The last few days of Sommer


Although we love the summer in Berlin, the truth is that it is about to end. However, this summer wasn’t short of excitement, colour, verve and all the good things associated with the sunshine. The scene won’t look so bright and happy, as it does in the picture above. But we can only appreciate this due to the dull grey days that will follow soon. Anyway, some late summer love from Patty Kay seems like the perfect way to end the season :

Airplanes – Summer Daydream


Its a few degrees higher, the sun is out, the birds are chirping, bees are buzzing and I am nursing the ‘lack of a hangover’, for the lack of a better word/phrase. Had only one pint of beer last night! The combination of extreme humidity (by Berlin standards) and virtually no alcohol (by my own standards), made it a night of uncomfortable, disjointed sleep. Consequently, I don’t feel my best and brightest and might just spend the day lying around, daydreaming and sipping choco milkshake in the complimentary Coca Cola glass (1994 edition) from McDonalds, features in the pic with Oakley shades  (Shameless product placement I know :)). Don’t really need a tan (am almost dark by European standards), so no motivation to as they say ‘Soak it in’. In the meanwhile, surfing soundcloud I came across this track by this US base band called ‘The Airplanes’. It fits my situation for the moment perfectly. The drums and the warped sounds in the middle are an absolute delight. I don’t know how I missed this one for so long ( a month). However here it is:

As always, if you like what you here more songs of theirs can be found on their soundcloud/bandcamp pages. All of their stuff is absolutely delightful (eargasm stuff) and  legitimately downloadable for free but you can also pay them what you wish to on bandcamp (I recommend that)
