via my music Tumblr blog, skewgee:

Every summer for the past eight years I’ve made a playlist for the season, perfect to roll down the windows in your car and feel the breeze cooling from the sweltering warmth of the blacktop.  I call this mix series my Summer in the City mixtape, and the 2014 edition features music from diverse musicians, including: The Kinks, Beck, Galaxie 500, Vampire Weekend, Neil Young, Television, Pokey LaFarge, and The Flaming Lips.

More summer playlists on my website.
