Well, its hardly the ideal summer here as the rain pours almost everyday, but I still have the image of Bora Bora’s pristine beaches as my screensaver. We all have fond memories of summer, but now is not the time to reminisce. Now there’s something from Jens Lekman, who’s been under the radar aside from doing Whip It. The goodie bag of tracks all started when Jens made a remix for his favorite Au Revoir Simone track, in which he took a 4/4 pop song and transformed it into a waltz. Then the mp3 spun out into this luscious quilt of cuts set in 3/4 time dubbed by Lekman “Summer In 3/4 Time.”

Here’s the playlist for the single file:
Au Revoir Simone – Shadows (Jens Lekman’s remix)
Barbara Mason – Oh How It Hurts
Thomas Mapfumo – Madiro
The Morning Benders – Excuses
dialogue from Gregory’s Girl (1981)
Chad & Jeremy – Everyone’s Gone To The Moon

Eggstone – Birds In Cages
Pete Drake – Forever
Armando Mantovani – Around the World
dialogue from Puberty Blues (1981)

Like A Sleepy Blue Ocean
