Summr Jams *09 / / / Vol.1

Yeah!

Three volumes, 65 Songs, 3.4 hours (thanks iTunes) of sunburn inducing, curl ripping, beach ball bopping good times! Babes, Beaches, Bikes, Basketball, BBQ, Brews… Intentions for the mix’s were first and foremost to command and conquer bad vibes. Secondary intentions were to hopefully turn some ears on to some new favorites, maybe incite a dance party, provide ambiance to an already killer event or simply give you a break from whatever you are bored of listening to.

Each volume is roughly alphabetically sectioned to cut down on the silly task of organizing and sequencing 65 songs and the first on each volume is an specially chosen tune that i wanted to highlight for it’s all encompassing qualities of everything i wanted these mix’s to be. This first song by Happiness, called Track 13 because it came off of a cdr with no song titles, is the best thing i’ve heard from one of San Francisco’s best kept secrets Gerard Padwan. I hope i’m spelling that right. His old band Kool Teen ruled real hard and he’s been using the Happiness moniker for a few years now recording pretty consistently in his house, i do believe. The dude is a real talent with a heart’o gold. Enjoy!
