summer vibes – a mix by brendan benham of the altos

I first heard Milwaukee’s The Altos in the middle of the night, outdoors on a river bank, surrounded by fog. Backlit by colored lights, all I could see were sharp black outlines cutting through the fog. It was an overwhelming experience – I was surrounded by friends, the stars were bright overhead, and the icy fingers of fall were creeping in. The Altos’ songwriting is dark and complex, and the sheer force of their sound can bowl you over. When I heard they were coming to The Shitty Barn in Spring Green, I invited them to make a mix. Brendan Benham volunteered, and curated a collection of songs having much in common with The Altos’ sound, but left to warm in the sunlight.

From Brendan:

These tracks have been in heavy rotation for me lately, soundtracking my summer.
Many of these bands are my friends, and I highly encourage everyone to check out
their records, as they are all fantastic.

This mix is for your summer. Cruise around town to it. Bask in the sun to it.
Smell the lilacs to it. Make out in backseats to it. Party into the night to it.

Shut your eyes and see.
