Breezy, hazed summer vibes abound on this amazing hour-and-a-half long mix that Peaking Lights put together for us, featuring sounds that (presumably) influenced the band’s brilliant new album, 936. The band says:

“this here is a party prep, works good after morning coffee too, or during an afternoon chillin session, it spans from the 50′s to the 90′s…it’s all about listening and there’s some far out jams on here! hope you’s dig!”

If you’re feeling these jams, make sure to check out Peaking Lights’ new record store archive blog GOLDEN RECORDS to download some incredible out-of-print 45s and other impossibly rare obscurities from their collection (these Brooks Arthur Ensemble songs, for example, are great). Download the mix below, and check out the tracklist after the jump…
