It’s already that time again! The full moon is happening tomorrow and there’s also a lunar eclipse– if you are into astrology, I’m sure that all means something. Changes, beginnings, endings… but most obviously it is FINALLY the beginning of summer.
This mix is my ode to slow rollin’, summer chill vibez. Don’t worry, it’s not TOO chill! There is an appearance by the original nasty gal, Betty Davis, who is here to give us a full-on music history lesson (listen to the lyrics and take notes!) and there is some stuff that will make you want to shake it too.
Hopefully before the season is over, we will all have the chance to get naked and laze around under a giant palm frond on a desolate beach. If that’s not happening, bbq’s, iced tea, longboarding in Long Island, and NYC roof vibes will have to do.
Until next month (when I will be ten shades darker)… xoxo
Hi friends! It’s the biggest full moon of the year tonight and the second Full Moon Mix here at Wax + Cruz– I selected these songs with the MAGIC of nighttime in mind… a little bit tribal, a little bit synth, a little outer-spacey, with some gritty blues mixed in to keep it real…
Look up and howl this fine evening! xoxo
I am pretty psyched to share our first Full Moon Mix here at Wax + Cruz! Brought to us by my friend Bambouché who’s knowledge and taste in music is expansive and sweeping. One time when I was at his house working on a music project, I asked if he had a record with a marching band sample. He turned to his WALL of records and deftly pulled one specific album from the rows (he knew exactly where it was of course). He even knew what time the drum solo started (or pretty close at least). Then he set the needle down on the vinyl at exactly the right spot (or pretty close at least)! What a freak (Hi Bambouché!)– or a genius. Haha!
So the “I Won’t Be Back” mix comes from that mind– Bambouché takes us on a mysterious, jammy ride through the dark cosmos. It starts out a lover’s walk through a garden at night, but ends a wandering, mind-bending, outlaw’s journey. It’s probably stuff you’ve never heard before and will especially appeal to all you psych heads. There are some soulful, groovy moments too– “come on meditate, let’s contemplate!”– truly from another time.
Chuang Tzu says (or is it Bambouché?? — I don’t know): “Identify yourself with the infinite and wander freely in the unfathomable…”
All hail the Full Moon!!! Take a trip and enjoy….
