, but those people are insane.
