AD Presents :: Weird Summer, A Mixtape

We are Mondo Boys — a NY/LA mixtape/sound collage collaborative. This is our faded out late-summer mix. We do cassettes/digital.

“WEIRD SUMMER” was created exclusively to get you through those last few incredibly sticky days of the hottest god damn summer you can remember. Fuel for the fire. Grab that boom box, hit the beach, and turn up the volume. Best served before 9.21.2009. Mucho take it easy. – MB

  1. Hey
    Nice Mix tape !

    you should invite others to post their “End of Summer” Mix tapes..


  2. Aquarium Drunkard should do a feature where readers can post their own summer mixtapes (in response to comment #3).

    Yer Weird Summer Mixtape presents a phenomenal cache of tracks – this will be a mainstay in my iPod/iTunes rotation for a while.

  3. Yeah, but where’s “Weird Summer” by the Velvet Crush? 🙂

    Awesome mix, no doubt. Now I need to throw a Labor Day party!

  4. Simply brilliant Mr. Gage, congrats. Triumphant at times and pure fun at others — you’ve captured the end of summer days quire well.

  6. This is without doubt the best summer mix I’ve heard all year. You guys did an amazing job, from the song selection to the ordering to the flow it’s obvious that you put a lot of time and work into it. Thanks for sharing.

  7. great great stuff, thank you! i feel the need to call in sick to work and head down to coney island.

  8. Hey aquariumdrunkard

    are you going to allow us to share our mix tapes “End of Summer” too, or just take all the glime..

    I guess we might all show Yeah up!

  9. thanks so much for this mix which came in handy while cooking boning swimming here at the end of the summer…really

  11. What a great mix tape; works for the 50 something dad and the 15 year old daughter. Thanks so much for posting the link.

    Mark and Eleanor

  12. Amazing mix. Turned me on to a whole slew of bands I was unaware of.
    Plan on putting this on a 60 minute cassette, it was made for it.
    Bookmarking blog…now.

  13. I’ve been listening to your mix while driving around this past week and this is an exceptionally fine collection to evoke summer. The transitions are just wonderful! Thank you for putting it together.

  14. Fantastic. Ultimate driving to the beach tunes!!!! Reached their full potential en route to Robert Moses with boards on Sunday. PAZ!

  15. I’ll be playing this late into November, as ” The Summer” in Florida becomes more and more tolerable toward driving with the windows down.

    Thanks and get to work on Weird Summer 2, Son of Weird Summer…please?

  16. Is this still up for download? I can’t tell. When I try to download either the zip or mp3, it seems to cancel itself after only a few megabytes… May I request a re-up if it’s not just something wrong with my computer?

  17. Just threw a fourth of July party with this mix as background music. It went over swimmingly. Thanks!
