Move Your Feet to the Summer Song
The summer is sweltering. The old men are up to their usual tricks: swimming in the murky waters of lake Houhai and rocking bare midriffs, and the ladies are hiding under fluorescent parasols while licking down icy popsicles.
I prefer to ratchet up the heat with some smoking trax and keep the fire at bay with a frosty Yanjing. Music and beer make the summer go round.
Holy Ghost!'s recent summer jam, I Will Come Back, is on the playlist. And I like to wash it down with the retro-tastic video.
After the romp, it's nice to rinse off the perspiration with some Walkabout from Atlas Sound and Panda Bear.
And as the sun's going under, I reach for Lindstrøm's Breakfast in Heaven, which always puts a glowing smile on my face.
After night-fall, I have no recollection.
