8/2/12: Summer Sun

This week was the annual Fuzz Factory Summer Sun Show. Was it a Spectacular? Yes it was, because it was three full hours (42 songs) of summer music for a summer night! I relish features like this, because they allow me to branch out ever further from the broad scope of a typical Fuzz Factory show. Introducing your listening palette to sounds of a different color makes for a high quality listening experience. That’s why this show has resulted in a slightly lighter sound with a modest positive vibe. Not too much, just a peek of sunlight, that’s all. Because that’s what summer songs can do, even in the Fuzz Factory.

Summer, summer, summer. Some people love the summer and what it brings, some people do not. Regardless of the weather the season brings, summertime means many different things to different people. The summer sun brings back good memories from years gone by and thoughts of great adventures from all points in time, present past and future.

Check out the Summer Sun playlist below. Stay cool.
