From The Vaults: Modcast #57 - The Warmth of the Sun

It is cold here in Seattle, and winter is on it's way. So, to take your mind off all that and focus it on something warmer and sunnier let's go once more into the vault my friends, once more into the vault. Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh. Step back to summer 2007. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

Summer will be officially kicking off this week so I've got a bunch of ... what do you think? Wrong! It's not a bunch of songs with summer in the title. Instead, I'm doing songs that remind me of summer, ar least of summer sun and warmth. You're going to hear a bunch of warm, sugary, summery, pop music that might or might not be twee, but certainly has a bit of the sixties and a bit of power pop going for it. So, enjoy this first episode of songs that benfit from the warmth of the sun. There's a second episode coming soon.
