ottawa, playlist, summer, mixtape , new summer,

Well, summer is  half over. That doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze every last second out of nice weather and sunshine. Here in Ottawa , we know how important it is to hold onto the warmth, since 8 months out of our year we’re generally freezing our asses off. I’ve always been a huge fan of mixtapes and CDs over the years. You know, making a soundtrack for whatever occasion. I would burn excessive numbers of CD-Rs for road trips, camping trips, barbecuing, cutting the lawn… you get the idea. What better time of year to make a fun, danceable soundtrack for the hot sun and balcony beers. Also, a little shout-out to  Ottawa’s A Tribe Called Red for making it to the Polaris Prize Shortlist this year! We at Showbox are going to start dabbling more and more on Soundcloud to start bringing some fresh tunes your way. And if you’re wondering, the name of this one was inspired from the Young Galaxy song of the same name off of Ultramarine.
