Despite the large roster of contributors, the mixtape is cohesive, but blends together almost too much. It's a thematic release, so there's bound to be some overlap, but it occasionally feels like slight variations of the same few tracks, featuring new waves of smoky, glossy synths and drum pads, with heaps of pitch-shifting and an implicitly sexual aura. It's disorienting at times, but does lend itself well to nostalgically reminiscing about the summer season, especially as the chill of winter looms mighty once more.
The mixtape's best tracks are "Fan" by exuberantly warped pop-rockers/Mac DeMarco cohorts Walter TV, and the sexily grooving "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" by Montreal retro-laced synth-pop duo Vesuvio Solo. Both add a nice kick to the drug-addled fog of the rest of the mixtape which, at over an hour, tends to feel bloated and repetitive by its end. (Summer Cool)
