Published Apr 19, 2012After releasing a collaborative self-titled album with Spencer Clark as Inner Tube earlier this year, the Emeralds guitarist Mark McGuire has returned with some more ear candy for us.
This time it comes in the form of a mixtape that he curated for Self-Titled Magazine. It goes by the summery title Road Chief's Sun Burnt Reef Rash Beach Bash 2K12 and the vibe follows suit.
Clocking in at just over two hours, it's the perfect playlist to kick off your summer. McGuire also released the following statement along with the mix:
To help prepare your brains for the wavelength of Inner Tube, I pulled tunes from my favorite beach and summer mixes over the past four years, and turned them into a new extended sunburn experience. This is not just your typical "spring break hit Daytona with three kegs and PARTY DOWN" style beach jam, although there are some classic brew-spiking anthems like "Summer of '81" and "Me and the Boys" to get things rippin'.
However, it also takes you to the other side of the beach, where Redolfi and Iasos are hanging out tripping and watching the mix between sun and moon light glisten between the breaking wave caps as they stretch back to the horizon, connecting Earth to the 4D universal grid—the bridge between land and the mysterious world that exists in the vast network of the oceans and seas, and the still more wondrous world that exists far beyond the horizon. So as spring is springing, let's get stoked and set our sights on the inevitable summer stokers, and hit the beach that lies in each of our minds!
