Summer Starts Today?

Apparently, here in Glasgow, today is to be the hottest day of the year so far. Mr Sunshine should be making his appearance within the next hour or so and the heat should hit 19 degrees celsius……

…..that’s only if you believe the weather boffins though. Maybe they’ve got it right (for once) or maybe they’re wrong and we’ll have another distinctly average day of weather. Distinctly average weather in Scotland means rain, sun, wind, more rain, cold breeze, really really warm for an hour, back to breezy, rain again, wind and then maybe some sleet to finish off the day. Basically, on a “good” day we could experience all four seasons in 24 hours.

Here’s a couple of interesting weathermen…..

“Pretty much everywhere’s gonna be hot….”

“Tut tut, Tomasz Scahfernaker…”

I do love the proper summer though and to be fair looking out at my current view it looks like it’s gonna be a nice day. A really nice day. Is summer here early and getting a dress rehearsal in for the coming months or will today just be a cameo appearance? Here’s hoping it’s the former. I’m looking forward to a summer of lazing about in the Botanic and Kelvningrove Parks with my girlfriend and best friends. Picnics and beer at the ready. Smokes rolled, iPods fully charged and the sun shining.

Anyway, the whole point of this post was to bring you the sound of pre-summer……the sunshines opening act if you like. It’s a little collaboration i randomly happened upon. It’s a collection of tracks courtesy of the musical minds that are Star Slinger and TEAMS. Call it re-works, call it sampling, call it whatever you want. But i call it summer.

I’m away to (hopefully) enjoy the sunshine.
