With the Fourth of July fast approaching, you’ll definitely need a local mixtape to get you in the mood for freedom and fireworks. Enjoy the night and be safe.
Goldrush – Atomic Bomb Blues
We don’t have to worry. Once the “atomic bombs” (ie fireworks) go off in the sky, our attentions are all on the sky.
Against Grace – Rooftops
The best views of fireworks are on rooftops. Nothing to obstruct your view.
At the Stars – Luminary
This song just reminds me of the city going dark and the anticipation of the lights exploding in the sky.
The Snowy Owls – Meadow
One of my favorite places to watch fireworks was a friend’s apartment on Meadow Street. He also threw a killer Fourth of July party every year.
The Diamond Center – Bombay Beach
Bombs in the sky. People on the beach watching them burst.
Black Girls – All My Friends
The best fireworks are the ones you watch with your friends around you.
One Friend – Light So Bright
The night sky almost turns to day when the fireworks go off.
Jonathan Vassar and the Speckled Bird – The Sky and Country
Salute your country’s independence by gazing up at the sky. This is a new track from the group’s just-released album of the same name.
