summer mix tape

I got this idea over at Glitter & Pearls to put together a mix tape and I thought what better theme for this time of year than summer. (Northern hemisphere readers, please put this in a safe place until the middle of the year x)

Most of these songs are the sound of this current summer but I've included a couple from previous years - listening to them brings back memories of bikinis, the smell of sunscreen, the feel of saltwater on your skin and the afternoon breeze off the ocean.

These songs sound like summer to me. Hope you enjoy!

1. Junk of the Heart (Happy) - The Kooks

2. Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

3. I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

4. Make You Happy - Josh Pyke

5. Cameo Lover - Kimbra

6. Techno Fan - The Wombats (because I would never make a mix tape without them on it x)

7. It's Nice To Be Alive - Ball Park Music

8. Punching in a Dream - The Naked and Famous

9. The Set Up (You Need This) - Reel Big Fish
