The Perfect Mixtape | Speakers + Summer 2010

It's been awhile since the three of us at Speakers in Code have offered up a perfect mixtape for you. But, there's really no better reason to bestow our favorite readers with a collection of sun-soaked tunes than the official first day of summer. Hurrah for plum pudding! Seriously, no sarcasm: we. are. pumped.

These fifteen songs bring to mind shady trees and warm breezes, sharp blades of grass prickling bare feet, and back porch beers on a humid day. Stream each song individually and download what you like. Or, download the entire mix as a ZIP file.

Happy summer, one and all.
