Guest Mix 13 // The Art Museums

And now…the return of the Guest Mixes! And with this one, drunken menageries may occur if played at the right time. For our 13th go-round, Glenn D. from The Art Museums is driving, providing the tunes to bring out the warm sunshine. Makes sense, seeing as how The Art Museums are fellow sunny Bay Area dwellers who create wonderful pop jems. Listening to their debut album “Rough Frame” may cause the same great feelings that come with listening to any great record from the likes of let’s say early Television Personalities…yeah some exquisite DIY pop. “Rough Frame” is fantastic, it was self recorded and released back in February via Woodsist (buy it HERE). And now Glenn has presented us with the perfect jukebox for those wonderfully hazy afternoon hangouts full of cocktails and ass wiggles. So why not let Glenn serve you up some classic UK pop, punk, with some wonderful surprises swimming about? And he was nice enough to include some words about each track….enjoy


Ok, I’ve included some footnotes…mix is best heard with marijuana & gin & tonic.
