A Summer Hymn

Summer Hymns' album Backward Masks has been out since last November, but it deserves to be played now and this weekend. Today, I'm thinking this is the musical personification of the whole pleasant side of the spectrum of summer. The iced-tea, the grass blowing in the wind, the reflection of the sun on the waves, the cool feeling of immersion and envelopment underwater. It's not sticky, this music is not about the sweat and the sand in your crevices, it's about air-conditioning, shade trees and parasols. Big Floppy hats and kite flying. All of these things are summer hymns.
