XXXIV

By Craig Eley | 1 August 2007

For school-goers old and young, August is literally a month of Sundays: all of the excitement of a day off with all of the dread of knowing class is right around the corner. For me this felt especially real a few weeks ago, when I left friends old and new in the Bay Area to head back to my real life in Iowa City. I expected this podcast, then, to reflect some sort of internal divide. But this mix is much more playful than nostalgic, mostly because I like shiny music and am a shallow person. So here’s to August: three parts last-minute mischief and one part daydreaming out of windows.

Thanks, as always, to the labels, reps, and musicians for lending us their sounds.
