I am posting this song as my plea to the (evil) spirits of summer: Please be hot again! Not like romantic September warmth, but like nasty sickly August hottt. Hot enough to justify laziness and nudity. Hot enough to make air-conditioners not seem completely babylon. Hot enough to use silly warning color-codes. Hot enough to potentially kill elderly and asthmatics. Where have those days gone?
This song is not really like anything I’ve ever made. Its hazy and slow and drifting and drumless. (and melodic!) You can put it on and just zone-out, hardly paying any attention to it. I made it at the beginning of this summer, mostly using the MIDI files from Will Smith’s “Summertime” but it’s not recognizable. That was a barbque jam. This is for quiet contemplation, but only because it’s to hot to do anything else.

SO we are back from Europe and we can’t thank enough people enough, but it went great. RIP to that speaker in Copenhagen and to my sobriety in Konstanz.
We will be BACK across the oceany ocean on Sept 5th thru 7th, at Numusic, in Stavanger, Norway. The lineup for this is seriously unorthodox, a collection of past (Bomb Squad, Black Devil Disco, Harmonia) and present (Shackleton, 2562, Lindstrom (oh yes I get cosmic)) favorites. Should be insane. I might make a custom sweatshirt/”jumper”.
