Sydney's Summer Mix

This month's mix is a departure from the usual ambient soundscapes. The new download comes to us from my 15 year old daughter, Sydney. She made this mix for our family vacation at a small cottage in northern Wisconsin.

She didn't just pick the tunes, she did the mix herself using Acoustica MP3 mixer. I think she did an excellent job. I know she kept obsessing about whether segues were just right.

The music is fairly acoustic in nature. Some artists, like The Fray, are fairly typical for a 15 yr old. But some, like Kings of Convenience & The Decemberists, are a bit more unexpected. I'm just glad her music taste doesn't run to 50 cent, High School Musical or Toby Keith.

I hope you enjoy it.

Nice work, Sydney. I really like The Shins and Feist. Your dad's mixes make me sleepy, so this is a much appreciated. Keep it up :)

The mix is no longer accessible. My guess that's been true for some time. Too bad.
