Sunday is for long breakfasts and baking cakes and sweatpants and for watching toes swaying back and forth behind laptop screens. At least that’s what you’d see me doing if you could see me, which – god forbid – you can’t. The PONYDANCECLYDE SUNNY SUNDAY MIXTAPE VOL. 49 features tracks for exactly this state of mind. Enough said, here you go, enjoy your weekends and don’t forget to EAT MORE CHEESE.
It’s the first day in the year that Berlin has allowed our legs to experience the fresh summer air and to show some side butt, so it feels pretty obvious that we’re supplying you with an airy summery mixtape this week, full of happy feel-good tunes that you can listen to while strotting the streets with your sunglasses on.
On a quiet freezing cold Sunday on which our weekly mixtape should more appropriately be called ponydanceclyde snowy Sunday mixtape, we put together a couple atmospheric tracks for you to dream away to as you stare out your window at the snowflakes falling down.
With this Edition of the weekly PONYDANCECLYDE SUNNY SUNDAY MIXTAPE, we’re happily having a little indie feast for the end of an eventful week with some of our favourite indie lovers. First up, my favourite love song ever by Beat Culture, what might be the best remix of Pumped Up Kicks out there by End The Noise, another banging Selebrities remix and Just Go by GERMANY GERMANY and Steffaloo, a special closing track to celebrate two things: successful breaking-up AND – more importantly – the return to the music scene by one of the most noteable Canadian artists in 2012!
The independent music project from Victoria / Canada that is Germany Germany (Oh, what a name! Oh, why that name?) was already featured in my recent post about Toy Camera – a collaboration between Germany Germany and Steffaloo. Drew Harris, the man behind Germany Germany himself sums up his work with the word “Adventures”. Which is perfectly cohesive with the DIY aesthetic that forms the basis of the sound of Germany Germany: “the intention of creating something unique rather than something perfect”. Which is possibly also why his latest EP, out May 2011, is entitled Adventures. Transatlantic is one of my favourite tracks on the EP and I fell in love with the simply yet artsy yet authentic video right away.
