Summer mixtape

Perfect sound of summer?

Comet Gain.

There can be no argument here. No other band manages to convey that ecstatic summer feeling as effortlessly and with such beautiful desperation. The dizzying optimism, the self-forgetful melancholia, the total fucking triumph of a great melody.

This, then, is my perfect Comet Gain mixtape for the summer:

1. “The Fists In The Pockets”
3. “Draw A Smile Upon An Egg”
4. “Fingernailed For You”
5. “Why I Try To Look So Bad”
6. “I Close My Eyes To Think Of God”
7. “She Never Understood”
9. “Clang Of The Concrete Swans”
10. “The Weekend Dreams”
11. “Some Of Us Don’t Want To Be Saved”
12. “Sad Love’ And Other Short Stories”
13. “Wait Til’ December” 

To be played on repeat, obviously.
