ST&SP Presents: Summer's Eve

I love mixtapes, to me they are one of the best ways to discover new music. There's a beauty in listening to a short segment of a song blend into the next one. I have collected a number of mixtapes over the years and they have greatly expanded my knowledge of music. I have thought about doing this for a while but never had enough time to spare cutting everything together. Yet here we are, Shiny Tops & Soda Pops Present: Summer's Eve, our first summer mixtape. There's something for everyone on this tape, download it, burn it to disc and pop it in your car for ultimate listening pleasure. This mixtape is dedicated to all the other blogs whose mixtapes have inspired me to do this: Aquarium Drunkard, The Rising Storm, Ponytone, Gentlebear  and Cold Splinters. We will see you in the winter with our next mix!
